3 weeks ago hubby got a shot in his behind, within a couple of days it was very sore, red, inflamed and hot.
He went to the dr on Monday Feb 18th, she gave him a shot of antibiotics and a script for antibiotics. She drew a big circle around it and told us to watch it and if it got any bigger to come back the next day. we knew Tuesday am it was not looking good, so called the Dr and told her we were coming in. Unfortunately it was school break so it was the whole family :) It was time for IV antibiotics :(
|admitted into the hospital!|
|started the IV antibiotics!|
|blood cultures to ck for infections (Dan asked the nurse if he could have a nip )|
|The next day I had to work so Danny came with me while Grammy watched the girls|
|hanging around visiting|
|kids are thinking about what is going on, each day it got harder :(|
|Gerri had a hard time with it all, it took days for her to go near dan :(|
|We made get well cards!|
|Then I had to bring them into work, yes, they worked!! :)|
they loved it!
|daddy loved his cards!!|
|yes, this is a dialysis machine!|
|I just can't put into words what it is like to watch your best friend go through something like this!|
my strong loving husband broke down and my heart broke!
|Danny finally sat on his knee and cried :(|
|both doing work :)|
|the kids got to make pretzels with auntie!|
|they made crafts!|
|Danny finished his pine derby car|
After a week the kids started school again and it made things easier to coordinate.
Unfortunately as I was leaving the hospital from our "date" hubby called to say that he had just been diagnosed with C-diff!! All I could think of was what if I got it! what would we do! what would the kids do! why did no one say anything to him or me when they saw us?? I rushed home, took a shower and washed all my clothes and scrubbed. argh! I was so over this whole thing!! the worst part was telling the kids that they could not visit for a couple of days :(
|finally able to visit!!! :)|
|playing war :)|
I learned a couple of very important things!
I love hubby :)
the kids love hubby :)
it is awesome being near family again!
life is too short and can change SO quickly!
I do NOT want to be a single parent!!
hubby actually had a fever yesterday and we had to take him back in, bad news
but turns out his counts are doing good, none of the cultures have come back with anything, and he is scheduled to have his cath taken out tomorrow and he is currently not needing any dialysis!! good news!
please pray for his healing, this has hit us all so very hard :(
