Re: To Queeny and her family


Awesome news, Queeny! I'm sure he's preferring this feeling over the headaches and bad head pain, so I imagine he'll behave and do what the docs tell him.

I hope you can get some rest now, and relax a bit, knowing that he's OK. emoticon

Re: To Queeny and her family


being in your own bed sure makes one heck of a difference! When DH had both of his cancer surgeries, and I stayed at the hospital with [sign in to see URL] my! First one, I slept in the recliner every night! At least the second one, I had a chair that made into an actual [sign in to see URL] was pretty comfy, considering! [sign in to see URL] like getting back to my own bed!!!

Re: To Queeny and her family


Had a bit of a scare yesterday...
I posted the whole story on my site:

Now for some slightly down news....
I had a call from my son, about an hour ago and he said his incision was oozing/weeping. Not green or infected looking, but watery. Not done that since he left the hospital. So he calls his neurosurgeon's office to see what to do. It's closed, "Message said: he's on a weeks vacation"!

So he calls me, I tell him to go to our URGENT CARE, off they go (he's STILL not supposed to be riding in a car!)....they won't touch him, not with that surgery. SO, they go to the real hospital, to see if he can get in to see our Family [sign in to see URL]'s not qualified to see him about [sign in to see URL], they call me back and I [sign in to see URL] it, go downstairs and walk into the emergency room! More expensive, but they should have someone there who can at least look at it! I hope that they do not have to drive BACK to El Paso, TX (42 miles one way) to the hospital where they did the [sign in to see URL] have a special unit for just that and there are other neurosurgeons there. Of course he's all upset, blood pressure is probably thru the [sign in to see URL] did say he had a "sort of bad" night last night. Did not sleep as well as he has been....
[sign in to see URL] I SIT! Pissing and moaning to you all. Sorry...

THEN I POSTED THIS TODAY>>>>>>>>>>>

Okay, here is what happened Thursday with the ER run...
1. NO one but his neurosurgeon or an emergency room surgeon can even look at that wound.
Legal [sign in to see URL] someone else screws up neurosurgeon's work, he could sue them.
Would have been freaking NICE to know that little fact!
But that is why the Urgent Care or family Doctor were not even allowed to look at him!

2. When they finally got to the Emergency room, the first triage doc almost had a heart attack, as he saw the scar, clear liquid coming out and thought the surgery had opened his skull (most brain surgeries, do crack the skull open) and he thought the liquid might be cerebral fluid. (That could have killed him in short order!) So Doc started to freak a bit, called for gurney, and then asked a couple important questions. As soon as Chris said they did NOT crack his skull [sign in to see URL] things relaxed a bit. And he was allowed to walk back to one of the rooms.
3. The ER Doc in charge, asked a bunch of questions, poked and prodded the wound (Chris it hurt like hell, as he was pushing it all over)...and a ton of clear liquid came out. They ran a test on the liquid and found out it was just water.
4. They then found that the very top suture (stitch) was not completely closed tightly. [sign in to see URL] very first shower he took, water actually got down in there. Then is started to 'scab' over. When the kids decided to go get some lunch, son tried to hide his screwed up hair with his cowboy hat. That little thing set this all in motion. It knocked the scab off, and squished his head just enough to squeeze out some fluid.
5. His girlfriend has to use clean gauze pads, to gently push on it all over a few times a day, and Son is not allowed to wash his HEAD (luckily they have a hand held shower head, so he can wash, just not his head) until his neurosurgeon removes the stitches next Thursday.
In a way it's a good thing it [sign in to see URL] doc said in a few days that water would start to get infected.
[sign in to see URL] was why he had a bad nights sleep the night [sign in to see URL] was water under the skin behind his wound, pressing against the stitches and nerves in that area....
OYE!!! I hope my freaking heart can take this.. emoticon

 emoticon Wowzers. My first thought was cerebral fluid too - I hadn't realized there was no entering the skull. Sheesh, WHAT A FREAKIN NIGHTMARE! Poor Mama, poor Chris. What a mess. Soooo glad it turned out to be as benign as it was. Whew.

Thank the Goddess! emoticon
But you would have thought that after his surgery, they would have really checked those stitches and warned him about getting it 'soaking' [sign in to see URL] he said, it felt so good after a week in the hospital to just stand under hot running water..... emoticon

Glad they found that out this way, rather than having the scar get infect. Phew!

Re: To Queeny and her family


wow! How scary for everyone involved! Poor [sign in to see URL] Mom & [sign in to see URL] G/[sign in to see URL] even those doctors. I'm so glad it's nothing more than just [sign in to see URL] WOW! That would have terrified me, too.

Hope he can manage to keep things calm till his stitches are removed. It's odd that they didn't tell him not to get his stitches [sign in to see URL]'s usual post-surgery protocol! Every surgery I've ever had, I was told NOT to get my stitches [sign in to see URL]'t matter what the surgery was for. Just really glad he's OK!
