The Drs informed us that the Infectious Disease (ID) team have requested that Sam undergo a bunch of tests to ensure that the fungus (still unknown what?) is not in any of his systems, so today whilst he was in recovery and still dazed he had an ECG done of his heart. Tomorrow an ophthomologist is coming to check out his eyes and he is booked in for ultrasounds of his liver/kidneys etc, all to see if fungus can be detected.
Having taken out the line we hope the fungus no longer has a home and can be overwhelmed by the drugs, but if it has lodged in other systems, my understanding is that it is a whole different scary monster to deal with. It all sounds pretty serious and yucky.
Am happy that Sam coped well with theatre and was sitting up watching Elmo on tv early evening, but feeling anxious to see how he responds to meds and how he copes overnight.....unfortunately we just have to wait and see, and that in itself is a bit of torture for me....tomorrow there should be more information and then I've been told that ID will come to tell us more about length of treatment etc. There is something slightly frightening even about their job title, a bit like Cruella De Vil coming for dinner.....but I know they will do what's best by Sam.
This afternoon so much kindness appeared in our room - new friends with bags of meals and drinks and supplies.... so practical and so heart warming....and such fun as they laughed and interacted with Sam and prayed with him.
Off to sleep, so thankful for a good day........aahhh sleep, that long lost friend. Thank you everyone for your love and prayers for our special wee man.
