When I went in, 2 days after my mother went in for triple bypass, my blood count was 24,500. Normal is about 9,000. They said my body had used up all my white cells and was producing baby cells to try to fight the infection. After 2 1/2 weeks on 3 different anti-bodies, and pain medication every 2 hours interveinously, I have just 1 pocket of infection left. And hoping oral anti-biotics will take care of that.

They want to get the rest of the infection cleared up, and then take out part of my intestines.

If this had happened before WW2 and Antibiotics, I would have died.

The last IV they put in took from 9:30 at night till 10 minutes after midnight, to get one to work. Finally they got a X Army guy to get it, he had to jab me 3 times before getting it.
Diverticulitis is no fun…….

My Mother got out 5 days before me and is doing great.

June 2004 I spent 10 days in the hospital with the big "D". 8 days on an IV with no food or water. My intestine was perforated. Been 3 years, oatmeal every morning, Metamucil every eve, and no popcorn, or small seeds, and like your Mom has always said, chew your food! Get well, Tankdriver........ Oh ya, cost 24G, but I'm alive!
