Well my dear husband is out of ICU and hopefully for the last time. They have identified the infection but now they have to determine where it came from and where it is in his body. Since he had a new valve put in his heart Nov 2015 and an aorta resection, this is the first place they will check out. It seems when your body has foreign parts in it, it is also a good place for infection to start. If that turns out negative then they do another scan. He drinks a concoction 3 days before the scan and apparently this stuff that he drinks goes to areas of infection. They are also giving him more blood because his hemoglobin is looking low. This doesn't surprise me because he's had to have blood transfusions over that past several years several times.
He's really in good spirits considering everything that they have done to him. Me, I'd be climbing the walls. I want to thank everyone who has been saying prayers for him. I hope to answer all your emails soon but time seems to get away from me.
Peyton and John got back from visiting John's family in Texas last nite and came into the hospital today. That perked hubby right up.....seeing them and that Little John. He always has a smile for you.
Again, thank you and I hope for a good week ahead.
