We Interrupt This Poem...

Please lift up prayers for my hubby Mike, who is in the hospital overnight with some kind of weird infection.

He has what was thought to be cellulitis (infection of the skin) on the side of his face, which was accompanied by flu-like symptoms of fever, chills and achiness, but now they're not sure what it is.

His doctor put him on antibiotic pills yesterday, but it looked like it was inching toward his eye today, so I took him to the ER. They quickly put him in "observation" overnight, with an IV drip of strong antibiotics. It's important that the infection not reach any soft tissue (like the eye) so that it doesn't travel to the brain.

So please pray that God will keep that from happening, and that the infection will be significantly reduced by morning. He has a compromised immune system, thanks to the arthritis treatment he's been receiving for years.

Thank you so much for praying! I'll keep you posted (so to speak).
