Dear Stacy, my heart goes out to you. I can't offer you a drink but will sure keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

Good news - my blood levels show that the infection inside the leg is minimal. Bad news - doctor wants IV treatment to continue until Monday morning when he will do all the tests again and is still considering operating to make sure the joint site is clear. This means a weekend of getting up at 6 to be at the hospital by 7 and then making the trip again 12 hours later. Both DH and I are running on adrenaline as it is. The pain is still intense and they have had to move my IV site so between that and all the blood tests my arms are feeling like pin cushions. My physio therapy has been put back another week and I am still not able to keep much food down.

If I had realized I would be going through all this I think I would have kept the old knee. But I know that is really just the frustration talking and it will all be better soon. It is just hard to be making so much progress only to have it backslide.

Laurie, I know the regime is tough but if you get good results, the doc may not open you up again which would be good.

Re the acidopholous comments, I have been taking the largest dose of acidopholous (in a capsule) that I can get over here for years as all the treatments and drugs I have been on since getting kidney failure have played havoc with my guts. I think they are good but when you are on the really strong AB's, nothing really works.

There also was the Bobbsy Twins (sp?) I also read all the classics like Arabian Nights and many more I do not even remember. When I was even younger I read all the Hans Christian Anderson and Grimm's Brothers. I remember when I was about nine years old in Germany and finding my Christmas presents I read every book in secret that were my gifts. I had to act very surprised Xmas day when I got them.

You're going to be fine..Infections are a pain in the keester,but they do go away.. And the pain and trouble you qre having now is nothing to what it was before..put up with it like I'm doing with the center nurses bless their dark hearts you are healing.I'm saying a little prayer that you heal faster and very soon..Rest easy...

All the memories came flooding back with that statement! One nurse was so painful that I just started to avoid her at all costs. She ended up saying to my doctor that I was likely to self-harm!!! What a load of....!!! I ended up with a different nurse after that! And before her there were the haemo nurses who thought that making you cramp or pass out was an ideal way to teach you not to drink! That only worked as long as it took me to work out how to stop the machine!! Some think that because your kidneys don't work your brain has ceased to function too. They needed to have another anatomy lecture or two methinks!! Hang in there Kadesma. There are lots of good ones out there.

Thanks Bilby, the hemo nurses I got were all so nice and caring they would go out of their way for us..Of course my bringing cookies once a week helped j/k they were all wonderful..It's the peritonel nurses that make me see red..There is one who will not look at me, but at my DH as if he's my keeper and I'm very close to saying something...They have
been having a lot of perotonitis and of course ol dummy her has had 3 episodes of contamination soooo all that is going on is my fault..right I gave everyone peritonitis,sunuck into their homes at night i did and spread it around... Dh kind of let her have it saying do you suppose that some got it HERE, she turned pale and next thing I know, I get to show them I know how to connect and disconect.. punishment for being so smarty..I did let them know that the little trained monkey only gives one show..after that go chase yourself so we shall see what comes next..
