Prayers needed this morning! Last night was a long and scary night. Around 10:00 Alex started shaking uncontrolla​bly. His whole body was shaking and he was scared and uncomfortab​le. His temp was 100.7, but not a big deal. Over the next 2 hours we watched his temp climb to over 105. The shaking continued and he started retching. His heartrate never came below 180 and was as high as 215. We drew labs, cultures and cathed him for urine. His lactate was extremely high. At that point none of his other labs were back and Dr. koenig felt like it could be a metabolic crisis brought on by feeds. So we stopped feeds. This morning his labs look horrible and definitely indicate an infection. Overnight his fever came down after starting 2 strong antibiotics. This morning the fever is gone, but he still feels really cruddy. Please pray for Alex to feel better, for the doctors to have wisdom, and for me to have strength on no sleep.
