In November I had to have surgery on my knee for something that was torn in it. I was starting to fall down allot. The surgery did not go as planned and the wound became infected. I had to have 3 more surgeries since then to try to scrape the infected tissue out and flush the knee with cleaners.I came close to dying one night in the hospital. The doctors are not exactly sure what kind of infection it is, but they think it is a staph infection. They have me on some really strong antibiotics. My body is just not responding like it should. I just got out of the hospital a few days ago and I will be on IV's for six more weeks.I could not stay at the hospital any longer because our insurance would not let me. I am still fighting to save the leg. My husband has had to take off work to take care of me. I can't walk or even move the leg. I could really use some board magic, I have been out of work for quite some time and these medical bills are really going to hurt. I am working so hard to get some of the use of my leg back, but the pain is so terrible. If anyone can spare a prayer I sure could use it to help me get back on my feet.
