Regarding my friend's wife in the hospital with a nasty bacteria. I finally talked to Kerry last night. She has had 3 surgeries total and is in the burn ward now, as they have to do skin grafts on her. Basically what happened is she stopped taking care of her diabetes, she quit taking her pills. She got a sore on her tailbone and didn't care for it properly. Then she started running fevers and vomiting. When she was admitted to the hospital her blood sugar was 438! So her body became quite weak and couldn't fight the infection. Now she says her back looks like she got run over by a truck! It was a hard and painful lesson she learned about taking care of herself and going on a diet. She will be in the hospital another month or so- they can't keep her sugar down. But thank you for your prayers. It was not a flesh eating bacteria, but they equate it to the same thing according to her.
