Hubby had his CT scan yesterday. Just got the results. It is diverticulitis. We thought it couldn't be that because he had no fever, but, no sac of infection has formed yet in the pocket, so that is good news I guess.
Hubby will start Cipro antibiotic and another medicine Flagyl. He cannot eat ANY solids, clear broth/liquid ONLY from now until Friday, when he returns to the doc. He is to go to the hospital if he begins to feel worse in any way.
Of course, he is not happy about the food restrictions, but he is NOT a complete idiot, and will follow them. As of right now, he is at work, and the doc said it is okay, if he takes it slow and doesn't push. Hmmm, we'll see.
Doc told him his favorite Shop Rite brand of iced tea is okay to drink, so he will live on that, Swanson chicken broth and jello.
Wish me luck, I think Hubby will be cranky. Have I mentioned that he is 6'3", with 54" shoulders and about 300 lbs? He need to get back down around 280, but this is NOT a fun way of doing it!!
This man gets cranky when he skips one meal! Yikes! LOL
As for the sick day, that is what the kids are having. Fuzzy and Pumpkin.
Pumpkin had herself worked up into a frenzy last night over a fitness test in gym that she felt she would not do well because she hurt her leg.
Fuzzy has a scratchy throat from the weather changing that is Spring... typical allergy stuff.
Mostly, it is a mental health day. And, 'Mommy is a sucker day'... but that is alright, everyone needs one of those occasionally!
