Calling Out For Help!

Please peeps, keep my mom in your thoughts and prayers. She has been having severe pain in her leg the past few weeks and even with strong antibiotics, it is not improving. She cannot walk, she is in severe pain, has major swelling, and her skin is peeling off of her leg. Though she has been to three different doctors, none of them has been able to help. She called me this morning and is very sad as she is admitting that she may not be able to make the trip here for Kaeden's confirmation and Jari's First Communion. She simply cannot travel being as ill as she is. Today she is going to yet another doctor with the hopes of finding something to cure her (they think she may have a form of cellulitis, but it's not entirely clear and it's not healing from antibiotics). After researching on the internet, I told her to demand IV antibiotics. As much as I would hate for her to have to give up the trip here, I am mainly just really worried about her. I just want her to be better, able to walk, and not in agonizing pain. So, send along any positive vibes you can...first for her health, and secondly that she is well enough to make the trip overseas. Thanks!!!

I'm so sorry to hear this, sorry for your mom, sorry for you. Sounds like an infection and maybe IV antibiotics or a different one will do the trick.

Oh no!!! How awful. I hope that your mum gets a definite answer what is going on with her leg. It must be hard knowing that your mum might not be able to make it this weekend. We will keep her in our thoughts. Love, Amanda, Corné en Harry xox

my sister was diagnosed with cellulitis in her leg. She had gone to many doctors and finally went to the Mayo clinic. She had the symptoms you described and they put her on IV antibiotics immediately. They think it originated with an allergic reactin to some shoe material that caused breakdown of her skin on the foot...then it spread to full blown cellulitis. Her leg was swollen, red, itchy, hot, with skin lesions.
