So the good news is that Magnus's white blood cell count this morning was back to normal and his temperature has also been normal. But the bad news is that since he "spiked a temp" earlier, they need to let the cultures they took this morning grow for 48 hours to rule out infection.
So, the earliest we could go home is Saturday. However, there are a few things that could stymie this plan: he could get another fever, the cultures could turn up positive at some point, or the doctors could just decide that he needs a 7-day course of IV antibiotics (he is now on day 3). But we're keeping our fingers crossed that none of that happens and we get out of here Saturday.
