DAY THREE...

This isn't a great picture to show the redness because of the lighting, but as you can see, the infection has spread once again.  The ER marked his arm for the third time to outline the red and sent him up to the infusion unit to receive IV antibiotics for his cellulitis.  He'll continue taking his two oral antibiotics and will go back in tomorrow and the next day for IV treatments.  Hopefully THIS will allow his arm to start the healing process AND allow this family a hiatus from any more hospital trips.
(It's not so bad when you get to spend the afternoon watching March Madness)

March has nothing on the Ortons when it comes to MADNESS!
Good heavens, I hope hospital trips will soon become a distant memory.

Has the elbow been x-rayed to check it out? So sorry Bub has to go through all of this, and you as well. Enough is enough!
