when i got to the ER, they were just about to move him to his room. oh, and he was on morphine because they CUT OPEN the cysts and sent cultures to the lab! O.M.G!! he was fine, he gave me a goofy morphine induced smile. we went up to his room, he was waving to everyone that walked by...he was loving the attention! we almost had him asleep twice, but one thing or another would wake him up, and he'd get a burst of energy. that night we didn't get him to sleep until after 11:30!! this is a kid that's in bed by 7:oo on a nightly basis! we were exhausted! my awesome hubby stayed on the pull out couch with david. i went home to emily. didn't go to bed until also 2am.
i'll spare you the rest of the boring details, like how he pulled out his IV and needed a new one...ugh! the test results revealed it was definitely a case of MRSA-which is what his dr thought-but the meds he was on weren't working. we never knew where the rash came from. probably a reaction to the first set of meds, its almost gone now though. so he's home with a new med--i'm trying to come up with creative ways to give it to him. it smells like pissy toilet water, i'm not even kidding! i think i'll try it in some strawberry milk today, apple juice didn't work! he still may have to have the rest of it cut out. to avoid that we'll be doing warm compresses and baths frequently to try and get it out on our own.
i have to say, for being confined to his room he really was a good boy! at times you could tell that cabin fever was setting in-for all of us-but he hung in there! we got him home yesterday afternoon, and he napped for 3 hours in his own crib!!
and here is emily. happy as a clam that david wasn't around!!
