Orren in Children's Hospital
(Hold me GrandMaMa!)
Thank you all for your concern and prayers. You are such a special part of our lives. Here is how this breaks down.
Tuesday Orren sustained a spider bite that enabled M R S A staph to enter and infect his little body. It was so fast that they started marking the red bands with ball point pen and the time. We were then transported from Children's South to Children's Main by ambulance and admitted.
During the night that night about 2:00 AM they moved all of the patients and parents into the hallway because of the tornado. FUN TIMES!
He had surgery this morning and they removed almost 3 tablespoons of fluid "infection" from the place on his tummy. After his surgery he was back to himself.
We are so thankful my parents were able to get here this morning before he went into surgery. They walked up as the transport team loaded him on the stretcher. Orren grabbed his GrandMaMa and wrapped both arms around her neck so tight!

Orren did so well that he was allowed to come home just a bit ago. It was somewhat tricky to maneuver the rain, sleet and snow but we are home!
He will remain on antibiotics for the next 8 days, he has to go back in about a week to have the little drain removed.
We are so relieved and exhausted. I will post more details tomorrow, and more pictures

Thanks again to all of you for your prayers and love!
