Bill had the second surgery today instead of yesterday. His Orthopedic Surgeon wanted to be able to do it himself. The decision was made to remove all the hardware from his leg, they flushed his leg completely again and they found that the bone is still not well healed! So without the hardware to give it stability, he won't be able to walk. He has been diagnosed with MRSA, and the infection is pretty deep into the bone and tissues. So when he comes home Thursday, we will be having Home Health Care come to administer antibiotics and a couple of times a day. It could take several months for the infection to be completely eradicated and when he is clear then we're looking at more surgery to do something to stabilize that bone again.
The children and I are holding here together at the house. It's pretty tough having to handle it all by myself, but Jordan is being a real trouper. He helps me as much as possible (remember he's only 5) and the girls, well, their 2 1/2 year olds. At least they have each other to play with, but it keeps me hopping.
Thank everyone for your continued love and support and prayers. I'm pretty weary and find myself near to tears most of the time, but I'm still breathing, so I'm alive, which means there's hope.
