From bad to much much worse

This morning pus started to leak out from under your dressing. Dr. Bailey held your oxygen treatments, had the dressing changed, and wanted to see how you did for the day. We also got an infection disease Dr. on your case now to make sure we are doing everything we can to get you better.

You are now on three antibiotics and they have increase the vacuum on the dressing.

Your miserable and lethargic again. You've only been awake about 20 minuets total today.


Dr. Bailey came in to see you this afternoon and thought you looked well enough to wait to see how your wound looked in the morning. If there wasn't any improvement or if it looked worse he would take you to surgery to do debridement in the morning.

So we went on with your day. Tylenol seems to keep your pain mostly controlled except when you cough.



Then around 5 I started to think maybe that your chest around the wound was getting redder. At about 5:45 I was sure it was. I pointed it out to your nurse Mark and he put a call out to Dr Bailey.


The plan now is to take you into surgery first thing in the morning.


At first we were just concerned that you had been doing so well and were now sick again.


We are now scared.


Terrified.


You've just gone downhill so fast. I'm scared you may have gone septic.


How much worse is it going to be before it gets better?



Please pray.


Our heart is on the line again.
