He is still in hospital being treated for an infection, which has now moved onto his chest it got to the stage that he is on O2 but they wanted a bronchoscopy as the CT scan showed the infection had spread on his lungs. They also did a wash and took samples from his lungs.
It seems that they are treating him with the right AB for the infection that they identified straight away but they were still waiting on some other tests?
He has now been put on a mask with a saline bottle to moisten the air to his chest at a higher level. They have also found a few problems with his liver and kidneys but they put it more down to treatment and the infection than a major issue.
It was not until the new shift came on that a sister came in and told him while we were there, that they have had path lab call and say they have found bird flu virus from a swab? This now means he has to be moved from a positive pressure room to a negative pressure room. Plus everyone that enters the room must were a mask and apron before entering and that includes visitors keeping them on until they leave.
Even though the sister has said this is more a precautionary move and it does not look like it has developed into anything sinister. It is important that this is not spread to anywhere else in the hospital!
My son is hearing a more sinister message and in a bit of a panic that we hope is now quelled for now?
Fingers crossed it goes to plan now.
