I wanted to give to you an update regarding My Beloved. On the first day of our vacation to Disneyland with our grandson, his parents, and our adult daughter Stephanie, Heidi’s left leg was invaded by a super-aggressive infection. I took her to urgent care and despite a cocktail of three aggressive antibiotics, including some administered via IV, her leg from ankle to knee was completely affected and unrecognizable, and the massive infection was taking over her leg at a rate of about six to eight inches per day.
It turns out she is also allergic to one or more of the antibiotics, and the rest of her body (except her face) is now completely covered in huge welts and lumps. When they tried taking her off of some of the antibiotics the healing stopped but the allergic reaction didn’t. She’s been seen by five doctors and two nurse practitioners, including related specialists, in SoCal and NorCal. I believe there is no longer much risk of Heidi losing her leg, but we’re closely monitoring the situation.
Oh my…Russ, I am so sorry to hear of Heidi’s condition. I am encouraged that she probably won’t lose her leg but understand she is still in a serious state. My prayers are with you and your family. Thank you for the update…looking forward to some improvements in the future. Hang in there, Heidi! ❤ ❤
Thank you for your kind message and prayers, Mrs P.

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers, Beth.
Please keep us posted when you can
Thank you for the reminder, Beth. I’ve got a lot of balls in the air and you’re welcome to remind me again for updates in case I forget. The latest is that after several days the results of third blood culture must have been received by her doctor because Heidi just got a call requesting a visit from the doc today.
Thank goodness the danger of Heidi losing her leg is no longer a worry. Still. Not fun. Ouch.
Prayer and more prayers sent your way. ❤ ❤
Thank you prayers, Tess. You’re right, not fun indeed.
