My wife developed an abcess in her cheek over the weekend that did not respond to the antibiotics prescribed to her last Monday. The doctor punted her over to the ER and she ended up being admitted to the hospital. They haven’t said it “out loud” but they are concerned that she has a MRSA infection (that’s the nasty ‘flesh eating’ virus you may have heard about in the news).
She has been receiving IV antibiotics and she told me this morning that they are going to surgically lance the abcess this afternoon. Hopefully that will relieve her discomfort (alright it’s PAIN) and she will get to come home soon.
Please pray for her today – and my family as well. I woke up this morning to my daughter sobbing; she had a nightmare that Mommy had died in the hospital and my daughter did not get the chance to say goodbye to her. I comforted my daughter and told her that it was just a dream, and she said “yeah, but it still hurts.”
