They have found another pocket of something in his hip and had to reposition a drainage tube he has in. Apparently since they did that he is extrememly miserable with pain.

They also cannot figure out why the infection is not going away. He has been on very strong antibiotics for 4 months now. He has to go back and forth to the hospital for antibiotic treatment ever other day.

They are now suspecting that it may also be his knee causing trouble. It has been hurting extremely bad also. Talked to him last night and they are planning to do a complete bone scan again and concentrate on his knee to see if there is indeed something there causing the trouble. His blood count is staying very high and I think it really has them stumped.

Until they get the blood count back down they won't put the new hip in. Apparently now they are talking about going ahead and replacing the knee also when he does go in.
