Hospital Stay

June 2nd, 2007

We just got home from a week long hospital stay. Master has a severe
infection on His back that required minor surgery which is why we
haven't been around. He went to the emergency room on Sunday and they
lanced and drained the site. We were supposed to return on Tuesday to
have the packing removed. Unfortunately, we returned on much more
upsetting circumstances. The infection was getting worse, not better.



Hello everyone 🙂


This entry has to be short and sweet as I've got a few chores that need tending.


We just got home from a week long hospital stay. Master has a severe infection on His back that required minor surgery which is why we haven't been around. He went to the emergency room on Sunday and they lanced and drained the site. We were supposed to return on Tuesday to have the packing removed. Unfortunately, we returned on much more upsetting circumstances. The infection was getting worse, not better.


They had Him evaluated by a surgeon and it was decided that they should put Him on IV antibiotics in an attempt to kill the infection without surgery. However, the infection continued to get worse and surgery was required. He now has a hole about four inches long and three to four inches deep in His back.


I'm hoping to get an actual entry up in the next day or so but, along with the visiting nurse, most of my attention, while I'm not catching up at work – bleh, will be going to taking care of Him.


They're trying to get His insurance to approve something called a wound vac that will accelerate the healing process by at least three weeks. If it's denied, we're looking at a long and painful road for Him. *fingers crossed*
