Baby Morgen is still in Vanderbilt Children's Hospital, I was there all day. Several doctors came by as well as a group of students. His WBC this morning was 9.8, UA looked good, no temp, still on IV Rocephin. The doctor said that his WBC is elevated in his spinal fluid and that the culture will be ready Wednesday afternoon as well as the blood and urine cultures. He looks sooo much better. Thank God we live close to Vanderbilt. The hospital is "huge" and quite a place. It's about 10 stories high. Each floor devoted to different diagnoses. They have 2 ER's. One is for children who are sent over by their pediatrican and there is no waiting (this is where Morgen was sent). The other is a regular walk in ER but for peds only. Each floor has an awesome playroom. Today they had live puppet shows and clowns visiting. The TV has alot of educational shows on 24/7 i.e. "Taking care of your child's new colostomy". Everyone has been wonderful to us My SIL is there now. They have loads of security, all of the units are locked down. You have to have a special pass from the parents in order to actually get in.
You can send him an e-card in the hospital. How neat is that!
If you would like to send dd or the baby an get well e-card at the hospital, PM me and I'll give you the names and room number. First I posted them because you're all my friends and then I thought, ah oh this is the world wide web, better PM that info. Thanks for all the get well prayers! I love you guys. I'll check my PM's in the morning before I leave.

Good morning everyone. Waiting for a change in my patient assignment. The patient I was to see passed away sometime during the night. His wife was a lovely lady and I'll be praying for her. Well, guess I better get ready just in case they send me a distance from home.
I'm so glad Morgan is doing better. I'll keep the little one in prayer for a full recovery.
I hope you all have a lovely God blessed day.
