October 5, 2010

As you might have gathered from the lack of posting, we have had several days of stability. Mom's fevers have been low and controlled. She has been much more relaxed and appears to be in less pain. Though the cultures did come back positive for one of the bacterias, the doctors have exchanged her medicine and are now using a bleach based cleaner for her leg (the focal point of the bacterial issue). They hope to have the bacteria completely cleared by the end of this week and possibly begin the EZ Derm application. Just as with every other step of this process, we must "wait and see". In comparison to former days, however, she is consistently stable and the amount of rest that she is able to get has also increased.

Though Dad had hoped to be healing a bit quicker, the doctors say it will take a bit longer than he had anticipated. He is, however, doing wonderfully considering the circumstances.

Thank you all for your continued support and may you have a wonderful evening!!
