OK I lied
So I thought my last post would be my last post, but I was wrong. I was suppossed to leave via helicopter to go to work on the rig this morning. I am not at work due to the weather however. This blog is not about me though so I digress, Dawn went in to the doctor this morning to get her stiches out. Which she said went very well, she was worried about there being pain, she reported there was only some slight tugging. So that part of the visit went well, however the rest of the visit seems to have gone south from there. The infection Dawn had on her skin while clearing up in front of her incision, is not improving behind her ear and is looking to get worse. The doctor not entirly sure what to do as a treatment sent her down to see an infectious desease specialist. The treatment they have come up with is to install a PIC line (an iv that goes up into her chest) and set up an in home nurse to administer IV antibiotics twice a day for the term of the treatment. So she is currently still at the hospital, and Im in a hotel in Morgan city, LA. trying to set up someone to watch the kids. Today has not been a fun day for either of us I know.Please keep praying for Dawn to overcome this infection and continue her recovery. As I find out more ill keep everybody posted.
