Teagan's Wound

This is Teagan's wound. It's healing well. Sorry that the picture sucks!

Paper Route

On the days I work Teagan does the paper route with her daddy. They have to get up very early so they are both pretty tired. I came downstairs after my nap one sunday and they were both a sleep on the couch. It was so cute that I had to snap a picture!

Nothing Yet...

We're still waiting to hear about the test results for Teagan's infection. Nothing is growing in the dish so far that looks positive for TB, so that's WONDERFUL!!!! And the incision is healing really well, it is a little green so I have to do a dakins rinse, which is really just bleach water, but it doesn't sting and she doesn't mind it. So hopefully in another week this will all be behind us!

Everything else is the same as usual. We haven't even celebrated our 3year anniversary, we've been so busy with everything else! But as of the 25th of March, we've been married 3 years! Yeah us!!!

So Teagan's doctor called yesterday to tell me that Teagan's culture from her sore came back and it has some kind of bacteria in it that is the same as the bacteria in tuberculosis. So they are sending it to have more cultures to see if it indeed is Tuberculosis. If it is we will be going to an infectious disease doctor...we wont know for two weeks. Everybody pray for her please.

On a more cheerful note, Adam passed his Air Traffic Control SAT test with 82%!!!! Yeah Adam!!! Just think what he would have gotten if he had studied! Now he will have an interview at the end of the month to see if he is going to Oklahoma City to start training for ATC! I'm so proud of him! We also had our 3rd anniversary, but with everything going on we haven't celebrated it yet.

Adam and I joined gold's gym. I want to take spin classes and Adam wants to lift weights again so we are starting to workout, wish us luck...we're gonna need it!

More Teagan pictures

These are more pictures of Teagan's hospital stay.

Teagan goes under the knife!

March 19th Teagan woke up from her nap with a fever, I changed her diaper and noticed a golf ball sized lump on her right groin area. I felt it and noticed that it caused her pain so we went to the instacare and they thought it was probably a bug bite that got infected. She took an antibiotic and we waited. Easter rolled around and she was still puffy and in pain so we went back to the instacare and they ran labs. The labs came back showing that her body was putting up a good defense to the infection. April 2 I made an appointment with her Doctor, because the lump was still there. He felt it and decided that we should call a surgeon. Blah, blah, blah, Teagan went to see a wonderful surgeon who saw her that very same day, he decided it was an infected lymph node and that she needed to have it drained. She went to surgery the next morning. I was nervous because Adam couldn't be there with us, he had to fly to California. But we had our good friend Kathy, Grandma Korrie, Aunt Alison, and Haiden to help us through! We arrived at 6:30 in the morning and she was put out and intubated. She did really well in surgery, but because the incision was so close to the femoral artery we had to stay the night in the hospital. Which meant the she had to ride in the ambulance to the 400E campus where the pediatric unit is. Now she has a 1 inch by 1.5 cm incision in her right groin area that they left open so the infection could drain and be treated. So Adam and I have to hold her down and change the bandage everyday. Right now we are packing the wound with mesalt, a salt impregnated gauze to draw out the infection. That about sums up our last 3 weeks. I'll post about Easter next time.
