So, I just got home from the hospital at about 11pm.
Hubby was sent directly from the doctor's office to the Emergency Room.
The diverticulitis has flared its ugly head, 10 days after the colonoscopy showed everything to be hunky dory. UGH!
It was so bad, and Hubby in such pain, they were worried he had an abcess or blockage. Thankfully, the CT scan showed none of that, just a big whopping infection.
Hubby white blood cell count was over 17,000, not good.
So, he is admitted to the hospital on IV antibiotics. Flagyl and Cipro, IV fluids, too.
Can you believe that after the morphine kicked in and Hubby took a nap he started begging for food? Men!
They let him have clear broth, jello, and tea. He was happy afterward, which is a good thing, since he will be on fluids only again for a while!
I left him playing with the plasma tv, and wireless keyboard, he was going to read his email and then, maybe get a movie on demand. Yeah... it is like being in a hotel nowadays at the hospital.
It will probably be late tomorrow or on Saturday before he is released. Depends on how fast they get the infection under control.
Thankfully, the Scoutmaster and assistant Scoutmasters are all so wonderful, they will be taking down Hubby's tent and packing up all of his and the kids stuff, and bringing it back to us.
Hubby had to just leave it as is and catch the ride home with our friend Bob! He was a mess earlier today... I knew he was going to the hospital as soon as I laid eyes on him.
Please send prayers and positive thoughts! I don't know when I will be back to update you... probably not until tomorrow night at the earliest. I am going back to the hospital with the kids tomorrow.
Thank you all for all your kind comments so far today, they mean so much to me! You are all the best!!!
