Unfortunately I have some bad news, Mrs.Plook is currently hospitalized for a perforated colon and a septic infection, I am writing to you all from her bedside.

Apparently the medication Decatron (spelling?) used to reduce her brain tumor inflammation also can weaken the walls of the digestive system.

The day of the Gamma Knife surgery she had some discomfort and it was thought to be a UT infection, they did a Urine test and we found out Friday it was negative.

By Saturday morning she was in pain so we took her to Urgent Care and they sent her to ER and she was directly admitted.

To avoid doing a complex colon surgery that would affect any possible needed cancer treatments (it would be a 4 to 6 month turn around) they are flooding her with antibiotics.

The fly in the soup is that antibiotics and steroids work opposite of each other and both are needed.

I will miss the concert Tuesday, but will be giving the tickets to someone who will go.

Please keep Mrs.Plook in your prayers and thoughts.

So sorry to hear, Plook. My thoughts are with you both once again. Hopefully the antibiotics will at least be able to quickly wipe out the colon infection. :oops:

Probably Decadron (Dexamethasone)

Hang in there team Plook hospitals the best place to be to get the all important medications evened out quickly, and where they can deal with any possible adverse reactions right away, as opposed to the tiring home hospital home hospital merry-go-round that can go on for weeks with little progress and a much slower recovery....

Massive bursts of positive energy heading your way.

Nice to have ZappaFriends that understand. I'm in the shower, then to the bus and meeting DM for pizza across from Da Crest.
I don't know who will miss each other most Plook. I think you've been at every DZpZ show I've been to except Chico & Tahoe. :cry:
