If you read a bit about Bentley yesterday, you will know that we had to make an unexpected trip to the Drs. office yesterday.. we were given no definite news, but also a little unexpected possible scary news. There is a spot on Bentley's incision that appears to be infected... so we called and were told to come in right away... Bentley's pediatrician was on vacation so she was seen by another pediatrician in the office. He seems to think it is either irritated or infected so he called in an antibiotic creme and he wants to follow up in a few days so he can see it and compare. We are praying that this creme will help. Now the scary part.. he repeatedly stressed that we must watch this extrememly close.. if there is any sign at all that this is getting worse and not better.. we have to go back to the dr. office right away... he said it could very well be MRSA (aka staph) that it is going around right now. Which is very scary to us... it can be fatal. So we can only hope and pray that this is not MRSA and the creme will help remove any infection that may be there. I guess, at the moment we can look on the bright side that he was not alarmed enough about this to take further action, it's just scary. This is also a little frustrating because we have taken such good care of the incision, because of Bentley's age.. she is contsantly drooling so since day 1 we have been taking all steps to keep the incision perfect and well protected.
Oh, and the girl IS gaining weight. She has gained 1 pound in just almost but not quite 3 weeks.. this is a lot for her. =)
Remember Shannon, she won a engraved tile from Engraved Uniques. Here is the one she picked out.. isn't great! I just love them. By the way, Kaye has Bentley's tile up on her site and it can be purchased at the link above.
