Rough 9 Days
The past 9 days have been pretty rough but hopefully it will get better soon. On the 21 of April I noticed a red spot on my incision and it stung pretty bad so I went to the ER to get it checked out and I am glad that I did. It turned out I had a staph infection on my incision. Now after 5 days of IV antibiotics I am now on the mend and also have moved onto oral antibiotics. On top of all of that they did an ultrasound of my incision and 8it turned out that I had a pocket of fluid deep in my incision which I had removed on Tuesday via interventional radiology (means aspiration guided by ultrasound).I do not wish this procedure on my worst enemy because it hurs and leaves a huge nasty bruise which almost hurts worst that my incision. On a very sad note while all of this was going on my grandmother who I love dearly fell last Sunday the day after her and my grandfathers 70th Anniversary and she broke her hip. Unfortunately she did not survive the surgery to replace her hip and my heart broke as my mother called on April 26 to let me know that when they took her off of the ventilator she just didn't breathe. I miss her dearly but at least I know she is not suffering.
