Update on Button....and FEVER!!!


OK, it figures doesnt it. Today Tucker decides to have a fever. We went to Mercy yesterday, saw wound care about the button, did a little rearrangement of the treatment to the skin. They are very concerned that we will not have good enough skin to keep the stitches in and it will be a waste. WE have to have a closed site though to go to Boston. There are so many factors involved here.........my guess is surgery Thursday will not happen. Tuck has a cough, a fever today and the site of the Mickey is GROSS!!!! Today it is leaking like no other, the cough has pulled whatever healing we had done apart it seems. I have changed his dressing 3 times already, when a few days last week we didnt have to change it but once a day. SOOOOO, here we go......back on Tucker TIME!!!

Hope he's feeling better soon. It's the crazy weather and all. And I hope the button heals quickly.
