Health news-4-14-11

~~
Last Thursday Charles was doing some tractor work in the pasture...he was pushing up cut tree limbs into a pile for burning.  A tree branch flew up as he was working to maneuver the stuff where he needed it, hitting him across the shin. He said it was baseball bat  in size-and with the power behind it of that tractor wheel...

It's  been very bad...swollen and red...infected...a very deep bruise. Although the hit didn't even break the skin, the injury has erupted from inside. His leg from mid calf down is blue- except the red that spreads  several inches on all sides from the impact spot. He's  been in constant pain  since it happened.   He's on antibiotics and, hopefully, they will take care of the infection. He goes back to the doctor tomorrow and I hope and pray they can see a big improvement!

Just wanted to update for family and friends who care...

I didn't know that we could get infections that way. All the best, Charles.

Oh my gosh...I came by to see if you had done a themesong this week, and read this sorrowful news!! I do hope he'll be better by morning and the infection doesn't set in...oh my goodness, oh my goodness!!! Take care, both of you.

Oh good Lord Junie....I hope Charles' leg gets better very quickly. You just never know what strange things can happen. Infections can be crazy...I'm very glad he has been on that antibiotic. Big hugs to both of you...and special healing hugs to Charles. ~Joy

Thanks, friends,

Well, looks like he needs to be in the hospital and my daughter Tina suggested he wait until about 4:oo AM and go to the EM. She will be at work about 6:00 and can check on what's happening. They insist I don't need to go until later when he gets put in a room...but I might get up and go anyway.
The wound area is swollen much worse today. We're very concerned...
I'll post something again tomorrow.

Thanks all, for caring about us.

Love,

Junie
