The drilling at the hospital was successful and new tube installed. The procedure was done in the old McKenzie-Willamette hospital, and that is now a very depressing site. Hope to avoid it in the future. The culture was analyzed and the antibiotics I was started on yesterday do nothing for it, so new series started today. I am hurt and sort of depressed, and mostly tired. Time to knock myself out and go to bed.
One really cool thing was to watch ultra-sound display, and see the 'reservoir' being punctured by the tube and shrinking out, knowing that this was inside my belly.
Now I wonder how much that thrill will cost me. It took them about one hour to do it.
