25 January 2010


Jeremy had a good morning today, he played "shops" and managed to "sell" things to the doctors, and even asked for a pre-order for tomorrow! It got better when Stephanie arrived, as they started writing up lists of things to sell. Then the play therapist brought a bucket-full of plastic food, which then helped them visualise all the items they were selling. After seeing this, the play therapist came back with a shopping trolley, and for a while, Jeremy raced up and down the hallway with the trolley and his medicine drip stand.

The doctors confirmed the bugs grown from both cultures was the gram negative infection klebsiella. They have now changed his antibiotics again to suit this bug.

The doctors are now more confident that the rash does not appear to be GVHD, and do not think that it was caused by a food allergy. Their suspicion is that it was caused by all the toxins in Jeremy's body when he had the septic shower from the bugs in his line.
