~*Update On How I'm Doing*~

I had surgery on Feb 25TH a week later I saw the ortho surgeon for my 1 week checkup and I found out that I fall under the small percentage of people who’s body rejects foreign objects.(Forewarning picture below if you have a queasy stomach don't look)
I have a severe infection from the bone marrow implant so I have been taking a really strong antibiotic and rinsing with a special rinse since then.
I have 5 more days of taking the antibiotics then he will let me know whats next.
The infection broke things down so my jaw is open the bone exposed.
Since the area wont close do to the infection it really burns and hurts alot so he gave me stronger pain medicine but they only take the edge off so I knit alot so that I'm focusing on something other then the tension and pain in my jaw and neck.
I will continue to stay on my yogurt,jello,soup meal plan until the hole in my jaw closes my husband said it looked a little bit better.Hugs Darcy

Oh gosh, even a poor baby doesn't cover that!!! You will be in my prayers. Here's hoping for a quick-er healing.

So, so sorry that you are going thorough all of this. Pain is a horrible thing. Glad at least that knitting seems to be helping a bit. How about knitting and cute movies to help ease your discomfort. The Proposal is great fun. You are in my thoughts,
Meredith
