Getting out of the hospital is a lot like resigning from a book club; you’re not out of it until the computer says you’re out of it. – Erma Bombeck
Sue returned home today after a severe UTI resulting in bacterial sepsis and toxic-metabolic encephalopathy. Toxic-metabolic encephalopathy is a result of infections, toxins, or organ failure. When the electrolytes, hormones, or other chemicals in the body are off their normal balance, they can impact the brain’s function. This can also include the presence of an infection in the body or presence of toxic chemicals. The encephalopathy usually resolves when the underlying chemical imbalance is restored or offending infection/toxin removed.
We were supposed to go to Old Ranch for the monthly dinner dance but we stayed home, getting Sue back into the swing of things! The gang had a great time…we got the report!
Our security camera alerted us that at 9:30 PM we had a visitor to our mailbox…we know who you are.. and Sue got a GET WELL card signed by everyone at the dance… great to grate friends.
