Day 5

Day 5 in ICU. Lennyn has been fussy while awake the last two days and has been running warm all day today. She’s sleepier today than she’s been. She’s either up crying, feeding, or sleeping. Her white blood cell count is higher in her csf than it was the day after surgery so hopes for this drain coming out Monday are pretty much out the door. She needs a few clear csf cultures before it comes out, each culture is 72 hours, and the only way they have access to the csf is the brain drain. They’re tapping and running another culture tomorrow so I’m hoping we start to see it go down and start to see her coming back to life again. Still on Vanco every 6 hours. Infections in the brain are no joke. Keep the prayers coming 😞 #lennynstrong
