MRSA!


Yep, they grew MRSA from his sputum! He has been on antobiotics and it's gone from his lungs now, but he still has it up his nose. I think he may have been a carrier anyway, as I remember they did nasal swabs and decided to put him on antibiotic cream to squirt up his nose for a week before he had his first hip replacement seven years ago, but it's hospital policy to isolate patients with MRSA to prevent spread to other patients. So, he's now in a cubicle room on his own. It's not causing him any problems up his nose, but as he has tubes and stuff going up both nostrils they cannot treat it right now.
 
Of course, now I have to put on a disposable apron, and scrub up at every visit before can enter the room.
 
Poor Ian. :-(

    Lisa, I just read your note at MP's. I am so sorry. I hope you have a good support system. Somehow long distance hugs from someone you've never met seem hollow, but it's the best I can do.

    Hugs and prayers and sadness
