That was not the exact ‘doctor-eze’ language he used but my translation of what one of Harriet’s doctors said when he looked at her leg Thursday morning. I told my son I wish I had the nerve to take a picture and send him of what his Mother is suffering, but it would make him sick. He agreed.
The incision from Harriet’s groin to 4 inches below here knee is infected and I’ll spare you even a word picture. But I will say it looks like pictures I’ve seen of wounded soldiers with tropical ulcers. And without the pain medications and gracious care of good nurses, I don’t know how she can endure.
The culture has come back showing E COLI infection as well as another type staff infection. The doctors feel that she can recover and the wound will heal but it will be a long and slow process.
I met both of our doctors this morning with “I just heard from the Lord and He said tell you He still loves Doctors. And I guess that’s not too surprising since He’s the Great Physician Himself”. I think Dr. Morris and Dr. Walker are always wondering how we’ll get on the subject but Harriet and I are convinced that one reason we are here is for these two doctor’s. They both desperately need our Lord. But they don’t know it.
Pray that our lives will be a living example and our words will be a clear testimony of God’s goodness and love. Please God, draw them to you!
