Before I get to the restaurant visit, here is some info about a pretty serious situation with Cindy. You likely know by now that she has been living with us for several years and for the past many weeks she has been dealing with some serious pain in her hip and knee. She has been to several doctors and none of them have been able to say for sure what is needed to fix her problem. Last Thursday, she went to see about getting another injection in her hip and after being told about how much pain she was in, the doctor sent her for a hip x-ray. At 4 pm that day, the doctor’s office called and told her to go to the hospital for emergency surgery the next morning, but didn’t tell her why. After the surgery we learned that she had an infection in her hip that even required some bone removal – bless her heart.
She will be in the hospital until tomorrow, then go to a step-down location, and finally home for six weeks on an IV. We don’t yet know if it’s Mrsa (and sure hope not), the cause of the infection, or the next step for the hip. We are just happy that the problem has been discovered and that she is no longer crying from the intense pain. Here she is post surgery after her sister fixed her hair.
