    Thank you all yet again. I just cleaned the area again and I am going to definitely have to take him in tomorrow. It is starting to open and he is now saying it hurts him. 2 of the 3 things the doctor told me to watch for yesterday. I really wish this poor kid could catch a break. I am just praying it won't be more surgery and that he will not have to stay over night. He hates that.

    Wishing you all the best, today. Hopefully they can suggest something that isn't invasive. My thoughts are with you all.

    Thanks, Cathy. I hope they can find an alternative as well, but I am almost sure it will be another surgery.

    If it turns out to require another surgery, Jonada, I hope it will be minor day surgery. You're such a good mom - watching for any signs of trouble and taking the right action as soon as you can. You've probably spared Chanse many uncomfortable experiences by being so watchful so please remember you are an integral part of both the good and the difficult times he's been through. Believe it or not, in time, this part your lives will become a bittersweet memory, and you all will have gained the strength and depth of character that sets you apart from the crowd - and makes you uniquely prepared to face any other challenges that come your way. It is, in many ways, a gift, but you earned it.

    Bless you all - I'm thinking of you and sending hope your way.

    I am so sorry to hear of this setback. I know how hard it is to watch a child go thru repeated surgeries (though mine was more-or-less an adult). It can be very discouraging, YOu are doing the right thing though in being so watchful and careful. Hang in there!

    I, for one, am visualizing the antibiotic whupping that infection's little cells to kingdom come forever and no more surgery! A whole army of warrior clad gladiators rushing in to destroy those nasty bugs. Hang in there, hopefully this is short and temporary setback. - martha

    Well, I took Chanse to the doctor last Tues. and they put him on an oral antibiotic. It and some cleaning daily with peroxide seem to have kicked the infection. They had a tentative appointment for tomorrow morning for possible surgery, but it is not necessary. He is healing right up. Sorry I haven't kept everyone more informed. You all deserve the good news as you have all let me lean on you for the bad news.
