Dear me but what a whirl wind week this has ended up being. Rather than getting better, Jack got worse!By Wednesday evening he was burning hot, had chills and his hand and arm were swollen and red. I was too ill with a migrane to take him to the hospital then and until next week, we have no phone either or anyone to call to take him. The next morning after a very bad night and his morning blood sugar at 253, I took him to the er. We ended up being there from eleven in the morning until six that evening and neither if us had had anything to eat since the day before. Makes one cranky! They gave him iv antibiotics and sent him home with oral medicine and we had to return yesterday for a recheck and two more does of iv antibiotics. He has cellulitis. We have instructions to return if things are not better or get worse and they will do more iv antibiotics. However, his fever broke last night and the redness is easing. This is the swelling of his hand to start.
