I’m at the hospital with Mr Sullivan right now and while he is snoozing, I thought I’d give you a quick recap of what has been happening with him. On Thursday morning he had fluid drawn from his swollen knee and underwent painful CT and an MRI scans. Once they were read, it was determined that he had to have surgery in his leg to remove the infection. After a 90 minute surgery, the infection and a one of his quadricep (thigh)muscles was removed. He came out of the surgery just fine, although he is enduring a lot of pain in his leg. Once the doctors are sure that all the infection is cleared up, he can start on his blood thinners again to help clear the blood clots in his calf. He is still on insulin treatment to bring down his blood sugar level.
I know that a lot of positive thoughts and prayers from family, friends, and the blogging community came our way for his procedure. It is going to be a long haul on the road to recovery. He will need to recover from the surgery, start diabetic and blood clot treatment, adjust to an entirely different lifestyle, and deal with physical therapy. But he has big plans to dance at our godchild/niece’s wedding this summer. I told her that he may just be swaying, instead! If you could continue to keep us in your thoughts and prayers, it would be very much appreciated. I’ll keep you posted when I can.
Thanks to all of you so very much!
