Welcome to Anne's blog!

If you are new to the blog, you probably want to start at the beginning of the whole sad story. To get there, use the "Blog Archive" tool in the right column of the blog and click on "2009," and then "January 25." From there you can continue to click on each week to see the weekly entries.

It sounds like everything is set up for me to go home early next week IF THE INFECTION INSIDE MY LEG HAS BEEN WIPED OUT.  Dr. Carbonell took a culture from the inside of my foot tonight and will begin incubating it immediately.  If after three days, NO bacteria grow from that culture, they can safely assume that the infection is gone and send me home.  I would covet your prayers that the infection has indeed been killed off by the intense amount of antibiotics I have been taking this week.

Doug and I are learning to live day to day and to be thankful for each hour that passes.  We know that there are going to be many bumps and trials along the way.  We just hope that we can handle this situation with grace and joy.  This really shouldn’t be too hard to do because we have already been given so much to be thankful for.  My fall from the ladder could have been so much worse—and if the worst that happens is that I lose my foot or walk with a cane for the rest of my life—so be it. 

Please continue to pray for our dear girls.  They are being such troopers but sometimes the intensity of this situation gets to be too much.

I will continue to update this blog as my journey towards healing continues! 

With much love,
