    Bug Gary's Summer of Hell 2015

    Gary is going to be MIA for a while. He fell yesterday and broke his leg repaired and will probably also have to have a replacement hip implant installed this afternoon.

    He is in a good hospital with very caring staff and a great surgical team and they are keeping him very comfortable and a little goofy with some high quality pharma while awaiting his surgery.

    Everything should go smoothly, and I'll let you know how it all goes.

    Hi,

    I think I'm good to freeze this thread now, and thanks to all for the good wishes.

    The skinny to the story is that shortly after I came home from 4 weeks in therapy for the broken femur, I got kidney stones. The stones were in a region that was inaccessible without major surgery, so a stent was put in to let the kidney heal and let the stones do what they were going to do without blocking by bladder.

    However, the kidney slowly became massively infected without detection until literally the last moment. I was taken back to an all-too-familiar hospital for antibiotics and stabilizing my vitals; sepsis had set in, the infection had spread to my entire body and my blood pressure was ridiculous. Knock on wood, 7/16/15 I returned home with a metric ton of antibodies I'll be on for another two weeks, I'm re hydrated and actually dropped a couple of pounds I needed to get rid of.

    So I'm closing this thread and a bad experience. I hope August is terrific for us all and I have a surprise gift as the Giveaway that's going up summarily.

    My Best,

    Gary

    Never give up. You will never fail, but you may find a lot of ways that don't work.
