Wow...that looks like a good supper right there.
And what a handsome feller your grandson is.
I love fishing and getting out in nature is exactly the right prescription for all this drama we are enduring right now!
Well, heard from Cookie & her husband: heading back to surgery (not sure if they are staying w/ present care provider) to remove all parts, articulated spacer for 3 months (same as I did w/staff infection) & then another new set of parts. She had some questions, tried to answer to the best of my ability. We will be in communication as they went in to see her surgeon before we were done
Each time I read about Cookie I think that it would be reassuring to personally know someone (you) who’s experienced the same and made it through to the other side.
I hope she takes comfort in that and it gives her hope. Prayers all goes well this time.
Have a nice weekend! @SCaprae
A week ago today, Cookie went into surgery, they determined she was too weak & malnourished to withstand removal, placement of articulated spacer. Opted to flush, put in antibiotic beads along w/ suction on the wound.
About to go on a “rant” here. How can/ how dare an educated care team be so darn disinterested/careless about aftercare allowing a staff infection to progress this far.
Will be seeing her husband tonight after work.
Cookie’s situation sounds more dire with each update. Her story is so sad. I’m sure it’s difficult to watch your friend go through this having experienced the trials of infection yourself. Hopefully given the latest she and her husband consider your earlier suggestion?
Hello! I hope your hip continues to do well and you’re having a good Summer so far, even though it doesn’t officially begin for another three days. How is your friend doing? I know this weighs on your mind and fully understand since you’ve been there yourself.
Best wishes for a peaceful afternoon and evening. @SCaprae
Ugh...the poor dear woman. This situation is so very sad. The best news is she’s going to Mayo. Prayers for her strength and healing.
I‘m sure this is difficult for you to witness. I hope you’re able to have a relaxing holiday weekend. Happy 4th to you! @SCaprae
