Last Tuesday, my almost 89 year-old mother was admitted to the hospital for cellulitis (an infection of the skin) for the second time in two months. Last time the infection was staph, which spreads slowly and was treated with anti-biotics. She tested positive for MRSA (a virulent, and antibiotic-resistant infection), but it was not found in her blood.

This time, she had a strep infection, which progresses rapidly, and made it into her bloodstream. She was moved to ICU on Wednesday, because her blood pressure dropped to 60/40.

She responded nicely to anti-biotics for the strep, but it left her even weaker. In addition to congestive heart failure, she has some asthma and diabetes, so the doctors have to walk a very thin line to figure out how to treat her. She is in Piedmont Hospital in Atlanta, and I have to say the doctors, nurses and staff have been outstanding.

Today my sister told me a scratch on her face has tested positive for staph, so here we go again.

Your help with some divine intervention would be appreciated.

I've heard there is a correlation to increased staph and strep infections among diabetics, so managing that may help decrease the incidence of this sort of thing. They also need to deal with why she is in congestive heart failure, if it is due to a heart abnormality, or increased stress from her pulmonary functioning. Asthma puts a strain on the heart, does she have pleural effusion causing the congestive heart failure?

Sending out healing, comforting prayers for your mom and you and the rest of your family, Alan Those staph infections can be pretty messy ... hoping your mom has a medical staff on her side whose hands and hearts and minds are blessed with healing powers.
