Wednesday Feb 17, Nick went in for Chemo and a sore side. They ended up putting this new stent and tube out of his liver.
The tube comes out his side between the bottom two ribs. It’s been sore….it’s also been seeping.
Friday night, I put this hunk of gauze on it, taped it up and off we went to the fish fry. We left early since Nick didn’t feel very well. We went home, cuddled on the couch and Mr. & Mrs. Excitement went to bed by like 9:30pm.
Saturday morning, I took one look at that hunk of gauze and called the nurse hot line. It was full of yellow liquid. Everyone knows bile, the yellow fluid your liver produces to help digest your food. This is what it looked like. Every time he breathed, a few drops would leak out.
So off to Urgent Care we went. They cleaned him up, took samples, did a CT Scan and discovered it’s an infection. Which, on one hand isn’t good, but on the other hand, 2 Rx’s and we were on our way HOME instead of on our way to 3 more days in the hospital.
I’m changing bandages every morning and night. And the stream of yellow seems to be slowing down. We didn’t do much this weekend……
And I can tell.
I look at my legs and go UGH….
