  1. Lonnie, Let me tell you we are still on the same page in life & having coffee together. Your article really struck HOME !!!!! My husband went to have a prostate biospy , 2 weeks ago. Well the next day he got deathly ill, took him to e.r. they sad swollen prostate put cath in sent home. Well the next day , he was in terrible shape, i had to call the squad. I was so so scared. Well now they admit him , we go 4 days near death, let me tell you i was trying to stay right on top of things, comp knowledge, calling drs., in bigger cities. I am watching my husband pass after loosing Shane 9 mo. ago. Finally they decide he got an urinary tract infection from the biopsy, but his body was being resillionte to every antiobiotic. Then he has merca, a case of deadly e-coli from the biopsy, & a urinary tract infection. He was having spells every hr. where his temp. would go 104 , blood pressure 60 over something. Well somewhere along the way they found the right anti, THANK THE GOOD LORD.!!!!!!!! We spent 10 long, scary , confused , exhausting days in the hosp. He is now home & on his way to recovery, still very, very tired. I never realized what a rock he had been to me till i had to watch him lay there scared to death!!! How exhauting the whole thing was, i havnt dealt with Shanes acc. very well at all then to have this throwed at me. Wow well we are all doing o.k. now .Think of you often, your friend SANDY
