Another hospital stay

So, Thursday night we were in the ER.  They moved really quickly because he is a transplant recipient. By the next morning Angel was admitted back onto the transplant floor.  It was so sad to have to do this all over again.  I enjoyed seeing the familiar faces but really wish we could have stayed at home.

Turns out, Angel had a UTI from the removal of the kidney stones.  After 4 days on an antibiotic drip, they decided to send him home.  The one thing that bugs me is the ER took a urine sample from the urinal instead of just having Angel use a cup.  It takes 36 hours for the cultures and it came back with way too many bacterias.  They had to do another sample to pinpoint the exact bacteria they needed to treat.

Probably one of the hardest things this time around was telling Anna Friday morning that she could not come home because we were back at the hospital.
