So we are in the hospital again. Yesterday Ethan had a fever, and after figuring out we had a faulty thermometer, and borrowing a friends (thanks Becky), I realized it was higher than I originally thought. Needless to say, Merrill bought a new thermometer on the way home from work yesterday:)
They did a blood test when we arrived yesterday and found bacteria in his blood. They did more tests early this morning to try to figure out if it was coming from his PICC line, or is actually in his blood. We still haven't heard the results from those tests yet. We were told to plan on staying tonight and probably tomorrow night as well. He hasn't had any new fevers since we were admitted, so that is always a good sign:)
Some GOOD news we received yesterday was that Merrill got a new job! It is simply amazing to me that just when we needed it, he was able to get what we needed. This job is almost equal to the amount that we needed to cover our expenses since I had to stop teaching piano. I have no doubt of the Lord's hand in it:)
As always, thank you all for your love, support, and prayers!
