We had a regularly scheduled appointment with Dr. Romp, our cardiologist at UAB this morning. He did another echo of Kevin's heart and praise the Lord! The fluid is gone, and the rind around his heart is THINNING! It's still there, but it's thinner! YAY! Keep Praying! God is dissolving that watermelon rind! Thank you Jesus! (And since it appears the fluid issue is so much better, Kevin now only has to take one aspirin per day compared to six!)
Dr. Romp referred us to an infectious disease doctor concerning Kevin's rash and fever. We will see him in a week or two, unless Kevin's fever persists. If Kevin still has fever Thursday, Dr. Romp wants to admit Kevin to Children's Hospital (not UAB since this isn't a heart issue). He wants Kevin thoroughly checked out, blood cultures run, etc. to keep a close watch on whatever this might be. Maybe it's just a virus, but maybe it's something more serious. (He mentioned a syndrome associated with the Bactrim antibiotic he is on for the staph he got in the hospital. After discussing with the ID doc, Dr. Romp took Kev off Bactrim and changed him to Amoxycillin as of today)
So...please pray for no more fever and the rash to CLEAR UP! Will you be swimming in the next day or two? If so, when you jump in that crystal clear water...pray for crystal clear skin and no fever for little Kevin, would you? Or I tell ya what: I KNOW you'll be taking a bath in the next day, right? ;) As you wash away your dirt and sweat, will you pray the Lord will wash away Kevin's rash and fever? THANK YOU SWEET FRIENDS AND FAMILY!!!!!!!!
Kevin really has perked up even more today! He's been a silly little peanut, and we are so cautiously optimistic! It's so refreshing to have our little Kevin back in the action again!
