Update On My Son

No better, no worse.

First round of antibiotics was a fail.  Since it has been over 5 years since his last round of antibiotics, this should have done the trick instantly.  Instead, the mass grew and got more painful.  We went back to the doctor today, and she took him off the first dose, started a second dose and added a powerful pain killer.  Meanwhile, he is still feverish, but not really hurting.  He can't walk on put any pressure on his leg and buttock area.

I want to trust this doctor.  She is a kind woman, and I know she would do nothing to hurt my boy.  But I am torn.  I kind of want to take him to the hospital.  It has been three days and he is not any better, and I hate watching my child suffer.  But if I take him to the hospital, I worry that all they are going to do is tell me to continue the medications, and send me home.  But what if this antibiotic isn't do anything, either?  What if he has MRSA and he is slowly growing septic?  Darn this hospital background right now!  My mind keeps going to things that "could" happen or "might" happen.
Just keep praying.  Please and thank you.
