Stormont Vail Hospital

25 Nov

I’m set up for my 3rd night staying with my daughter at the hospital.  She came in during the middle of the night Thursday with a fever and an infection in her incision from the removal of a melanoma last Monday.  She has a staph infection and they had to lance open the incision and it will have to be packed twice a day for awhile.  She is here until Tuesday as of now.  She is feeling better but there are all sorts of precautions that go along with these infections.

Her husband will be having knee surgery we hope this week, so as you can tell lots going on.  Their friends have really helped a lot with food, cleaning, laundry and helping with the kids.  Justin has injured both knees so he is laid up but as of now he is able to use a walker and he has all 3 kids with him.  His family has been great helping him out there.

That’s it for now.

    Poor Billie! That sounds awful!!! What is wrong with hospitals now days. I would be afraid to get sick and have to go to one and come away with something worse than I had to begin with!!! Crazy times!

    Hi J, I’m so sorry that you have so much going on. Please give my thoughts and prayers to Billie and family. It’s really hard to deal with so much stress, but you really do need to take care of yourself first. I’m thinking of you, my good friend, and hope things get so much better so fast.

    Love, Margie
