Update

Keegan's fever never went above 100.5 today, which was a good start. He was a bit more active throughout the day, but he is not eating any solids. So far, he has taken enough formula/milk to not need IV fluids, but it has been close. Keegan was seen by the Infectious Disease team today. They are also concerned about his tongue and some rashes he has had since the fevers first spiked. They still believe it is viral, and they are ordering several more tests to be run tomorrow. We have officially determined that his ears are not the source of infection, nor the source of the fever. At least they've ruled one thing out.

So far, his heart seems to be taking all of this alright. He had an echo today, but we haven't heard what the results of that were yet. However, his bloodwork has been all over the board. His immune suppressant levels shot through the roof today, which is unusual and kind of shocked everyone. A lot of his numbers just don't add up right now. As always, we will let you know as we know more. I think the biggest problem right now is that we just don't know exactly what's wrong. We appreciate your prayers and ask that you continue to keep Keegan lifted up. We are confident God will not foresake what He fought so hard to save. We will walk through the valleys knowing that He is with Keegan every step of the way.
