Final update on Tyler~staph infection.

* Helping Daddy build a fence around the garden.*

Last Monday Tyler had blood drawn so it could be tested for any residue of the staph infection. We waited anxiously this week, hoping to NOT hear from the Dr. If his Dr. would have called it would have meant more treatments/hospitalization because the infection would have been back!
Thankfully, no Dr. has called and we just returned from what was our LAST Dr. appointment. TYLER HAS OFFICIALLY BEEN DISCHARGED FROM MEDICAL CARE!!
His improvements will continue and be measured in weeks, rather then in days and hours. A full recovery, (internally) is expected 1-2 months from now. We are encouraged to build his system with probiotics and children's multi vitamins and rest. Our bodies are AMAZING and take great care of us most of the time. His body is working hard to recover and rebuild what was destroyed during this antibiotic treatments.
I see our normal little boy again.
The only remaining issue is the rash on his arm where the picc line was. This is not a concern to the Dr., but is annoying to Tyler as it heals. The hole where the picc line went in is closing nicely as well.


This morning at our visit with Dr. Furman, the infectious disease Dr., he asked Tyler, "how are you feeling?" "I'm feeling much better, I can run and jump again and nothing not even hurts!" he happily replied. "Oh that's wonderful news Tyler, do you like to eat food? What's your favorite food? If you could eat anything you wanted, all day long, what would it be??"



I held my breath.





"Lettuce."



My eyebrows rose with pleasure! Seriously? Lettuce!!'



Good boy Tyler, goooood boy!!


Tyler ended our time with one more question directed toward the Dr......"And did you know I had 11 shots?" Raising his hands up to the Dr. Furman's face, and flicking each finger toward the sky, 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10, (two pointer fingers up) 11!!!!
