Well, the good news (and perhaps his gift for his 4 month b-day) of the day is:

The latest culture for the yeast came back negative!!
They'll run another culture to make sure it wasn't a false negative, but it looks like we've beaten the yeast. That is extremely good news. I am so relieved! That means that a lot of complications (such as having to remove the Broviac central) aren't an issue anymore!

He's done pretty well for the 2 hour stints that he's been off the narcotics while the AmBisome runs. They'll leave him on that for several weeks even now that he's negative for yeast, as a prophylactic treatment (to prevent it from coming back - and I don't want to hear one joke about rubbers either!)

So we go back up in 20 minutes, and I'm going to run outside and enjoy this gorgeous day, and it is gorgeous!
