Post-Surgery #2

The surgery to clear out the infection went very well. It was not as widespread and deep as first thought so the doctors did not have to remove much tissue. Scott is back in the PICU and resting well. Depending on what comes back from the culture tests, it may be possible to limit the IV antibiotics to 2 weeks instead of 6. He will need a few more days of recovery before they are able to remove his breathing tubes and move him to the NICU. Hopefully there won't be any more major setbacks. Phil

Hi guys...I'm sure the hour-by-hour progress has been difficult, but sending vibes your way that soon this will be remembered by all as a blur, and that Scotty will often be heard to joke "I dont remember ANYTHING ...except Nurse Anna"

Thinking good thoughts,

Dave
