Brayden's snow days were not as exciting as Carter and Luke's.
One morning while changing his diaper, I felt something wet and slimy...never a good feeling when changing a diaper.
A quick assessment and I realized it was not coming from his diaper at all. His incision on his hip was oozing. It was oozing yellow puss and irritated all over. A little clean up and I could see a hole in the incision were the puss was coming out. And it was really bothering him.
I called a friend, who in recent years became an expert on her daughter's many incisions and infections. She talked me through what to do (Brayden and her daughter also share the same ortho dr).
Things were looking better.
The next morning, things looked worse. So I called the doctor and we (we, as in, I had to take Carter and Luke with us because of canceled school, much to their chagrin) headed to the office.
It is starting to look better but will check in with the doctor later this week.
