A List Maker's Life: Two Unexpected Frustrations

Two Unexpected Frustrations

Our sweet Gabe has had quite a go of it this week.  After his surgery Gabe required some "big gun" antibiotics to fight off possible infection.  The meds have given him some obnoxious tummy trouble and one miserable rash from his incision, down his bum, and to his knees.  Ick! 

~The silver lining: Gabe is aware - can feel - the sting of the rash.

The antibiotics have proven to be necessary as the microbiologists and infectious disease specialist have determined that our babe also has MRSA - which is a hospital infection that is resistant to most treatment.  At this point Gabe is in complete isolation.  This is a really difficult transition. 

~The silver lining: Gabe finally scored his own private room.

What a way to celebrate your two week birthday little mister!

  4. 2 weeks! Wow! What a little snuggler. Praying that his infection clears soon. Thankful that he and you get privacy but wish it didn't come under these circumstances. Praying for you all.

  6. Katie, I'm so sorry to hear about Gabe's latest setback. Praying that God will heal Gabe completely. Ephesians 3:20. May you find rest in the knowledge that God goes before you each step of the way. Love and prayers to all of you.

  10. Oh Katie, I wish you could just bring us the news that everything is better and better - all ups with no downs. I pray for your family but especially for your sweet Gabe - I wonder what great things God is preparing him for that he has to start at this very early age?
    He is so beautiful, I love to see the pictures. I don't care what the doctors say, that child is perfect.
