Will you join me?

I would be so grateful if you would join me in prayer for my Mom...

As many of you know, she had a critical health event on December 21st...one that the doctors did not believe she could or would survive. But she did. However, she came home with some wounds that needed addressing.

I don't want to go into detail here, but suffice it to say that the care she received was less than stellar, despite my best efforts.

Thankfully, 2 of the 3 wounds have now healed. But she is left with one on her left heel that is of great concern. Today she was seen by a friend and former coworker of mine who is a Nurse Practitioner and Certified Wound Specialist in the wound center of a local hospital. She is concerned because one of the pulses indicating blood flow to that foot is quite weak - in fact, it is undetectable without the use of Doppler. My Mom is experiencing pain as well which leads to concern of osteomyelitis, infection in the bone(s) of her foot.

Will you please stand with me in prayer that there is no osteomyelitis and that the wound - with proper care - will begin its healing path...

Thank you, my friends.

Not stellar care in a US hospital. That's not right. I'll be praying.
