I contracted MRSA while in the hospital.
Yesterday my doctor did a mini procedure to dig this awful flesh eating bacteria out of my body. It is a very aggressive bacteria as the first day I had a few black pin size spots on me, the next it was a half dime size patch that was black and the next day, it was a half dollar size. I didn't know what it was at first, but I remembered hearing about MRSA and looked at some pictures on the internet and knew to go to the Dr. right away.
If you don't know exactly what this bacteria is and what it does, please take some time to educate yourself, because I know from experience that within a matter of days, you will begin to be eaten alive by it. I understand that one out of ten who contract this bacteria will die from it. I laughingly told my family last night I'd prefer better odds, but....Im trusting the Lord for His Will, and honestly, Im ok, no matter what happens.
Please continue to pray that the Lord watch over me and that His Will be done in my life and in the lives of my family. It has been difficult on my husband and daughter, as this has been going on for months now, so I also ask that you pray for their continued patience and perseverance. Thank you for your prayers.
