Eli's heartrate and respirations remain high. His port stopped working last night. They are thinking that the blood clot is now obstructing the catheter. They ended up switching his antibiotics to J tube just for the night so they can figure out what they want to do next. They aren't sure if they want to do more meds to try and break up the clot or if they simply want to remove the port and try to remove the clot at the same time. There will be a meeting this morning between the night shift docs and the day shift docs. We have so many mixed feelings about everything happening right now.
He ran a fever once overnight as well, but it came down easily with tylenol and hasn't come back. He will be taken off of his feeds at 8am, but will still be given pedialyte by J tube to keep him hydrated. As of right now they don't have a working line so IV fluids aren't possible.
We will try and update more today as possible!
