Pretty good news...So by last night Alex's Lactic Acid was much lower. We believe it was probably still high from being so sick before he got his blood. Alex is feeling pretty good today. Really our only complaint is the continuing breakdown of skin around the Jtube. It is extremely red, burnt, and very angry looking. He also has ringworm in several areas that we have not been able to clear. They are thinking we need to try a systemic fungus medication. The major concern of course being the risk of allergic reaction. other then that no real concerns.
We are getting ready to go do the contrast study to make sure the Jtube is in place and not obstructed in any way. We are also revisiting whether we need to do the CT scan with contrast.
I will update if I learn anything new.
