A 3 year old little boy, 6 days in a Children's Hospital, and 6 medications later equals 1 exhausted mother.
Wednesday night (one week ago), Matthew woke up with a limp on his right leg. Later that day it progressively got worse to where he could not even stand on it and was in severe pain. So, off to the Urgent Care, ran blood tests, and then off to the ER. He had a Septic Hip... basically it is arthritis in the hip that had developed a bacterial infection so there was fluid. They believe that it could have come from his ear infection that he had a couple weeks ago.
Monday, they ran another blood test to make sure the CRP and ESR was okay. CRP came back elevated... more than when he was admitted... not good! We had to stay another day and hope that the number goes down the next day. They were thinking that it went up because of the inflamation in his body from his "asthma".
Now, Matthew will have to go through a month of antibiotics and another blood test at the end of next week to make sure the infection in his hip gets better.
Some of you were following Matthew's progress on Facebook and I want to send a HUGE THANK YOU for all your thoughts and prayers. He is doing much better!
