The New 'Normal'

Jordi spent the last week in South Miami Hospital because he was diagnosed with two infections. Docs wanted to get to the bottom of why these infections keep coming back. This was number 4 hospital stay for blood infections. So after five days of testing they found NOTHING! That was an huuuuuuuuuuuge relief on the one hand; no cancer, and a huge frustration on the other, no source to date that is causing these infections.

We did come home with some 'goodies'; a couple of weeks worth of antibiotics; a pic line and several dozen syringes filled with saline and other fluid, that WE get to inject three times a day, every eight hours, until September 5th. Okay this would constitute as a definitive 'Daily Drag'. The good news is he can actually walk around this this bulbous contraption, just puts it in his pocket whilst it's dripping into his arm. Ah the wonders of modern medicine!
