Tuesday, March 12, 2013

Well, I had a interesting day today. I developed an abscess on Sunday night, so very painful, then I woke at about 1 or 2 am Monday morning and felt like I had been kicked by a horse in my ribs. I finally had a appointment today due to a public holiday yesterday. It has been lanced then I had to go up the hospital for IV antibiotics, this was a total of 3 hours. After the small operation the pain in the chest has now gone.


Abscesses are caused by a infection, I know I have been a bit off for the last couple of weeks, not wanting to eat and so on but I didn't give an infection a thought. Yet thinking about diffeent things that has been happening I should have guessed. Hindsight is such a wonderful thing. LOL. I recken I have had this infection for about 2 weeks. I start oral antibiotics tomorrow.

Update about Colin, they removed the gallstone with a tube (somehow) but now they have found that he has more gallstones so he may be going back into theatre tomorrow to remove his gall bladder.

I will let you know tomorrow. I am off to bed.

cheers
Wendy

HI everyone,

I have heard from Susie, Colin is still very weak as he left the infection too long. Susie has spoken of the problems she has with Colin and he had it in his head not to go to hospital as he does not want to die there. This has made the present situation so much worse. Susie said that Colin has many tubes in and out of him. He is still in intensive care and will stay there for a while longer.

Susie has told me to thank everyone for their good wishes, prayers as so on and that she and her family does appreciate them. Keep them coming. Susie will need your positive vibes/prayers and love for a few days yet.

When I have any more news I will let you know.

Colin made it through the surgery, late this afternoon. I will let you know when I get any updates from Susie. (SUSIEPH1). Susie has touched the hearts of so many people and friends that she has on here, and yet even when Colin was very unwell she still thought about letting everyone know.
What an incredible woman.

cheers

good morning, Susie (Susieph1) asked me to let you all know that her beautiful husband is in hospital in Melbourne, very sick. He goes in for a operation at 12 noon today for a operation on his gallbladder. He has a blockage in the gallbladder which has cause a major infection and he is now on 3 different antibiotics. They did nearly loss Colin a few nights ago which is why he is now in Melbourne. Susie and her daughter has flown to Melbourne this morning to be with Colin.

As I don't know all of Susie's Sparkfriends I thought I would blog here and hopefully this will reach many of her friends.

Please send some prayers and positive vibes for Colin and Susie in their hour/s of need. They do need our love. I will let you know when I hear any updates.


On the positive side I have been a member of Sparks for 900 incredible days. As you all know as I have said I have made so many improvements in my life, that I really cannot list them anymore.

I have changed so much for the better. I would also say that I make healthy choices 95% of the time now but even the last 5% is not really as naughty as they were previous of joining Sparks.

Here's to the next 900 days LOL

cheers
Wendy
