July 17, 2009. Why Haven’t I Posted in the Last Few Weeks?
A common everyday bacteria that we all have in our intestinal tract got into my chest cavity causing a large abscess to form on my liver. Two trips to the ER didn’t identify the problem. A new primary physician did diagnose it correctly and had me admitted to the hospital. A medical procedure to drain the abscesses went awry, an artery was punctured causing another procedure to clamp off and cauterize the artery. Released from the hospital on day six with a drain from the chest cavity and a medical fanny pack pump that injected antibiotics one hour each day and required recharging every three days. After a slow recovery I’m back to near normal.
