"Set backs are bumps in the road, they are not the end of the roads."
Yes friends Steve has hit some bumps in the road the past few weeks.
Continuing infection at the port site - MRSA- for any of you medical types. Very hard to get rid of as it is resistant to most antibotics. The one antibiotic it does respond to (Vancomycin) has done a number on Steve's kidneys and they and not filtering as they should. We are hopeful that the kidneys will kick in soon and that there won't be any lasting effects. The medical staff say that they should do so and don't seem hugely concerned. A continuing problem is that Steve is having a difficult time eating and drinking, last week we were in clinic each day for IV fluids. They are renal dosing the antibiotic and he still gets it IV, just not as often.
Steve didn't have the energy to make a post but wanted me to let you know that he is miserable and has resorted to whining! Love that his humor is intact. Thanks for the calls and emails - I got word that the blog was of no help and to get with it and post something. We did enjoy the calls so maybe I'll quit updating.
