A few days back in the hotel

Since our last hospital visit, Jake has been on large doses of medications.  He’s been in and out of school because the side effects of those medications.  Over the last few days, his blood test results for kidney function had finally improved to the point where he was back to where he was supposed to be.  Then…

He developed some flu like symptoms yesterday, and by today he was at a 103 degree fever.  When we took him to the doctor, his kidney blood test levels were terrible (far worse than they were two days ago), and he needed to be readmitted to the hospital.  He’s on IV antibiotics for the fever (to make sure it’s not a blood infection), and will be for at least another 36 hours.  We hope to be out by Friday.  If the blood tests still show kidney problems tomorrow, he’ll have a kidney biopsy again tomorrow, and we’ll see what’s going on.

I bought him the Lego chess set, and there will be some games later on.  He’s got his/my iPad, and I’ve got my 3 year old underpowered netbook so I can attempt some Zune streaming music.
