Today we've encountered one of the downsides of antibiotics. Though his treatment of antibiotics was absolutely necessary, it also diminished his immune system, allowing a systemic fungal infection that was diagnosed today. While quite serious because it's in his bloodstream, it IS treatable and he's been started on tough anti-fungal medication. The infection is tough on him and it may explain why he's been so weak and unresponsive since his surgery a little more than a week ago. He's still not talking or eating yet, hopefully soon he'll start vocalizing again.
On a positive note... we showed him the video from some of his Highland classmates, and it definitely piqued his interest. We really enjoyed seeing it as well! We'll continue to show it to him, along with the Mercersberg video, the Voicethread, and any other videos you send our way!
