Today Caleb is, back in the hospital. He started complaining of his arm hurting almost 3 weeks ago, he asked me to take him to the ER a little over a week ago, this was a trend for 8 straight days. On our 8th trip with no answers I demanded he be kept. They originally suggested gout. My gut told me different.
Caleb was In great pain, could no longer move his fingers or touch his hand let alone the pillow case it sat upon. After a couple days of letting the culture grow it was determined that Caleb had somehow contracted staph aureus also known as arthritic septis. Very dangerous infection. Yesterday they went in and washed his wrist out. The doctor said it was badly infected in his joints. Caleb will be here for a while then sent home on strong antibiotics, possibly with a pic line for continuous drip of antibiotics. We have no idea how long he will be laid up. Caleb has a part time job along with a small amount of disability. His hospital bills will be high along with his monthly bills, any amount of help would be grateful during this time. God is good and is a great provider, if you feel moved to help out we thank you from the bottom of our heart.
