As I expected, when I took him in today, all I could do was tell him what is going on, the itching (an internal itch you just can't scratch enough) the warmth on that side and the puffiness-none of which were there today. Only the small red spot on his magnet area when the puffiness caused his processor magnet to need adjusting (which Gage did-I knew nothing about 'til it was too late and already pink)...But hopefully as the doc said, these meds will 'fix' the problem, we'll see how he does after the 10 days of antibiotic, if we have recurrent problems or have something visible, we'll likely have to go to IV-pic line again. This would mean a lot of changes, mainly no more subbing for me (he'd be home bound again) but luckily I still have the accountant's office which I could still do since hubs is home until noon (I am part time) so that would not be affected very much. We are back playing the unwanted game of hide-n-seek for a couple of weeks. Cross your fingers that 10 days will be all he needs!
We do not want this again!
