I've been waiting for a definitive answer concerning hubby's infection. It appears that there isn't one. On blood cultures from the ER, either Staph or Strep showed up. Can't remember which one as my poor ol' brain is muddled right now. Nothing else has showed up and infection seems to be gone with the broad spectrum antibiotcs. He is out of ICU. Still chokes on water. And he's not being given much water through his tube, either, but still getting Saline, antibiotics, & Neupogen through IV. WBC was up to 3.2 yesterday.
He still can't stand alone & has no strength. Voice is back partially, but very weak, like laryngitis. I don't know what the plan is yet for recovery, but am going to the hospital soon to see if I can catch a doctor. They are as elusive as the big fish in the lake.
Talk to ya'll soon.
