Thnk you so much Ken, somehow I knew you would be the ideal candidate for my persistent quesitoning..lol..as I mentioned he has MRSA, which caused the infectious endocarditis, along with his underlying conditiion of advanced emphysema and dilated cardiomyopathy. Yesterday, Wednesday, his bp went down and his heart stopped for 3 to 4 min. They did compressions with meds and brought him back. The ICU director says he doen't think the operation is an option now, due to his weakened condition. It's really crazy how these infections migrate in these hospitals!! While in there, he also caught VRE, which is in the urine, a yeast infection, somehow they don't seem as concerned about that one, though.
Thanks so much for your quick response, after reading some of your comments to others, I said, hmmm, Ken seems like the right guy to target, and would probably be the right candidate for my barrage.,.again, thanks so much for your time.
Your welcome, and sorry for the infection predicament and, yes, unfortunately a hospital environment does easily pass on infections to the most vulnerable. Take care and good luck.
