This little piggy is very, very red. Well it has taken all day, but we finally know that Teagan's foot and now his hand have staff infection. We worried for a while that it was a major blood clot that was throwing. But infectious disease thinks it is staff and after a major ECHO, that Teag was excellent for might I add, we agree. They are giving him antibiotics for them and will keep a close eye on them. He also tested + for seadiff (spelling). They don't feel it is bad enough to treat and say most babies under 6 months have it anyway. He did not pass his swallow study, he aspirated, so we will try again when he gets his voice back. I don't know if I mentioned, but they have been worried about his vocal cords because his cry is so soft, but yesterday they did a scope and they are not paralyzed just weak and should get better with time. So more tests tomorrow, but today was his best breathing day, still a lot of crap, but better.
Attitude is everything. Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle. Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly, because life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass... it's about learning to dance in the rain.
