Re: Need some prayers
We will pray for her also, we wish her a speedy recovery.
My younger brother just went through this very same thing last winter. He was working on a construction site and stepped on a nail. The nail almost went through his foot it was so long. Teatnus was not a problem, so they cleaned it and just let it heal.
Puncture wounds create a problem with healing, which is one of the reasons triangular bayonets were outlawed in wartime at the early part of the last century.
Well, the puncture wound healed over and got infected, which is very easy to do. Apparently the wounds are supposed to be kept open and allowed to heal very slowly. He tried taking antibiotics for it, but his bone got infected. It was at this time they found out he has Ostio Porosis. He then had to take antibiotics by IV, and 3 times a day for 2 months. It was a hard road, because the IV had to be self-administered exactly at the right time or he had to start over. Well, to throw a monkey wrench into it (our family never does things the easy way), he developed a reaction 1/2 way through the medication, so they had to change it on him. Well, it took 3 months to cure, but he is fine now and back to normal. He is also taking calcium supplements for the Osteo Pososis, and he's only 29.
Without the puncture wound, no one would have known he had the bone disease, so there is a bright side, even if we don't know what it is in the beginning.
We will keep her in our nightly prayers and wish her a speedy recovery.
