    with flesh eating disease. She is very heavy and has type2, which the surgeon said will work against her. She has been given a 50/50 chance- today is the second day and she is alert. Surgury was lastnight. It was only in fat/flesh, and did not go at time of surgury to organs or stomach wall. My son has anxiety disorder and is too scared to go today to see her again even thouh surgeon and family dr said its ok, just no touching.

    She seems to be stable, and her wound looks good (according to surgeon). They keep it covered with plastic, but it is just a huge gaping thing, inner/top thigh is gone, and huge chunk from side to back on the abdomen.

    It is literally hour to hour, as infection can reappear. Yesterday/today are tests to determine the exact bacteria.

    If all goes well she will be in the hospital 2-3 months. But she actually likes the hospital and food, so not as bad as sounds.

    I should clarify I have 2 mil`s. My dh is adopted. This is his birth mom. We have known them for last 7yrs and spend holidays ect xmas with them. I feel so bad for his sisters, as my dh is their only relative not over 50. My fil has kidney failure, and his grandma is in late 80`s. If his mom dies, his sisters will only have 3 living relatives.

    I am scared to go now too, now that Ive been thinking about it. But dr`s and our gp say it`s fine. We wear gowns/masks/booties.

    Thankyou all and pls keep hoping for her.

    I understand about being scared and it is ok to be. This is a scary thing, and we hear all kinds of horror stories about it. If I were in your shoes, I would be scared also , and I just want you to know that.

    She continues to improve. She has a vaccuum thing on her abdomen/side/thigh to keep air out and heal. No more masks and gowns, just no touching and wash wash wash. She is bored so that`s a good sign. Thanks to all. And thx Lee, I really felt kinga like a jerk, but I am worried about getting it, not to mention my child.

    Thank you everyone. She is doing "well" considering everything. She is beyond the hour by hour prognosis, and the surgeon says her wound looks good. At first they wouldn`t say anything hopeful. So that is good news.
