Although I normally don’t do this, but since I’m exhausted of what happend last evening/night, I feel that I need to use X-Plained to explain.
As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago my previous posting “Why” that somewhere in mid July of this year, Ingrid, my living partner, felt hard with her right shoulder on the ground. Later then expected she was released from the hospital, but yesterday evening it was “shit” again. We went, on request of the Sint Antonius hospital, back to the SEH (Emergency Department) after her wound was bleeding again. It turned out that her blood seems to have particles of an bacterial infection. Decision was quickly made …. surgery, open the wound, clean it, check if the philosplate and screws have been infected (as far as possible) and close it again. They found nothing or at least not to be worried about that could lead to more concerns, but the hemotoma in her arm near the wound and the hematoma above her breast are most likely infected by a bacteria. Blood samples have been taken for a 4 days incubation and then they “hopefully” know which bacteria it is and continue with pills specific to defeat this bacteria.
For now, she stays in the hospital for 4 days, and last night I’ve heard that it takes roughly 48 hours before the antibiotic is at optimal strength to fight the infected bacteria in the hemotoma.
Is this all your concern? No, and normally I won’t bother others with private matters, but this hurts. Continuing with news and writing reviews is right now for me not possible. I hope you understand this and accept the “non X-Plained” posting.
I hope the have found some antibiotics that still work against those bacteria. Nowadays more and more stuff gets antibiotic resistance. And antibiotics can cause negative side effects like killing needed bacteria in the digestive tract as well affecting the balance between different kinds of them.
Thanks for your reply and ideas. I’m fully agree that when not needed, not using antibiotics however, in this case we had no choice. Her BSE was so high, that blood poisoning could lead to even worse conditions. Her BSE was 291 and lucky with the right antibiotics, it has dropped via 215 – 70 to 45 (last measurement Thursday). Over a couple of days we’re expected again in the hospital to do some wound checks and the BSE. I hope, and have a good feeling that this has dropped to normal female levels past 50 years to around 10-30. Only problem is that she needs to continue with this antibiotic for another 6 weeks (so 5 weeks to go). That’s a quite long period, but this is due to the origine of the surgery, a multiple shoulder fracture. For this, why want to extend the antibiotics to the max period. To be continued.
Beterschap voor je partner Angelique. Veel sterkte en doe maar even rustig aan. Gezondheid is veel belangrijker.
Met een hartelijke groet,
Arthur van Ancum
Dank je wel voor de ondersteunende woorden. Al zou ik meer voor X-Plained willen doen, het lukt gewoon niet en qua tijd al helemaal niet. Ben laat thuis van het ziekenhuis en ben weer vroeg onderweg om haar te zien. Maar zodra ze weer thuis is, al heeft zij dan verzorging nodig, dan zal het met X-Plained allemaal wat makkelijker gaan.
For those who don’t understand Dutch/Flemish; Thanks Arthur for your support. Even if I want to put more energy in X-Plained, right now with the situation with my partner, my mind isn’t their. Travelling all day up/down between home and the hospital. Result …. early out and late in the afternoon/evening back. But the moment she’s back home, I think, besides taking care for here, I’ll find again some time to continue withX-Plained.
My prayers are with you and your partner. I have had quite the year and a half as well. It is hard to focus on much of anything. Things have started to settle down but at times, I was not sure how I was going to handle anything else, the else came, and then some, but you figure out a way to get through it without going crazy. I just started getting into X-Plane and was going a lot of learning. When things became overwhelming, I started turning to X-Plane as a hobby instead of a study, just for an outlet. This site is great and I appreciate all the knowledge and time you share. For now, take care of your family and we will be here when you are ready.
Much appreciated to read your reply and support. I’ll keep your thought in our mind.
Speedy recovery Ingrid!
Calm down dear Angelique, do what you like the most and free your mind a bit or just discover some new places in Xp – just fly around.
Thanks. I’ll see if I can fly ones and a while and make some movies. That’s easier to do right now then writing reviews. We’ll keep you informed.
sorry to hear ! hope she gets well soon , and its perfectly understandable; the lack of post during such a time ! you take care too .
Thanks for your reply. It’s much appreciated and we’ll do our best.
Don’t worry buddy.Her face is OK to me and God’s will her health status.She will be fine again.God bless!
We’ll keep the thoughts within our mind.
Take care of yourself first. This is always your number 1 priority. And for those that are inconsiderate, that’s just to freaking bad. I will be waiting patiently for your return, no worries. Take care 🙂
I’ll try to do my best and for me it’s also important that when it goes with Ingrid better, it goes automatically with me better too.
I hope this clears up soon. Hopefully the doctors have done their job well and a swift recovery follows. Pass our best wishes onto your partner.
Thanks Jude. Lucky the micro laboratory found which bacteria it is and thus which antibiotic is needed. The antibiotic does more then only what’s needed now, but it’s in the case of Ingrid used for bone infections. Let’s hope that after couple of days the hematoms are reduced and Ingrid has less pain.
I totally understand the impact Angelique, most important remains your TLC and we hope for a good and speedy recovery.
Thanks for your reply. I’ll try to take care for her, here in the hospital and afterwards at home.
Geen probleem, Angélique.
Het komt er nu op aan er te zijn voor Ingrid.
Wij doen het wel even alleen!!!??
Zullen we doen. Dank je wel voor je reactie.
sorry to hear about your partner Ingrid, a very worrying time for you. here’s wishing for a full recovery soon.
Thank you and yes, it’s an unpleasant time hearing that perhaps a bacteria has infected the wound area, but hopefully the antibiotics work efficiently and fast.
