Happy Mother's day to all the mom's! (Day late, I know)
Hannah and I spent Mother's Day at the ER in Children's Hospital. I noticed early Sunday that at her port site, at each spot they had put in a needle, was red. I called her doctor and it turns out, she has a bacterial infection. They had to draw blood to find out if it was in her blood stream. They couldn't draw blood through the port though, because if the infection is just topical they don't want to push it into the port! So, they had to put an IV in her hand. Wow. That was very difficult. It took three grown adults to hold her down.
They gave her a dose of antibiotics through her IV and we go back in today to find out if the infection is in her blood stream. If it is, they will admit us. If not we can treat the infection with over the counter antibiotics at home. I am trying to pack for either case, but I just keep thinking how much I will have to unpack if we come back home today!
Anyway, I was thinking yesterday that it was a true, Day of a Mother! :-) Hope you all had a good one.
