ASM post MRSA

ASM's infection is officially Methacillian Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), which is resistant to most (all) forms of antibiotics. It can be quite serious. The only way to get it out was how we did it - a shot of whiskey and a sharp knife (OK, maybe we used a hospital and lots of doctors...we do have insurance after all).

Anyway, ASM is A-OK. She was a little funny when they gave her the "Knock out" drug, which made her act 3 sheets to the wind before she had to leave us for the OR. I hope I never see her in this condition as a teenager, but I'll not love her less.

The surgery took less than 20 minutes. Recovery took about 3 hours, enough for 2 bags of Teddy Grahams, a cherry popsicle and 2 purple popsicles. We'll keep her on Tylenol and not let her walk up/down the stairs by herself until tomorrow. She'll be able to go back to daycare on Monday.

Thanks for your prayers. Rachelle and I are doing OK too (though R has had a headache all day).
