Keep fighting Sully!

Sullivan's blood test came back positive for an infection so his antibiotic was changed to best match the specific bug. Infections are a side effect of having IV lines in for long periods and of being on the ventilator.

Most adults wouldn't survive what Sul is going through right now. Our surgeon says that babies are more resilient than adults. Sully has a tube down one nostril going to his stomach, the ventilator down the other nostril, an IV in one hand, one foot and in both inner thighs...he has just a bit of lung but still tries to breath over the ventilator when he can and has had major surgery to rearrange his he is fighting a blood infection and pneumonia. I can feel how strong he is when I sit beside him and hold his hand.

Dig deep little one...
