May 15th – RVP and Coughs and Pedialyte, Oh My

Mr. John - May 15th

John’s weight remained the same, but he was also on a restricted diet and wasn’t allowed a full feeding due to his surgery.He’s currently receiving 7mils of Pedialyte® through the tube an hour to keep him hydrated. We’re hopeful his weight gain will continue after normal feeding resumes on Friday.

His geneticist is running additional tests to rule out any enzyme concerns.

He’s also developed a rather harsh cough over the past few hours. An RVP and a test for pertussis was taken. We should have results for the RVP by the next day, the pertussis may take up to a week. They’re looking for any possible respiratory issues such as a virus or other condition.
