    UPDATE: Latest report, he is doing better! We are hoping that continues. Thanks for the good thoughts and prayers. Radwife and I are breathing a little easier at the moment,

    My 14 month old grandson had a severe reaction to antibiotics given for an ear infection. Our local hospital had him transported the Stanford Children’s Hospital. Stanford chose to send down their own critical care ambulance for transport with three medical people on board.

    They got him stable and his temperature came down from 105. Two days later they discharged him with specific instructions to watch him carefully. The temp is back up to 105 and my daughter and husband just left for Stanford.

    They have said that there is no treatment at this point, serum syndrome, they call it, will have to run its course. The little guy has to find a way to fight it off

    I’m scared, feeling completely helpless. I’m the dad and granddad and I fix things, make things better……I can’t do a anything to make it better.

    I try to relax, play guitar and after a few minutes I realize I have no idea what I was playing, I just put it back down.

    If ya have any good vibes send them this way for G

    This sounds really horrible, radd.

    When it comes to our little ones we are much more helpless than with grown-ups who can tell what`s wrong with them.
    I really can feel your pain, since my son put me through a lot of very alarming situations when he was a little kid, too.

    I keep your beautiful grandson and your family in my prayers and if that is not the way that you believe in I am sending you good thoughts over the pond to you and your loved ones.
