We are Home

Wesley got out of the hospital last Thrusday. He ended up having Staff infection and some kind of other infection that he seems to not remember the name. The infection had started spreading into his brain and we caught it early. We were lucky again!! Go back to 2008, this has happen before, but even worse that time. He is on a bunch of different medication. The doctors say rest and time will help. So far it is Sunday and he is not much better. He is better then in the hospital, but not by any means well. I know with time he will get better.
Basically for what ever reason he got an infection around the cut from his last surgery on September 1st. I am not going to spend much time trying to figure out why and the world this happen, it just did. He had a metal plate that was inserted to cover the shunt hole from where it was taken out. The doctor removed the plate and said he would be alright with it. It was covered in infection.
We can only hope this is the end of it.

The kids did really well while we were gone. I love their schools and teachers, it makes me feel so much better to know that they are in good hands.
Blake made A's on his Brenchmark tests, so I told him we would do something special for him. He wanted a Hamster and that is what he got. The new member in our family is Taz :)

This is going to be a busy week for us, all kinds of Halloween events.
I have got to get caught up at work this week too.
Wanted everyone to know we are back home and Wesley is off work and I am making sure he rests and takes his medication.
Thanks so much to everyone for your prayers.

My husband also has Chiari. He had surgery in 2005 and they put in a duraplast (patch thing?). In 2009, he got two nasty lumps on the back of his head. We went to the ER and they did immediate surgery because it was a staph infection. They cleaned out the infection and removed the patch. After 4 years, it was covered in infection. I'm praying for you all - I know how hard it is.
