Conner is in the PICU at Dell Children's Hospital diagnosed with shock, pre-renal failure (kidneys), and he's acidotic. They are growing blood cultures to see if he is in septic shock. He was inconsolably crying and in obvious pain for about 15 hours. This all started suddenly with the onset of fever Tuesday afternoon at 5PM, followed by bloody diarrhea, and vomiting. ER doc ordered ultrasound of bowels to check for intussusception of bowels, but it was clear. Then they started thinking he might have a bacterial infection in his bowels. After he was admitted to the hospital (on regular floor), he began convulsing and his skin became mottled. That's when they started thinking maybe his bacterial infection moved to his blood and he was going into shock. He was transferred to PICU and will remain here until they can figure out what's going on. Poor guy has been miserable. We covet your prayers!!!
