Update on Marion

Marion is improving slowly and steadily. He has  survived  with me giving him his antibiotics in the Picc line. He saw both his internist and the infectuous disease doctor this week. They seem to think that bacteria got in his system at the site of the pneumonia shot. They suspected the vaccine was contaminated, but that has been ruled out. Marion was able to go back to work today. He missed two weeks of work. He worked most of the day, but did come home a bit early. He is beginning to cook again which is a great sign. We survived on my cooking, but cooking is his creative release so this is great! It's been a freaky event, but luckily we have such great medical care. It's wonderful to have him "almost" back to normal.

Glad to hear your DH is feeling better. I've been thinking of him and his arm picture.

I am so glad that Marion is doing better!! There was a story in the NY Times about a syringe manufacturer that was sending out contaminated syringes (kind of like the whole peanut butter thing) so I guess that is something to worry about now too.
