Day 41 Xmas in the ER

Had the treatment then got home on Christmas Eve
Absolutely everything went right
Finished wrapping the few things I found to give
Then we all turned in for the night

I don’t really know what happened
It’s not like anybody dropped the ball
It’s just one of those things that happens
it just happened to be me, that’s all
So having just left, it’s the last place I thought I’d be
At first, it was just a trickle near the scar
That Trickle turned into a wild wild river
To check it out, we spent Christmas day in the ER

Just a chance of a thing they call infection-
In the head or spine - which kinda got folks down
Enter: a parade of antibiotics
And 3 more days in that stupid rag thy call a gown
Now my bride, she says I wear it well
But I know that she knows that I know it’s all in jest
For now we are back to the game of hurry up and wait
Wait for the results of yet another test
Yes, I have gone completely crazy
And yes, I still hope for the verybest.
