New WHINE worthy moment - one of the screws in my right foot that is supposed to be in vertically has now shifted and is horizontal. It has to be surgically removed. My infection site had looked almost healed after the ten day course of antibiotics but two days later it turned red and angry looking again. I'm now on antibiotics for another 20 days. I'm scared to look at the third incision site just in case lol

Thanks for listening,

Started physical therapy this week and the therapist thinks my body is also reject my other screw. Yuck! He was able to stabilize both feet to lessen some of my pain.
Thanks for the prayers

Aaaargh! I hope things will soon begin to turn around. You've had more than enough of bad. Remember to eat yogurt daily while on antibiotics to get the good stuff back in your gut!

Dear Lee, I'm so sorry to read this news. I pray that your foot will soon be back to normal. Keep taking those AB's, love Chris

This sounds so familiar. These things happen - no fault of ours or the surgeons. Prayers being sent your way that this time the antibiotics get those little devils and all heals easily for you.

Please 'whine' away. You have every right to be upset. I'm so sorry another surgery is needed. It seems like you almost get to your feet and you are knocked down again. It sounds like we need to put you at the top of our Prayer Lists. Keep us informed and I hope this surgery goes well with NO infection or other issues.
