My father in law is really sick so we are headed up to Mayo for a few days. If you could please say a prayer for him it would mean so much! they found out he has Pseudomona infection. When I google it, its NOT good. They took him out of his coma and he is in so much pain. He is in the ICU and tries to tell us he is ready to die. We are really scared of losing him. He is too young and this is not supposed to be happening to him!!!!!!!
My sister is going to stay with our older two and we will take Mayson. will update when I can!
Brady had this infection in his ear, and they told me if it got into his blood, it would be very nasty. I'm so sorry that your FIL is dealing with it. We are keeping him in our prayers that he will be able to recover. They used a heavy duty antibiotic for us, and it took a couple of weeks, but it did finally clear up - I hope that the same is true for your FIL. I'm so sad he is in so much pain
I would love to talk to you more about this whole situation. We are at our wits end.... We are supposed to be at one of the best clinics in the nation and things just keep getting worse. He did have staph a while back and now this. He is so much pain and they cant control it. He talks of dying and we just dont know what the next step should be. second opinion??
thanks in advance!
Pseudomonas is a tough, aggressive infection. It's what burn victims get and it's nasty. It's distressing that he got it, because it means there was likely a break down in infection control somewhere- most likely in his original OHS. From the sounds of how it went, I have to think it was brewing all that time and they are trying to catch up to it now (I looked at your previous posts).
He'll just need really aggressive antibiotics, NUTRITION (this is important), hydration, and time. It's very frustrating because it shouldn't have happened. I'm sorry.
Infections diseases came in today. They also believe he still has staph as well. Will it ever end?? We are so frustrated. I am just glad infectious diseases was finally called in. I have been trying to get my MIL to get them in there for a few months now... Sounds like its going to be a long long haul for him and our family.
