Conway started acting a bit off Thursday afternoon. By Friday night he had a fever of almost 101. While that's not outrageous, it doesn't take much to scare us with our Connie. He was gagging and spitting up saliva too. We think he must have drainage or something in the back of his throat. Dr. Davis wanted to see him during his Saturday office hours this morning so we went in for a strep culture and the once over. The rapid screen came back negative but he's sending it off to the lab anyway for the definite answer (it'll be back Monday). We left with a two day supply of Cefexime (sp?), an antibiotic. He felt pretty warm tonight but tylenol seemed to get him comfortable.
Update on Connie's heart friend: He had the full surgical repair is recovering very well so far. Thank you for your prayers!

A local boy who's family we 'met' through the Heart to Heart group is getting ready to have his Double Switch at Stanford in CA. He has the same defects as Connie. His testing day is today, a pre-op cath tomorrow and the big day is Friday. Please tuck Grant (about 11 months old) and his family in your prayers as they deal with being away from home and all the feelings associated with handing a little, happy boy over to a medical team and trusting in God to guide everyone involved.
