Day 7-Chris update

<sigh> 2 of Chris' internal medicine doctors said that they do not feel that Chris is improving. The redness has stopped subsiding and it appears to have hit a plateau. No reduction in swelling since day one. Extreme pain. The doctor is going to try to get all of the doctors together with the Chief of Medicine to try to brainstorm and figure this out. The MRI results showed a bad infection and they tossed around the idea of necrotizing fasciitis but decided against that. The doc said that he should have already responded fully to the antibiotics by now since he's had the strongest ones. PICC line is in place. Praying for a solid diagnosis and a plan of action. My mom made it and had a great flight but she's jet lagged. She got here just in time, honestly.

Please continue to pray!  He's not out of the woods yet.  

Love and Hugs!


  1. Continuing to pray for him and your family.

  2. I'm so relieved that your mom is there. I'm praying for healing and pain relief for Chris.


Tell us what'cha think!
