We went to the hospital Tuesday evening and they removed a large abscess from the back of his buttock.  They sent us home with pain meds and antibiotics.  Last night his fever reached almost 104 so I took him back down there and they did more cutting in that area to remove more infection and admitted him.  They are worried that this infection is getting into his blood.  It is scary.  I am on my way back up there right now after a few hours of sleep to see how he is doing.  Please put out some positive energy his way.  Thanks

Get thy butt back to the Hospital, and we will take care of the enegy thingy...

Sorry to hear this, but as you must know by now, these things come and haunt us, so keep a good outlook, a tough spirit and make sure to pay attention to everything.  He is very fortunate to have you in his life, but don't tell him that!

The Bible contains 6 admonishments to homosexuals,
and 362 to heterosexuals.
This doesn't mean that God doesn't love heterosexuals,
It's just that they need more supervision.

It's Friday night and I just got home from the hospital and thought I would update you guys.  He is still in there, they had to go in once again and remove some more infection.  But his fever finally broke and they seem to be understanding of his need for pain meds before they repack the wound each time. 

In this process they discovered some kind of tumor in his lower back.  But they told him it was inactive and at this point there was no need to remove it but should it kick up at some point they will have to deal with it.  I never heard of an inactive tumor but oh well.

Well about noon my diabetes started kicking my ass and I found myself down in the ER with a 425 blood sugar.  I took three bags of fluids before they got it under control.

So all in all it has been a hell of a past few days.  Hopefully he will come home tomorrow and we can get things back to normal.......til the next thing.

Thanks for your support folks.
