Tyler Update

Well, I should know better than to say that things are going well. Ty had clinic yesterday and I am sad to say that he is fighting yet another horrible MRSA infection. His stomach and chest are covered in little sores and it is very, very red and irritated. I can't imagine how it must feel.

MRSA seems to like our family. Brent has a horrible sore on his foot right now and I just got over another round. It's bad enough for us to fight it. But when Ty gets it, it makes me very nervous. Thankfully his counts are still holding steady and he hasn't been running a fever. Because of that, and the fact that we have been down this road several times before, they let us come home. Ty has to be on IV antibiotics
, (Vancomycin,) every eight hours for the next two weeks. We pray that this will do the trick and we can avoid a Strong vacation.

The saddest part of this whole thing is that Tyler will have to miss his last days of pre-school. I am so disappointe
d. He has truly enjoyed getting back to school this summer. He is just so cute getting on the bus!

So for now Ty is on quarantine again. Please continue to keep him in your prayers.

h love!!
