Day 24 – 20th November

Thomas’ infection markers have come down from 177 to 156. This is good news.

The large rash turned out to be a clot that had formed in his vein that had burst and come to the skin, looking like a large bruise. Hopefully this will fade quickly now it has come to the surface.

He has been having a problem with his blood pressure being low, so one of his heart medications has been stopped. This has caused him to have a few SVT episodes so has been started on a new medication to control his heart rhythm.

Thomas has also had to have his feeds stopped due to him having a few episodes of vomiting all of them back. The dietician will see him and decide how to move forward with this.
