Nothing has really been pinpointed about why Joey is feeling how he is feeling. He was all set to go home today, then his stomach pain got worse and he had a bad episode of rigors (really severe shivers), and a fever, so it looks like he’ll be staying in for at least one more night. Antibiotics have been started. Blood cultures have been done, so now we just have to wait for things to grow…unfortunately it takes days to get all of the results back. His liver enzymes were tested again this morning and nothing turned up (in fact, things looked better this morning than they did when he came in). Mega frustrating. At least he is starting to look a bit better now than he did earlier this afternoon.
More when we know anything.
