PostPosted: Wed Jun 07, 2006 10:19 am    Post subject: Update about my sister!

Well, I'm sure you've all seen the post on the front page about my sister. I've had a lot of people asking what was actually wrong with her. Now that things are settled down I'll just post it here!

Starts out a little over a year ago. My sister is 45 and been a drinker and smoker all her life had to go get her coratid (sp) artery cleaned out as it was almost blocked. She got he surgery and was fine.

Within a few weeks she'd developed an infection and her Dr just kept her on anitbiotics and such and it wouldn't go away.

Finally this winter her neck started swelling up horribly. They'd put her on antibiotics and swelling would go away for a week or so, then as soon as she was off the antibiotics she'd swell back up.

Finally she went to her Dr and got scans and such done. They found that the infection had caused things to grow together in her neck and said that it was beyond him and sent her to a specialist.

Specialist did scans and said it didn't look like it would be that big of a deal and they could get her taken care of.

So they did exploratory surgery on her and found that things weren't as peachy as they thought. First off they found a clip in her neck that was left in her neck from the initial surgery and they believe that is what caused the staph infection.

They found that the patch on her artery had grown to her bottom layer of skin and her nerves that control her voicebox and the infection was much wider spread than they initially thought.

He have her a 50% chance of living through the surgery and after that a 50% chance of having a stroke if she lived through the surgery.

Luckily the surgery went off well, but was quite extensive. She's cut from behind her head, all the way down her neck to her collar bone. They actually cut her ear away from her head to get in and clean the infection from around it and clear down to remove infection from her vocal chords.

Currently she's at home but has to be on IV antibiotics. She has to take 3 bags of fluids a day!

OH! I forgot to mention they cut open her thigh to grab a piece of vein to replace the one in her neck! so she's got about a 10" scar there too!

Anyhow thanks for all the kind words and prayers!

Wow that surgery sounds pretty scary. Glad to hear she's all right though.
