We're Back In The Hospital....

Long story...basically his bladder is full of blood & blood clots. These are not good things.

So, we're here until they get him to stop bleeding....or at least get the bleeding to slow down. According to the doctor, we may or may not be home for Easter. He's got something called a Murphy Drip going now... If that is able to irrigate the bladder & get the clots out, then great. If it doesn't, then we may be looking at another surgery.

With the Murphy Drip, they are running 6,000cc of fluid into his bladder just wide open. The catheter bag to empty the bladder only holds 4,000cc, so somebody is in here usually every 10-15 minutes to either change the fluid bags or empty the bloody fluid bag.

This is just awful.

The good news: his bloodwork just came back, and we don't need a transfusion.

Oh girl, what rotten news!

Better to be in the hospital, getting everything taken care of, than worrying about being home. It is okay - Easter happens every year - there will be others. But there's only one Damon. Take care of yourselves.

Oh, LP! Sending many prayers to you and your family that they will get your poor DH figured out and you can be done with all the hospital garbage. This has been going on way too long. I hope you have answers soon.
