I am alive and a little better, I went to the hospital again, and I WILL live!!! The infection had spread to the skin, and is now cellulitis.... what ever that is. The Er doc and the local hospital had even mentioned gangrene, and that wigged me out pretty bad, but things didn't get worse over night and the fever didn't go up.... so we will wait and see. I just spent 1 hr on the phone with windstream to finally get my dsl working again. So I will be on and off for a while. I really want to thank everybody for your thought and prayers and well wishes, it means a lot to me!!! You guys really are the best. I will keep in touch!
