Had a minor scare this morning.
At about 5 AM Mom woke me up needing to be taken back to the hospital. One of the insicions had started leaking some kind of liquidy goo during the night. She thought the moisture was from feeling sweaty. I was alert enough to get her to the hospital soon enough; but, still feeling somewhat exhausted to not really focus on the possibility of being readmitted for something.
As it turned out, the doctor wanted the leaking to continue to discharge the goo that had potential to cause internal infection. Mom suspected the incision was opened when she tried to stand up. She was given a prescription for antibiotics and a clean gauze patch and released within the hour.
