On Saturday night Mom was starting to feel some pain in her left side and by Sunday a red area of infection could clearly be seen. Dad rang Mom's doctor who thankfully is always there for her no matter what day or time and explained what he was seeing. The doctor rang a prescription for antibiotics through straight a way and dad went and got them. He has strict instructions to bring Mom to the surgery at 8.00 am Monday morning. The infection had turned into an abscess but thankfully it is BELOW where she just had surgery and touch wood - it doesn't look like the mesh is involved. The doctor thinks one the drains Mom had caused the infection and subsequent abscess. He drained the abscess and put tape in it to keep in it draining and we have all fingers, toes and paws crossed that the infection doesn't spread any further. Both Mom and Dad were so scared at the thought of having this go wrong again and we were worried too - we have been staying by Mom's side all day staying to scare any bad 'things' away.
