A year from now!
Why? Because the head of infectious diseases at Moffitt explained it to us this way...
The infection can actually hide from the IV antibiotics, which Cindy will be on for the next 6 weeks.
If the infection doesn't appear during that six week period of time (which it still might), it does not mean it has been destroyed. The infection can begin to grow slowly inside the bone. If that does occur, it will likely re-appear within the next three months. Then again, a few strands could grow very slowly before they begin to become aggressive.
Therefore, it could be as long as a year before we can rest easy that the ordeal is over.
Again, this strain of infection is not deadly. More surgeries and further amputation of the leg may be required, but at least it is not life threatening.
Now that we all know the possibilities, please know we are not going to concern ourselves with what may be. Our focus is on that which we can control...enjoying each day. Worrying changes nothing, so why worry?
Have a great Monday! I know we will!!!
