Thursday is the day I am due to go into hospital for my first knee replacement. Have all the respite in place for the two boys which took a lot of doing but am happy with the arrangemens we have now. This morning I got a call to say my pre op tests show I have MRSA present in my nose so the op is postponed . I have to have oral antibiotics and also antibiotic cream up my nose, 48 hours after I have finished taking it I have to have a swab taken, then 48 hours after than other swab taken and finally 48 hours after that a third swab taken and if they come back clear the surgery will go ahead as soon as possible. 40% of the population have MRSA present in their nose but as Nicky also frequently has it around his gastrostomy site the doctor suspected I would have it too. Fortunately all the respite arrangement can just be put on hold until needed.
