Post-Op Day 23
Then I decided it was time for Drew to have another "bath." As I was carrying the tub full of warm soapy water to his bed I dropped the entire thing on the floor! Water went everywhere! At least we know the floor is nice and clean now.
Soon after that the team came in to do rounds. And the attending doctor had some interesting things to say. He said "we are in no way in control of that infection" and "nowhere near close to discharge" and "at least another week on antibiotics." Very encouraging. When I asked if it might be possible to transfer to our home hospital he said that the surgeons would probably not approve that with his infection the way it is, and there is a small chance they might want to open up the incision again, in which case they'd want us here.
My big Father's Day plans were to have our whole little family together and order pizza and have a little picnic outside. Since Ava is throwing up, we adjusted the plan and ate pizza with Drew's grandpas in the day room. Dan also got a special Father's Day key lime tart from the hospital. And one of the nurses (not ours) had the nerve to complain to me that she was working on Father's Day! I'm pretty sure she's not a father, I'm guessing her kids haven't been stuck in the hospital for close to a month, and I'm thinking she's being paid to be here so I was having trouble feeling sorry for her.
The immunologist did call yesterday and say she would come by today. I am very anxious to have her see Drew's infection and get her opinion on how things are being done here. So for the rest of the day we are waiting to see her and waiting for the play room to open and just hanging out.
Happy Father's Day to all the dads and grandpas out there. We love you!
