Erin is doing pretty good. Still no big fevers.
The sore in her diaper area was looked at today with an ultrasound to make sure it wasn't abscessed. They sedated her for the ultrasound and planned on poking the sore and draining it if it was abscessed. I am glad it wasn't. They have determined that it is Cellulitis, which is basically an inflamed swollen area. It is caused by bacteria entering the skin and with her nonexistent immune system she hasn't been able to fight off the infection. The doctors have started her on a new antibiotic (I don't have the name) that is designed to target tissue infections. I hope it works.
Her WBC (white blood cells) count is creeping up very slowly. Over a week we've noticed that it's moved from 0.6 to 1.0. I know that doesn't seem like much, but it's been really a big thing for us since the counts are moving UP as opposed to just being ZERO. All of her other counts are still zero.
