Update on My Wife's Health

Wednesday, November 06, 2013

Because several of you asked about my wife, I thought I would give an update.

She is back in the hospital again with a serious case of Peritonitis (internal infection). It is the same antibiotic-resistant strain that she had just 5 weeks ago when she spent two weeks in the hospital. They now think that the internal infection from last time never fully resolved. They believe two things caused the reoccurrence Ė (1) the abdominal catheter for her dialysis must have a film of the bacteria on it and (2) her gall bladder appears to be infected.

Some time on Friday they plan to surgically remove both the abdominal catheter and her gall bladder. She will then have no dialysis until Monday or Tuesday when they plan to do another surgery to insert a new abdominal catheter. They normally wait for several months to put a new catheter in, but they donít want to wait this time because her blood pressure is way too low for her to do the alternative type of dialysis - hemodialysis (the blood dialysis).

Iím not too worried about the procedure itself, but the anesthesia will be risky because of her very low blood pressure (50 over 29 once today). We donít have a lot of options, though, as we have to clear this dangerous infection.

Iíll let you know how it goes. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers. Thanks.

    I'm so sorry to hear that your wife is back in the hospital, and with the infection again. I pray the Lord will touch her body and give it strength for the surgery and guide the hands of the surgeon and that she will recover and heal from the infection and be home soon. Lot's on your plate Bill, I hope you can keep up your fitness so you can be strong for yourself and her. She is blessed to have you.
