Good Afternoon All!
It`s been a pretty horrid weekend for some family members. First it was Ruby with her infection. They think it might be tonsilitis but until the culture results come back, no one really knows. Anyway we`ve been to see her today and she`s absolutely fine. Bossing Mum around and being a typical 4 year old. I think she`ll be home within the next couple of days.
On a more serious note, Angies partner Karen had an op to remove some ascesses from one of her breasts about 3 weeks ago. After a few days it became infected and the doctor gave her antibiotics. Twice it has been so bad that Angies had to take her to A&E, the first time she was sent home because there was no one at the local hospital to deal with her and the hospital that did the initial op weren`t interested.
Last saturday Karen was taken back to A&E. The area of the op was so swollen they drew a line where the swelling ended and sent het to wait until blood test results came back and after an hour the swelling had become so much worse that they admitted her there and then with suspected Septicemia. They had her nil by mouth from saturday night with a view to her having her op on sunday and today, still nil by mouth and no op, she has been transfered back to the original hospital with cellulitis.
The poor lass is terrified and in so much pain. The tradgedy is that they`ve left it so long that she has so much dead tissue we don`t know how much of the breast they can save.
Most of the time our National Health service is second to none but I`m hearing so many horror stories lately, something drastic needs to be done.
Right rant over.
In true Lynne fashion, if there`s a need I`ll make a card. Here is the card I made for Karen.

Hopefully next time I post I`ll have some better news.
Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
