Hospital Day Three

Harper was doing really well with his first full day of antibiotics and his eye looked much better. I was hoping that meant it was just a run of the mill infection. However, when the lab results came back yesterday we found out it is MRSA. Even though it seemed to be responding to broad based antibiotics they needed to put him on another stronger one. They started that one last night and are monitoring his kidney function because it is a very powerful drug. I have to say that MRSA scared me because it is so dangerous for small children. But we have faith they are on top of it and doing everything they can. Jeff brought Keegan to the hospital yesterday and we all had dinner together. It was a nice visit. I slept at the hospital last night and unfortunately woke up with the worst migraine of my life. Of course they were in and out waking both myself and Harper up and there were lots of other noises including construction. By the time Jeff arrived I gulped down two pain killers and waited for them to at least enable me to drive home. I have had a 3 and half hour nap and now I am heading back to the hospital. Hopefully we will be discharged tomorrow and can get back home. We will also see a pediatric ophthalmologist to try and resolve the original blocked duct problem.
