Everytime I write about TeenGirl being healthy… on the road to recovery, we hit another darn speed bump. As I write this, we are sitting in the ER at Doernbecher. Evidently TeenGirl has developed an infection from the chemical burn she developed on her left foot during her first night in the PICU last month. She got this lovely burn from a potassium IV that infilterated. Six weeks have passed and the burn is still not healed… it looks like a big, ugly, oozy ulcer. Today it has really started to swell and turn red… up her calve in addition to her foot. It’s really not a pretty sight. I decided that I really wasn’t comfortable hanging out until morning to take her in so I called the peds on call Doctor and they said to bring her in… So here we sit. I was forewarned to be prepared for admittance for a course of IV therapy. Yippee. Why is it that every little thing turns into a major deal with this kid?
