So as if all the medical stuff with Jazzy wasn’t hellish enough for 2021, Peter called me this morning and said my dad was in the hospital with a very severe staph infection (like, “the CDC was called in to see if they could identify the strain” level of severe).
He had both hips replaced last year and was doing really well with them, but one of them apparently got mega-infected and he’s back in the hospital. They had to operate on him again to remove the infected components of the hip. Luckily they didn’t have to remove the whole hip joint again, but this is really going to set back his progress.
He was pretty groggy when I talked to him after the surgery but I can tell he’s really discouraged.
Screw 2020 and screw 2021, too.
