I have been blessed many times over with the outpouring of love and friendship that you all have shown me!! My gratitude is deep and wide.
1) Dad is eating and sleeping well. He is regaining strength and even walking at times without his cane!!! Praise God! He is still having mental clarity issues but we will just keep praying for that one.
2) I went to see Penny yesterday evening. She has been transferred to a continued care facility back here in Lafayette. It’s good to have her close by so that I can see her.
Our visit was a tearful one. I was appalled at the condition of her legs and the 2 pump lines that are sucking out the poison from her groin and leg. The doctors in Indianapolis told her that she will have to be on the antibiotic IV for 6 weeks and then orally for 6 months.
She is a mess but, as I told her last night, at least she still has her legs and they didn’t have to amputate anything!! Although she is depressed, she knows this to be the truth.
Those doctors told her that there was so much plastic left in her that caused the sepsis and nearly cost her her life.
Even though she is not completely out of the woods yet, we know that God has heard our prayers and has His hand in this all.
Penny wanted me to say thank you for her to everyone who prayed for her. She is deeply touched!!
Please continue to keep her in your prayers.
That’s it for now, kids got places to be and are hurrying me up!
Love and hugs,
