Staph infection - 4 days in the hospital
What a week. Oh, wait, it's only Tuesday. So I noticed a bit of drainage at the top of my pacemaker site. I took a picture, showed it to the doctor who sent me across the street to be admitted to the hospital (Emory in ATL) and I just got out yesterday. It is not showing in my blood nor are there any indications that the infection is internal. Still, I am stressing as my pacemaker is making me feel great. I need to keep it in there! I have a CRT-P bi v.
Just sharing. Love the moral support here.
