Happy Birthday, Mike, again! September 25, 2013Posted by Stella☆LunaC in Mike's Big Adventure.
Mike was brought back to UW Hospital by ambulance from the rehab facility Tuesday night with a 102 fever and in quite a bit of pain and distrerss, not to mention he couldn’t talk, and was obviously confused.
Last Sunday was Mike’s birthday. His sister, her husband and I planned a trip to see him, take a cake and try to make his day a little brighter. Instead, we were surprised to learn he was in a great deal of pain, from a bad wisdom tooth, or so we thought….his temperature fluctuated between 99.5 and 100.8, sometimes reaching as high as 102! Something was happening, and tests were ordered. The day was not a good one for our Boy, and we went home perplexed.
Last night at 11:54pm I got a call from the hospital, one of Mike’s doctors said Mike needed to have some repairs done to clear up an infection. They were scheduling him for first thing in the morning and said get a good nights sleep, he will be fine!
They found bile in fluid drawn from an LP done the day before, tests confirmed the infection source. Finally, we could put a finger on the culprit!
The hospital called around noon, Mike was in Recovery, all went well, the leak in a bile duct was repaired and the peri-area was freed of infection. Tests concluded that no infection had got in the bowels, and everything was good to go. He is doing great and is sleeping for the first time in 6 days!
Soon Mike, you will be back on your feet, starting rehab again, and giving the nurses hell! Now get to WORK, battle-scarred Warrior, another battle is WON! WHOOOT! <3 <3 <3
