Need a little help...
A few days later there was a little redness and now it's warm to the touch. Some of you can already see where this is headed. These are signs of infection. What's strange is that the signs aren't always there. Renee and I are hopeful but, I need prayers now more than ever that the infections do not come back and, if they are coming back, that they go away. The pieces of my life are finally starting to fall back into place and I cannot accept another setback on the scale of the last bout with infections.
There is a doctor in the Orthopedics department at Wishard who thinks the symptoms sound like Cellulitis. So, he has prescribed an anti-biotic for me to take orally for the next week and I have an appointment to see him and Dr. Mckinley (the doctor who performed the first Irrigation and Debridement surgery in May) next Tuesday. With luck this Anti-biotic will do the trick.
In regards to walking, I got the new sockets on Monday. The right one fits perfectly. The left still leaves a lot to be desired. They took new measurements today and I'll probably get the replacement on Thursday. Speaking of Thursday's, right now it seems like I have more info for all of you on Thursday's. How would you feel if I waited until Thursday's for the update?

I'm back in Virginia Beach now. It was so good to see you this weekend - The kids were excited to see your picture taken at the reunion.
I will be thinking and praying for you tomorrow - I hope you get good news. Know that your family and friends are here for you always and will support you however possible through whatever the future brings.
Hi. It's Jerry Johnson's niece Niki. I've been meaning to stop by here but just now got around to it. It seems like you are doing pretty decent for the most part, which I am glad to hear!! We both know it's slow going -all we can do is hang in there day by day. I continue to pray for you and your family. Please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me anytime you want to chat. Take Care -Niki
Thursdays will get it for me. I'm just glad that you're well enough to keep giving us information about how you're doing. I also wanted to let you know to hang in there with the infection issue. The infection that I had (and they tried to get rid of) for over a year is finally gone from my finger (what's left of it anyway) and from my bloodstream. I hope this gives you hope that getting rid of infection - even BAD ones - can and do happen!!
