Pirate is in the hospital because he had scratches on this arm and was picking at it with a needle because they were infected


Pirate is in the hospital because he had scratches on this arm and was picking at it with a needle because they were infected. He put the needle down to put medicine on them then accidentally rammed his knuckle into the infected needle. He woke up the next morning with his hand swollen so we went to the clinic and they gave him antibiotics and took a culture. We went to the clinic again to show that it spread again so they gave him a shot and changed antibiotic. The called today to check on him and told him he has Strep and he told him it got worse and it’s climbing up his arm. They told him to go to the ER and we have been there all day but he has to stay at the hospital for 2 days. They also said he has an injury to his kidneys so they will keep a close eye on that. We won’t know anything further until tomorrow to see if he will need surgery or not. Please pray for us.

Sounds like something that just happened to my Uncle Pedro minus playing with needles. He had strep for two days. His throat swelled and closed. He had an infection that attacked his whole body and was in ICU for 7 days. He nearly died and not just from strep. Thank goodness no MRSA and thank goodness his kidney failure is acute. Infection is no joke. Praying for Mike.

Does he take a lot of medications Vivian Chavez Tanis if he does and they say he needs dialysis don’t let them do it tell him to stop taking his medication for 2 days minimum and his numbers should go back to normal happened to me countless times before and after my transplant and my kidneys are perfect because of what I did

He is on a ton of meds for diabetes, high blood pressure and pain due to him wrecking his race car. I will bear this in mind.

Call my mom if you would like advice. She has been learning and knows a lot about all this from her experience as a coder and has been getting good help from a couple fellow co-workers from the hospital that she works at.

A lot of times when you are on a lot of meds ur kidneys get overloaded so u need to cleanse them and no
Meds is the easiest and fastest way drs don’t approve of it but it works I know from experience but also learned they don’t like it cuz less money they can charge u and insurance

I believe he is super overdue for a cleanse and thanks for the reminder I’m going to make him drink green juices and other detoxifying drinks.
