Thanks for the good news Katy.
Glad to hear you guys are happily at home. Alan, may you continue to heal quickly.
That's terrific news that you're back home.
Prayers your way.
ADV Family and Friends, on Wed. March 5th Alan was having alot of drainage and was placed on Keflex as a preemptive measure, Monday the 10th Alan was doing very well, we went to the Dr. a medical assistant took his staples out and applied steristrips and the Dr. felt Alan was doing very well. t The afternoon of the (11th) his incision area was swollen, on the 12th it was swollen and inflamed, we saw the PA in the afternoon and he indicated there was some cellulitis (sp?) and since Alan had finished up the Keflex the PA prescribed Bactrim, by this AM Alan had taken his 2st dose of a generic Bactrim, he has no fever, has his feet up watching Star Trek. Once again we request you keep us in your thoughts, prayers, and send positive vibes our way.
This part sounds good, but the first part was pretty worrisome.
I hope this business turns around for him soon. He has had to put with enough.
I am sure this is weighing on you too, Katy.
Best wishes to both of you.
There sure have been a lot of ups and downs. I hope the downs are over and Allen has a speedy recovery. My thoughts are with you.
Get better quick, Alan!
Get well Alan!!!
Thinking often of you two!!!
Infection issues in my incision appear to have been resolved.
However, as far as the leg healing, he said it was to soon to begin bearing weight, so I am stuck with the walker for a while longer. Not what I really wanted to hear today. Go back next week as the stitches were not ready to be taken out today. We will discuss my leg in more detail next appointment but don't expect getting rid of the walker for a few more weeks.
An infection developed in the upper incision area, we experimented with numerous antibiotics as well as IV infusion therapy to no avail, I had suggested earlier I thought there was a hematoma near the incision site, eventually the Dr. decided surgical intervention was the best course of treatment, Alan felt good about the debridement and wound cleansing surgery On March 20th. :eek1 All went well, a hematoma was discovered and evacuated, and the area was irrigated with saline solution, the area that encapsulated the hematoma was stitched up with special stitches to close up the area. The hematoma was confined to that area, so we have been told the hip joint and the femur bone were not exposed to the infection.
We are cautiously optimistic :huh, the PA's have been pleased with the progress, as are we. No swelling or inflamation! Alan is getting around well with a walker, we burned our yard waste after we got home from the appt.
He loves using Meanie (our suzuki sidekick) to get around our place. :dllama
We thank you all for your ongoing support!
need to talk more!
Thanks for the update.
Sounds like the healing continues, another step in the right direction!
Yeah, I would prefer to be reading your latest ride report, but this surely beats the previous update.
Hang in there, the trails are patiently waiting.
Yeah guys, this cold spring weather is really dragging on... not missing much out there just yet. Take your own sweet time and heal up right!!
Eight months since the break? :eek1 Man I feel for you! If you ever want to take that toyhauler somewhere while you are on the mend, let me know and I will come over and get it ready for you and hook it up. I'm only 15 minutes away. This weekend looks pretty good for a campout.
