Sharon just went in for emergency surgery to remove two large pockets of puss under her jaw line and chin. She will be in the hospital for the next few days, most likely be discharged on Saturday. Surgery should last about 25-35 minutes with recovery about an hour. I would ask for Positive thoughts for Sharon. Will keep updates coming asap but my battery is running low.

This all happened because of a cracked tooth the dentist took to lightly. Dumb Ass!!!

Surgery was a success and she is recovering nicely. We both appreciate the prayers and positive thoughts, this was her first hospital experience for her self. She has been in the hospital many times for my injuries but never her own.

Anyway the puss is draining and they worst is over. Now it is just a waiting game to see how fast they can flush it all out.

Thanks again!!

One of my Wifes friends has a mother, who went blind because of an abscess upper molar. That stuff is pretty major...I can't understand the Dentists decision to take that so lightly. Glad everything is working out for you all.

Update to her condition, it has gotten worse again. They just took her in for another CT scan to see if there is a third pocket of puss. Also she has started to retain water, not normal for her. We will know more in about an hour but it is never good when a brain specialist is called in to consult and he orders a CT scan ASAP.

Hoping it is just a side affect of the meds she is on but they aren't taking any chances. Will post when I know more. Thanks for the support guys.

Hang in there and be a demanding patient advocate!

Picked Sharon up yesterday from the hospital and took her home, finally. Along came a 2 page set of instructions of how to clean her incisions and 4 different antibiotics. They said two strains got together and made a new type of infection that needs a cocktail of antibiotics.

Thanks for all of your thoughts and prayers, we appreciate it very much.
