|The drain that was put in during|
surgery on Saturday and removed
today, because it wasn't effective.
The washing out of the infected
area was effective, however.
She can't tell if any of the infection has entered the bone, but thinks at this point that there are good signs that it has not: no fever, and a much improved look to the infected area after only 48 hours. In any case, whether it's only affected soft tissue or not, she'll be on strong antibiotics for an extended period. The vancomycin really zaps her strength! Her intestines started working today, so there's another sign of progress.
I extended my stay here for another week. I hope things are more settled by then.
