    A Scary Week...

    A Scary Week...
    I just wanted to get a post out there about my wife Pat. She is in the hospital and how she got there is kind of strange.

    Last Wednesday Pat told me she had a kind of a large pimple on her abdomen but it did not have a head. Thursday it was a bit bigger but still no head, but it was getting tender. By Saturday it was more tender, but she did not want to go to the doctor. Sunday the pain was more than she could stand.

    By 4:00 PM Sunday a surgical team was called and Pat went in for emergency surgery. They opened a 10x14cm wound and removed infection and tissue. She was septic but not yet in shock. She is doing the best she has today. Her sugar and BP are finally in line and the wound, after 3 subsequent procedures, is doing well. She will be in the hospital until they can change the dressing without being fully sedated. That could be a week or so more.
    It was a bit scary for a few days and we still have a ways to go to get Pat home and months to healing.

    I wanted to post this because the doctor told us this kind of infection is easy to get. It could be as simple as an ingrown hair. We learned that we need to pay much closer attention. The speed with which it grew from Saturday to Sunday was shocking and the impact on Pat's systems was frightening. Today she is looking the best she has in a week.

    WOW! That was a VERY scary ordeal for sure, Dan. And you're right in that it was a strange situation. Thanks for sharing because it could happen to any of us or our loved ones.

    Please tell Pat I'm glad she is healing...albeit slowly. How are you holding up? No doubt it's been stressful for you. Take care, Dan.
