Hey all thanks so much for all your sweet comments and keeping him in your prayers. It’s been SO hard. Him and I came to Sacred Heart Tuesday at around 11 30pm and we’re still here. His surgery was yesterday.
Turns out he had a really bad abcess from MRSA- I am guessing it involved a lymph?
He’s had abcesses before but never have they been this bad or as rapid growing. 🙁
They have sedated him twice- once for his CAT scan and another to do a “needle stick” puncture… that didn’t work b/c none of the drainage came out- he had fevers non-stop of 103+….
FINALLY the Doc did surgery- he went under general anesthesia, had a breathing tube placed and had the lump opened. His neck is still a little swollen but ever since then he has felt and LOOKS a looooot better. He does have some stitches and a drainage tube coming out of his neck. We still have some occasional bad fevers- scary. Plus pain, he hates it here, I hate to see him like this, I wish we could go home.
The doc said he will be here for at least 2 more days IF he can go through 24 hrs without fever. SOO.. crossing my fingers.
Thank God Joe came here from Jax on Wed night. I couldn’t it by myself anymore.
He will have to leave Sunday, dunno what time.
anyway gotta go.
