To the ER

by on May 15, 2009

Last night the surgery site looked infected-goopy white discharge and oozing, pain, swelling, & redness. I drained and cleaned the wound-It was really gross.

This morning was her Cyberknife CT so I forgot about the infection until this afternoon. After a whole lot of calls and unspeakable effort, I finally spoke with our Neurosurgeon.

I described the wound site in detail and he sent us to the ER. He was concerned about the infection and didn’t want to take any chances. He said she’ll likely be admitted for a couple days of IV antibiotics.

He advised that we should go to Mission Hospital’s ER because they were better equipped for our needs.

We arrived here at 7:15 pm and talked with a triage nurse. She took our medical history and we returned to the waiting room. She said there wasn’t any beds.

It’s now 9:15 pm and we’re still waiting. Satomi is doing fine. She’s not uncomfortable so we’re being patient.

I’ll let you all know what happens.
