Well-I've got bad news.
Yesterday morning-Sam woke up with a temp. I thought he had a bug. By the end of the day- he was burning up and I noticed the graft site on his foot looked red.
I brought him down to John's Hopkins last night--and his foot continued to swell--the his leg swelled-and he was burning up. They were preparing me that he might need surgery last night to open the graft-clean it out- and then start over.
Thankfully--after they started the antibiotics--the infection stopped spreading. (It had been going up his leg) After a long and scary night--he is now doing well and has been mostly fever free today.
His Plastic surgeon said that he would wait a few days to let the drugs work--and if they do-we are home free. If they don't it means there is an underlying infection and they will need to find it's source. I am praying for the former-and am hoping we will be home by Sunday.
This is just too much for him. He is scared, mad, and confused. Frankly--so am I.
I just don't understand how after all he has been through--this could be happening now-when we were so close to recovery.
I am going to have faith that he will be fine-and no surgery will be needed. I would love some prayers or good thoughts sent our way for healing and strength.
At the moment--this scripture is holding me together--
"I can do everything through Him who gives me strength"
