Last night I was driving back from La Crosse WI from class and Bailey wanted to talk with me on the phone. He was hurting and wanted to share with me where he was hurting and how he was hurting. I was so impressed on how he was going through words to tell me where, when, how and why he was hurting. He told me the bone on his jaw was hurting.
I was woken today by his eyes and his eyes only. He just laid next to me, looking into my eyes until I woke up. At first I thought it was a little weird, but once I woke up and figured out who was really 2 inches away from my eyes, well I totally understood. Bailey told me his jaw hurt again and I checked it out. His entire right side of his face is swollen and we took him in today. They have placed him on antibiotics along with pain medication. The doctor we saw is not sure of what is going on with his mouth and cheek, but she said that we needed to make an appointment with our team in the Cities as soon as we can. She also has ordered a CT scan for Bailey which is set for tomorrow, Thursday at 7:00 a.m. What worries me the most is this is happening on the side where the blood vein was weaved under the skin to the top of the bone graph. My mind has just gone from one place to another on the possibilities, and yet Bailey's mind has even gone from one bad thing to another. He asked if he was going to have to have another surgery for this. I told him we didn't know and that it was important for us to find out what was wrong first. So I am just waiting to hear from our doctor and how he would like us to proceed after we have the CT scan done tomorrow. until then, I am praying for nothing major.....
