Another Setback. and Some good news.

Well Hobbie had to have another operation (this makes 4 since the initial surgery on Jul 4th). They opened up both incisions and cleaned them out again to get the infection mostly out, then "cemented" beads of antibiotic to the bone and closed up the wound. In addition they strengthened the oral antibiotics that she is getting. Each time she has to go under the knife it sets her recovery back another six weeks.

On the good news side:

-She has lost 70 lbs since Jun 28th.
-Her kidneys are working somewhat betterly and she has moved to a dialysis schedule of every other day instead of daily.
-She has been taken off the strict Renal diet and placed on the Diabetic one which results in more flavor and palability.
-Starting next week she will be allowed to sit up in a separate chair and might possibly be allowed to try to stand on her good leg. (No weight on the healing leg will be allowed for at least another month or more).

Next update: Midweek.
