Dano needs some thoughts..

Recommended Posts

I hinted at it the other day, but those of us that know have all kept quiet. Dano's been fighting an infection in his leg since late last winter. He wasn't able to come to the lake over the summer and hasn't been able to basically work since spring.

 

He's had an IV pic in him since spring and was on one anitibiotic drip that he was going in once or twice a day to have administered. Everytime his leg seemed to be clearing up they'd take him off the drip and next day he'd be right back in emerg swollen and red again and the best they could tell him is that it was an MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a bacterium responsible for several difficult-to-treat infections in humans).

 

They did a biopsy.. pics attached.. and then determined he was on the wrong drug. So since November he's been on something else.. three times a day he had to go in and have a bag hooked up. We'll FORTUNATELY for Dan he also has an annual colonospy and when having it done last week the Dr that was doing so realized that he was allergic to what they were giving him for the infection and Dan was within a few days of dying from it!

 

Dan is currently lying in the hospital texting me back and forth.. he's even had a priest in today to lay his hands on him (and I checked with him to make sure it wasn't a catholic priest..) The drug they had him on... turns out he was allergic to that as well. They have tried a few other things the last two days and he's now too sensitive, so they have to let his system flush before they try anything else.

 

Dano is the best fishing partner a guy could ever ask for... he cooks and does dishes.... so please folks, like I asked in another thread recently, a few prayers, thoughts or howling at the moon as we want the lad healthy so he can get back to running his business and out for a long deserved bit of fishing!

Thanks for the update Wayne. Dano and I had talked about his situation, and the ups and downs of this sure have been hard on him. I know its been a long road, but boy this really throws a wrench in the recovery.

 

I hope you are feeling better soon Dano, we need your wit and fishing expertise around here.

Dan, that's a long time to be living with that infection. They'll fix it. Then you can get your butt down here to fish with Wayne and the Marc dude. J misses you...ok ok ok I miss you too. We'll both make you the best meal we can conjure up. Please get well my friend. I have a higher power too but as much as I love ya Bud, there's no way I'm praying to J. Sorry.

That really sucks about all that has happened to him but quite good luck that they found out about the allergy before it was too late.

 

All the best to Dano and I hope he recovers quickly!

    • trolling Lake O. having some line issues

      Last trip out, trolling in 1-130 feet, one of our lines (braided line on downrigger) was accumulating this gooey type of yellow stinky stuff. it was very tough to get off and it was mostly in the top 20 feet of line. I'm glad we didn't hook into a fish on that line because there was no way I could have reeled it in.  Never happened before in the last dozen or so trips.  Wondering if the water was just very dirty that day, or I should switch the type of line. had 2 other lines out, one with

    • Need Some Help from all the Fishing Gurus Here!

      I am thoroughly impressed with the number of extremely knowledgeable anglers on this board! I trust that you can help me out! I'm working on a project and would like to know what is the most common question that you get asked by new or less experienced anglers? I appreciate all your feedback? Okay, I should have been more specific, more general questions about equipment such as: What is the best line to use? Should I buy a left handed or right handed retrieve baitcasting reel?

    • Some time on the rock

      The local rocks. LOL The knee,s took a beat,n the last 7/8 days on the river, so did a bit of lazy layed back perch fishing. Stayed away from the hoards and just found a nice quiet place to myself. Hot coffee,terns diving for shiners,loons doing the same. Seen 3 lakers swimming around the rock piles. Lots of dink perch to be had, but was a nice way to spend a few hours this morning.  Chunked up some shrimp and pressed some salt in it. Seems to work. LOL
