We’ve been fighting some warts over the last several months on Quinnlin’s arm. It’s not been easy because she is immunosuppressed. One of the area on her became infected over the weekend and it looked an awful lot like the time on Gage’s arm he had MRSA. I started having flashbacks so I called the transplant team even as I knew we’d end up in the ER yesterday.
Which is how last Sunday played out. Quinnlin had me spray some cooling spray on her neck, she rubbed her eye and poison control sent us directly to the ER for flushing it out and a cornea check. It was an easy ER trip, especially since poison control had called ahead and the doctor was waiting on us.
So, this isn’t our first rodeo, as I explained to a terrific ER doctor who was stunned as I rattled off answers to all of his questions. I’d explained that our last experience with something similar landed us in the hospital 5+ days. It was decided that we’d fight it quickly with IV antibiotics and give it a day and see how it looked.
It looks better this morning and there is talk we’re on our way home with an oral antibiotic. Allegedly. We will see when the next doctor makes rounds this morning. I will confess that on more than 10 occasions on a holiday we’ve ended up in the ER. I do not know why this is but it is true.
Quinnlin is excited to get home today but would still like to stay out of school tomorrow. Like residual rest for an arm bump. This is not yet cleared by the doctors.
