Today we had Dane christened. It was very bittersweet, I put on a brave face but inside I was falling apart. All our closest family was there and it was the first time my father had gotten to see Dane. Now he realized how sick Dane was. Dane had been stable since last night and this was the first time I was able to hold him. I keep touching him. I was so scared he would never wake up or if he did he wouldn't know I was his mother.
The bacterium that is attacking Dane's heart is finally identified, it is Pneumococcal and the main part of the infection was around his aortic valve.
