Welcome to the official Ezra blog, I plan to use this blog for medical updates for families and friends, and most importantly for Ezra to have to look back on someday. Thanks so much Leslie for designing this blog, its beautiful, someday Ezra is really going to appreciate it.
As most of you know we are back in the hospital. We have been here a week now, and are not leaving anytime soon. You can read what landed us back at the hospital here.
Ezra had a blood infection called Pseudomonas. He is receiving 14 days of antibiotics to wipe it out. It is a common infection that kids with ALL get, but is deadly if not treated immediately.
Today he had to have a surgery to remove his port. It had become infected. They can’t say if the other infection caused it or if it is another infection by itself. The Dr. said it was surrounded by a sea of puss….lovely.
So last night they put a PICC in place so they can administer his chemo and antibiotics through that.
Then in a few weeks he will receive another port , as long as his counts are still up. Hopefully this one will not become infected.
I was told today we are looking at least another week of hospital time. This is so hard on all of us.
I miss my husband, I miss Rowan, I miss my bed, and I miss my sanity.
