Terrible Week

June 10th, 2023 at 02:38 pm

I have had a terrible week. My son was sent home from the hospital too early -- sounds to me like the doc was anxious to get started on his vacation -- and he hadn't been properly monitored (IMHO), so a day after he came home he woke up in the night vomiting bile and went back to the hospital in an ambulance. He went back into surgery the same day and part of his colon was removed due to two blockages -- one caused by scar tissue and one section that just wasn't working. He also has some residual infection. A port has been installed so that any fluid buildup can be detected early. I am hoping and praying that he is now really on the road to recovery. I have had one conversation with him since the second surgery, and he sounds better. I think the new surgeon is a big improvement over the first, but who knows, maybe the problem just wasn't obvious before.

I have been frantic, beyond stressed.

Spending: $23 for groceries, $81 for gifts, and my Best Buy technology plan renewed for $212. And this morning I spent $5 at a garage sale for two car mats. I was planning to get Weathertech mats, but these are heavy and fit well enough and I think they are going to be fine. Saved me a lot of money.

    Oh my goodness CB, that is a LOT to go through. I am glad that it seems like he is now on the mend and receiving proper care. I hope things go smoothly from now on. It must be so hard for you to be so far away from him right now. I'm sending lots of healing thoughts!

    It does sound as though they sent him home too soon. I am so sorry to hear that he is going through this. I hope all is sorted now and all that is left is for him to recover. {{hugs}}

    It's always tough when our kids are in danger, especially when it is the type that could easily have been prevented. Sounds like medical negligence at the very least.

    I am so sorry about your son and your own health. I feel like now dr just kick you out and send you on your way. After all insurance doesn't want to pay for anything. My uncle got out of the hospital way before he should have.

    Thinking of you and hoping your son and you are doing better. Prayers going out again!

    I hope your son recovers quickly. I honestly think that if a doctor inappropriate discharges a patient and that results in further problems, there should be reprocussions, as they have lives in their hands. A friend of mine had a similar issue where she had an appendicitus and a doctor sent her home, but later called her back. She wound up getting an appendectomy and having peritonitus that was treated with antibiotics.
