We've been settled at our semi-permanent location in Florida now since mid-August. Fall has arrived (according to the calendar), but daytime highs are still in the low 90s. Darlene is still recovering from her leg cellulitis wound and we're grappling with medical bills now. While we stay put until at least mid-December, I thought I'd [...]
I haven't updated you lately on Darlene's progress. We are settled in an RV park in Florida during her recovery. She is seeing a wound care specialty group now. They have placed her on a Wound Vac system which she will wear all the time until the wound makes progress. After one week of being [...]

Unfortunately, when we got home (to our RV), she was so weak, exhausted, and in pain that she couldn't climb into the motorhome. She got very little sleep during the hospital stay. We got a motel room (one [...]
Much progress has been made. They've found a combination of antibiotics which seem to be combating the leg infection. The doctors are starting to tentatively utter the "D" word (discharge!). Perhaps tomorrow. She's still on IV antibiotics, but they're looking at switching to oral forms. All the prayers are much appreciated. Day #7.
