We are hoping to get out of here today!  Owen needs to get blood work done, again.  He got bloodwork done this morning, but since he is so small they are only able to draw so much at once.  So, here we wait for Phlebotomy to come by again.  They are supposed to come between 3-4:30pm.  Although, this morning they left him for their last stop because they know he is such a hard stick and it takes them a little while to find a good vein.  Poor baby!  He won't need as much blood drawn this afternoon then what he got drawn this morning.  Depending on the results of the bloodwork we will be able to go home.  I guess if everything is about the same or better then they will send us home with very close follow-up.  Owen got his IV out this morning.  It was so red and irritated and you could tell it was really bothering him.  He also seemed constipated to me so I asked them to give him a stool softener and it really seemed to help.  He isn't so antsy.  Hopefully the next time I post it will be from home!!!! 

Please, continue to pray that they will be able to find a source of infection or better yet that his white blood cell count will go down to where it should be and that Owen won't need to have a liver biopsy!!!
