MRSA and Care Center

Well, the infection is going in the right direction. The doctors have decided to send Elyza to a care center. We have mixed feelings about going to a care center. On the one hand, we want what is best for her. But we were looking forward to going home with a homehealth nurse, but they decided to send her to a care center instead. It is hard when we have a littleseventh to take care of as well.

After almost two weeks, we have returned to the hospital. Elyza has staff, it is just below the skin, and it hasn’t hit her shunt, yet but it is a major concern. We will probably have a central Iv installed in her arm today. They are planning to keep her on antibiotics until the time of removing the hardware comes. Then they still have to test the bone, to make sure that it did not get infected, hopefully it stayed clean.
