Thanks, TL...all good thoughts are needed.
Now for the good news:
The bacteria (I still don't know which one) can be handled with oral antibiotics, so no IV for 6 months. Mom is still happy she got the PICC Line, she says it's much nicer than an IV line.
The drain was not removed, repositioned and now it's draining better. She's not in any pain and the only uncomfortable part about the PICC Line, the MD who inserted it looks disturbingly like my Brother with the same sense of humor. LOL!!!
Mom says she feels great and thanks everyone for their well-woshes and prayers.
She did have problems with several Pulmonary Embolisms, blood clots to her lungs. That's why she is on the coumadin. And they have notice several nodes on her thyroid, they will be doing a needle biopsy in the morning to determine if they are benign or malignant...this is not the first time she has had thyroid problems, had her parathyroids removed about 27 years ago.
Daddy is fine, he spent the afternoon at the Tattered Cover Bookstore
for some relaxing time. He's eating and getting enough sleep.
My heartfelt thanks to all of you for your support, I would not have been able to get through this without it.
