He Is Going To Kill Me !!

Remember when I told you a few months ago that my son D'Angelo had a problem with his leg from a flesh eating disease he got years ago? Well the infection is back with vengeance again !

He has been running a fever and chills and red marks going up his leg. Very scary stuff. Even though he is hundreds of miles away, my daughter in law is so good about keeping me in their lives she sent me these pictures of D'Angelo in his hospital bed with my grandson, Donovan next to him. He is going to kill me for posting these pictures but I think they are cute. They were sent via phone camera so the quality is horrible but the subjects are cute!!

He was given several different antibiotics over the past few days with no change. Yesterday they did blood work and an MRI and found that it is not in the bone...Thank God! They finally found out what antibiotic to give him and sent him home to do this through an IV for the next 5 to 7 days. He can go back to work but has to do the IV in the evening. He is not too happy about all of this and I am just so worried about him but we have been praying and hopefully they can find a cure.

At this point the doctors say that with the flesh eating disease that he had he is prone to infection in the tissue at the site and will have flare ups throughout his life. I am praying that God will take this infection away for good.

I will certainly say a prayer for D'Angelo...Patti, what is the history behind this infection? Did it just show up one day? Has he traveled abroad? I'm curious...the only flesh eating affliction I've ever heard about is associated with being bitten by a brown recluse spider...please enlighten me.

I'm lifting up prayers that D'Angelo will make a full and speedy recovery.
