Medical Update On Youngest Daughter...

At the Friday return visit to doc, they decided to readmit Maria to the hospital.  They were not happy with the way things looked.  We've been unable to see the wound since the first surgeries because they put a cast on each time. She had surgery Saturday and more today. The doctor has left the wound open with a wound vac.  The problem in her chest has been resolved so she is in less pain.

It will soon be a month since the accident.

Thank you for your continued prayers and healing thoughts.

I do hope they kept her in hospital until there is some headway on this wound that seems to have gotten a lot worse. I don't understand why the cast had to cover the wound. That part should have been open to get cleaned and air. I'm glad to hear that they are doing that now. Oh dear Gail, I will be thinking of Maria and praying that the leg begins to heal and I am happy to hear she is in less pain. Please know I am thinking of you all . lol

Oh my . . . such a "trip" this has been . . .
Hug her from me, won't help much but let her know I am caring about her having to endure this dreadful time!

This has really been a rough go for her and all of you. I do hope the new method works better and brings relief. Will continue keeping her in my prayers.

Perhaps now the wound will heal without a cast. I have to wonder if casting it caused bacteria rather than exposing it but hey, who am I? Great news on her chest wound...:)JP

So sorry to hear she is still having issues with this. I hope it all resolves soon- still have her in my prayers.

Sandy said...

Having the cast off may make the difference with healing. Keeping your daughter, you, and family in my prayers.

At the time you talked about it, I wondered about them enclosing a wound in a cast. Usually they want fresh air on wounds. Maybe they left an opening of some kind.

I do hope this will be her last surgery and she begins the healing process again. My thoughts are with you all.
