Well, our little man just can't quite seem to catch a break. This morning they were worried enough about his rash that they called the dermatologist in to look at it because it seemed to have gotten a little worse overnight. They still haven't figured out what it is but have started him on antibiotics and antivirals to try and stop the growth of it. They have taken a whole bunch of cultures and are checking his blood to see if it is a localized thing on his skin or if it has spread to his blood/the rest of his body. Please pray that this is not the case!!! He has a much better chance of being treated for it and not having it cause as many problems if it stays only on his skin. All the medicines they have started him on are going to be hard on his already damaged kidneys so please also pray that they will tolerate the medicines and not get damaged further. In a few days they want to do a spinal tap to see if it is in his spinal fluid. At this point, we don't really know what the "best case scenario" that we want is because none of it is very promising. Cohen is being moved to an isolation room until they figure out what he has. Please continue to pray as he is very sick. Pray that whatever this is stays only on his skin and doesn't go into his bloodstream or elsewhere. Pray for his mom and dad as their hearts are hurting for their baby. We know he is a fighter and we pray he will continue to fight.
