  •  MRSA (7+ / 0-)

    Please send all my best wishes and energy to Susan and Ed.  My husband had systemic MRSA in 2008.  He was in the hospital for 17 weeks and sustained a lot of physical damage which I will not detail because it still scares me to death and Susan is living her own nightmare now.

    Tell her that it may take many antibiotics or combinations of antibiotics to take the MRSA because it is a bacteria which became antibiotic resistant in the hospitals and is now out in the community.  My husband had an infectious disease specialist who finally used Vancomyacin and Gencomyacin in combination to kill it.  

    I am sure that Susan's doctor will find the right combination for Ed, but it is difficult for every MRSA patient and takes time.

    In the meantime I will ask God to hold them both in the light.  It is a Quaker prayer which asks that they have everything they want and need, offered with our hands  extended in kindness to them.

    I am caring for my husband now that he is home and I am so glad to have him back.  We have been married for over 35 years and he seems like a vital part of me

    Please keep us updated about Susan and Ed.  We would care even if we had not gone through MRSA, but having been there makes it even more immediate.
