how cool is that?

I called CHOP first thing this morning, as promised. I spoke with a nurse and she said she would get a message to Dr. K, and either she or he would call me back. I was so happy to talk to Dr. K personally this evening, and the first thing he said to me was, "I'm looking at the picture of Lucas's ear on your blog post right now, and I can see that..."

How cool is that?

He was able to "diagnose" over the phone because of my blog post! He changed Lucas's antibiotic dosage slightly, and gave me some further instructions. He wants to see Lucas in 3 weeks, and then we'll decide what to do from there. He said that it's "very likely" that the cyst has returned, and it may need to be removed again. Ugh.

The site actually looks better than it did yesterday. The swelling has really decreased, and you can see a little hole now too.

If timing is right tomorrow, we may see Dr. K. Or maybe he'll just look at this image again. :)
