Good morning, Team Naaman. If anyone did not yet hear, Naaman had to be admitted yesterday to start IV antibiotics and get more disciplines checking out that infected finger. He’s been there two days, and hoping for discharge today. The great news is that the team feels it is staph or strep that got under the nail and caused infection. He is fever-free and both fingers are looking better. Derm and Infectious Disease are happy with how he’ healing with the antibiotics.
On a side note, this is his first admission since he has been potty trained. He uses the urinal or potty like a big boy, even with IV fluid hooked up! I’m impressed.
