Update on Zach's recovery
Finally Zach is feeling more like himself after his heart cath. Today, he had a ball playing outside. It's really the first day that he's felt like being up and around (and I was so worried about how to keep him from running and jumping!). He has run low-grade fevers on and off for several days and still had one on Friday night. We were concerned because his fever went up to 101.4 on Wednesday night and Thursday morning. I talked to the MUSC Ped. Cardiology Fellow twice and if it had continued, we would have carted him off to the doctor for some blood work to make sure there was no infection. Praise God, it never went that high again. The doctor said the dye they used during the cath can cause fever and the coils they placed also cause an auto-immune response. Hopefully we are past all that now. God answers prayer!
