Just a quick post to let you know we did make it home in time to spend Mother's Day together as a family! Hooray! Mason enjoyed playing on his play set with a few of his cousins on Mother's Day. (Thank goodness for pain meds...because his back is still very tender!)
(Sunday was quite a windy day......can you
tell from Mason's nice hair do?)
So far nothing has grown from the cultures taken when Mason's incision was reopened last week! I'm glad, because if something had grown then he would need IV antibiotics for at least 6 weeks! But weird, because we'd hoped that was the cause for the fevers and high infection markers in his blood work the last few weeks. Hopefully the fevers will just stay away and we just won't have to worry about it any more!
So far since Sunday, Mason has been fever free! Ya! Although, his back still seems to be tender and causing him pain. Poor little guy! And Wednesday we spent 6 hours up at Primary's because his incision was starting to look infected again, but his blood work showed no signs of infection......thank goodness! So the Orthopedic resident cleaned it up and re-steristripped it (Dr. Smith and his partners were all out of town at a conference) and we will take him back in to see Dr. Smith next week.
Thank you for you continued love, concern, and prayers. Soon I need to do a post with lots of pictures from the last 2 months. Springtime is just a very busy time at our house with baseball, lacrosse, and dance!!!
