In which she’s allergic to silk

ouch

So basically I forgot to write a post today and I was going to say, “fuck it” and not write one but my in-laws just called and asked about Keely. Apparently I mentioned her in my last post, the fact that she had to have surgery, and then I forgot to call them and tell them about it.

 

BUT since they DO read the blog they knew about it and I figured that I should share the entire sordid tale with you guys too.
First, as you know, Keely had surgery last May (or April…can’t remember which one) and that was that.

 

Except it wasn’t. She got an infection in January when I was on my way out there and had to have an I&D which is Incision and something else that starts with D but basically it means “we gotta clean this shit up!” and that’s what they did.

 

It got a little better and one part of the infection cleared up but she’s basically had this oozing abscess since January.

 

I was actually getting really ticked about it (so was Keely) and then last weekend the original infection was back. She went in Monday and they took her straight back to surgery. This time I wasn’t there to help though so I felt bad about that although I didn’t know she was going to have surgery.

 

Anyways, they took her back to the OR and opened her up and there was all the Seri Scaffolding that they’d put in back in April (or May). What is Seri Scaffolding? Well, I’ll tell you. It’s a mesh made out of silk that’s put into your body to help tissue grow and get very strong. As the tissue grows the silk disintegrates and it really speeds up the healing process.

 

NORMALLY AT LEAST!

 

Apparently Keely must be allergic to silk because the stuff was a mess, hadn’t disintegrated and had pockets of infection everywhere. They had two surgeons and they took out all that they could find without actually having to redo the entire surgery.

 

Not only that but Keely was under a local!!!

 

But … when she went back on Wednesday there seemed to be no infection so that’s good.

 

So that’s the story with Keely. It’s a very rare allergy so it’s fucking unbelievable that she could have it. That kid goes out of her way to have complications!

 

Ok, that’s my post. Hopefully she’ll live and I’ll live and you’ll live and that’ll be that.

    Poor kid.
    I managed to get a bone infection in my “good foot”, so I can relate to going out of the way to have complications.

    Drain. Incision and Drain. But,yeah, it means there’s a big mess that needs cleaning up.

    This happened to my pet bunny. She kept ripping out her external stitches trying to get to the internal stitches that she was allergic to. Guess I should have thought twice before removing a rabbits girly parts..
