There is a family that is part of the ACH family here that is displaced from High River. B and Sawyer were next door neighbours in PICU when they were tiny so I have spent many a day seeing their familiar faces. They have 5 kiddos and their little one had lived here at the hospital for 568 days (yes, almost 2 years). They JUST got to take him home this week to High River only to be evacuated by boat only a few short days later. They are back here in ACH so he can be properly cared for (he's on a ventilator) but they are now displaced with 5 children and only the clothes/toys with them. I asked how we (I) could help today and she said they are okay right now with clothes and they have a place to stay but they are short on toys and entertainment for the kids. If anyone has any ideas or electronics that they would like to donate please let me know! Here is their story...CLICK HERE and then click on Sawyer's Story.

legs, he's a popular guy!
The only 'odd' thing of the day today (with B that is) is that he had some fluid coming out of his left ear. I saw some wax on his ear lobe and rubbed it only to find it was wet. There isn't too much to worry about, it was clear fluid. The Resident came up to take a look and she said she can't really see if there is a hole in his membrane or not but it could be the source of a fluid leak. He's not got any swelling or pus in the ear so that's a very good sign. He doesn't have a tube in that left ear drum anymore and has had fluid behind it for quite some time now so I wouldn't be surprised if it has a leak now. He is also on two antibiotics that he takes daily for other things so it could just be keeping the infection at bay enough to not get much worse. The only other thing is that he's been running a low grade fever on and off but again, it's not all the time. It is simply another 'wait and see'.
