At this point they still don't know what caused all the fluid and there was no sign of any infection - just a build up of fluid. Mom now has an open wound again about 2" x 2". Her surgeon is back from overseas and she will see him again on Friday - until them she is on strict bed rest and powerful antibiotics (they cost $136 per tablet and she has to take 14 of them!!!) A swab she had done yesterday showed some sort of bacteria - they don't know what it is and there was just a teeny tiny amount of it - but her surgeon doesn't want to take any risks and wants the wound all clear by time he closes it again.
Dog oh dog..... I was so happy when my Mom came home I started singing for her - I knew all that Tornado Testing Thursday singing would come in handy one day. We will try to check in now and again but I will busy looking after the Mom for the next few days...keeping her in bed and resting is going to be hard but I am just the dog for the job :)
