Hospital...

 I have been quoted as saying that I cannot get enough of Hospital dramas... on the television and in real life. But this time I have had enough! Hubby has been in hospital with a skin infection at the base of his spine. Initially diagnosed as a Pilonidal Sinus (PS), but not your typical PS infection.
 He was operated on the first time last week, to excise, drain and washout the infection. Sent home in my care to pack the wound twice a day, oral antibiotics and analgesia to take. But, the next day he became febrile, temperature hitting 39 degrees celsius. So off to Emergency Dept at the hospital we went. Today he had a second operation to do the same thing, but this time there was quite a large amount of infection to clear. He is on double antibiotics and regular analgesia and has a seaweed pack insitu. We hope this is the end of his trips to theater now. Time to heal!

Febrile is a word I need to look up. I have noted that you, with insider knowledge, took A to emergency.

I hope he is ok soon.

Gah. Sorry Andrew and all readers of my blog. I am usually better at remembering to speak and write in lamen terms :( I feelmlike I have worked a few days in a row non stop!
Hubby seems to be slowly improving. He is starting to get cheeky again too. IV antibiotics are ongoing whilst he is an inpatient. Regular dressings too. The surgeon said he removed and washed out quite a bit of infection in the second round on the operating table. fingers crossed there

Hospital dramas are only good when no one you love is involved. Hope he heals quickly.

Just got home, Cazzie, and checking my blogger friends. So sorry to hear of your hubbies travails. It's 5 days since you wrote this and I sure hope the meds are doing the job.
