    DH has been on antibiotics for 2 toe wounds. Over the weekend he took a turn for the worse, with a diagnosis of sepsis (blood poisioning) and has been in the hospital since Saturday. This a.m. he had partial amputation of 2 toes, which I have been told were successful. Prayers for healing and resoluion of infection are deeply appreciated.

    I will also keep all involved in my thoughts and prayers. Obviously we all hope your DH has a speedy recovery but you have to take care of yourself during this trying time. The patient has numerous doctors and nurses caring for them, but oftentimes the loved ones get so concerned they do not eat or sleep themselves as needed. Take care of yourself and know he is in God's Hands and those of the medical professionals. God bless.

    Our prayers are with your husband.

    We have a friend who has been dealing with an infection on her ankle/foot for over three years. In and out of the hospital every couple of months. Very severe, but she's still fighting and unbelievably still has her foot. Be diligent and get as many second opinions as possible.

    Praying for your husband. My father dealt with something very similar a few years ago. Sepsis is very scary to hear, but I'm sure he is in great hands!

    Since my first post, DH has had 2 more hospitalizations. When I wrote the first post, he had been readmitted a 2nd time for sepsis and has the tips of 2 toes amped. The toes are healed, but he had 2 additional hospitalizations. He was in for 2 weeks with the toe amps, and went home for 5 days, before being readmitted with hospital acquired pneumonia. Stayed for over a week, and 7 days later, went back with dehydration, and compromised liver and kidney functions. That has all passed, and he is now in a rehab unit undergoing 3 hrs a day of physical and occupational therapy. He's working really hard, and is slowly but surely getting stronger. He is expected to come home on Sunday, and after that he will be going to outpatient PT & OT for a while. He has taken a 6 months leave of absence from his work.

    Needless to say, with all that is going on, we haven't planned any camping trips, and are hoping that he can camp come May.

    While he's had a few problems, he seems he might be feeling much better with the infection gone. You just MIGHT get to start your season right on time!! [A] [A]

    Good to hear that he is in recovery. Praying that he will be camping in May. The fresh air would be good for him as long as he can let others do the work.
