Day + 169: Bump Update
It's day +169 and I thought I'd just post a quick update on the bumps on Max's legs because I figure I have some of you worried like I was. They are greatly improved, thank God! Our Nurse Practitioner, Paula, called yesterday too and so far all of the cultures have shown nothing "life threatening" as she put it. In other words, so far no serious bacteria, viruses or fungi have grown in the lab. Phew!!! Another HUGE sigh of relief. We will still await final results of the tests but at the moment, we are relaxing a bit. We still all feel that it was likely Impetigo as the oral and ointment antibiotics seem to be clearing it up and Paula reminded me that they saw the tell-tale red rings around the bumps, indicating some kind of bacterial infection. But at least at this point it seems to be clearing up nicely and we seem to be getting it under control. Phew, phew, phew.
We are enjoying the absolutely beautiful fall weather here in Cincinnati with our little pup. Have a big day planned of walking in the Nature Center with Grandpa Papi at lunchtime! Of course, we'll be keeping those little legs of Maxers covered up with pants and bug spray to try to avoid any more drama!
Peace and love,
Kristi (and Matt, Max, Alex, Ellee and Spud)
