L.O.N.G day ~^~

I've been home for a little over an hour, and although I am tired, I thought I should blog and let you know what is going on. I went to the Hospital this am before 7 wanting to be there for the surgeon visit. As it turned out, he came at almost 7 pm!! ...

The Surgeon came in looked at Bill, and did not hide his surprise at what he saw, Bill is really scared, He kept saying...did you see the look Dr. B---- gave me? Bill has the absolute most severe degree of infection on/in his face. We know that it is Staph, there is now just a small chance that it is MRSA, as two of the primilary reports came back staph only, they still have to wait until the final comes back to officially say whether he has/ or doesn't have MRSA. He needs two IV doses of Vancomyicin before he goes to Surgery tomorrow morning.... The doctor didn't hide the fact that this infection was/is severe enough to get into his brain, Thank GOD it has not, and he is on so many antibiotics to keep it at bay. The plan of action is to open his face up...... remove the infection and any dead tissue, and pack the face, the area will be kept open, and let to heal from the inside out...........Many prayers are appreciated., Bill is really scared about tomorrow........ and I just want him to have peace! I will keep you posted, now a bath and bed for me.

Thank you so much for your prayers

I love you guyz too! Please know that I am keeping you in my prayers. I am so sorry Bill has to go through this pain and fear. Your kids are wonderful. It is really nice to see your kids really do know how to do things around the house when the things go hay-wire. Then when things settle down and you are home they will act like they have no idea what a broom is for other than to use for the Halloween Witch to fly on! Or at least that is how it is at my house. Hang in there! know we love and care about you all.
