Brody has scars on his arms from his surgeries.
At one point over the summer, the scar got infected, and infection puss built up around it, until it drained. It was fairly disgusting but Jeremy and I were glad that it drained. Draining infections will soon no longer be infections.
The other day, I was changing Brody's diaper.
I saw some discharge on one of his scars on the under part of his right forearm. I freaked out, because I hadn't noticed any redness or infection. I grabbed his arm, and gasped.
I really did. I gasped. I couldn't believe he had another infection, so long after surgery. I started calculating which doctor I would call and whether I should just start him on the antibiotics I have in his room, how this could have happened. Was it a leftover stitch? Something worse?
Then, I touched it. To see if there would be more drainage.
At which point I realized it was snot.
