Husband is home for the hospital. He had a temp OVER 104.
He had a Hospitalist. (A doctor who works only in the hospital)
I saw something about E-Coli on his forms.
Is the hospital responsible for telling about an infectious disease?
He has temporarily lost the important papers so I can't say more.
It's hard on me. My Chronic Pain gets in the way of me taking
good care of him.
I gotta scoot now ... Back later to see what's going on.

In the United States today, there is a pervasive tendency to treat children as adults, and adults as children. The options of children are thus steadily expanded, while those of adults are progressively constricted. The result is unruly children and childish adults. ~Thomas Szasz

Dear Pamela,
Soft hugz to you and sure hope your husband is better
The hospital was pretty much coving up, by letting you
know that e-coli can cause a infection and that is either what
your husband had or could come down with as he's more
suscepible to it.
Do a google search on it and go to the CDC view of it
as e coli can lead to infection.
I think the hospital was just trying to make sure you'd be careful.
You have my continued prayers and well wishes...
We all are thinking of you and luv ya...

Everyone has e-coli, but when it invades certain areas of your body it can lead to infection. If the infection isn't treated it could be serious. That's possibly what your husband had, although I don't know. It would be important to find the source of the e-coli so it could be avoided. For example, women can easily get certain vaginal infections from e-coli, which is generally found around the anus. There are many sources, however. Here along the lake, we sometimes get high levels of e-coli in the water, and the beaches get closed because of that. So you need to find out if your husband had an infection caused by e-coli bacteria, and, if so, what the source might be.

Good thing is it's usually treatable with with antibiotics.

Hope things are going better now!

Yes, I'll look at CDC and do a search.

PaL: You've stood my hairs on end! Scary!


This board is a place to get an entirely different view of Health information.
Sometimes I wish we could be more open.
Sometimes I wish we could talk politics! rolleyes
