Merry Christmas from Singapore Hospital?

Well it is not how we planned it but we all spent Christmas together at the hospital here in Singapore. If you read my previous post, I was dealing with a Staph infection in my right leg and well… it has lead me to stay in the hospital for 4 days and counting. After starting with it a week ago Friday (doctors think it was some kind of insect bite during the night)- after a progression of drugs from oral, to injection- it became evident that things were not progressing in the right (healing) direction. So I ended up being admitted to Raffles Hospital in Singapore (we have medical coverage that allowed for direct billing- thank goodness for that) to start IV antibiotics. Things are improving and I feel good for the most part. I am not sure when I am leaving exactly but I am hopeful for soon (although it is certainly not gone or healed). If Maya has anything to say about this- I am out of here ASAP!

Les and the girls came over to the hospital Christmas Eve during the day and evening to all spend it together. It is really the part that matters- that we are all together. We had our Christmas appies, Christmas lights, played some games, and played guitar and sang some songs while in a hospital room. Les and the girls brought everything via a cab! It was a lot of fun- as much fun as you can have in a hospital anyways. I am thankful that we are together and laughing throughout the evening! I hope your Christmas is filled with as much fun and laughter.

Merry Christmas to all of you! May the Lord Bless you and your families this season and New Year. Thank you to those of you that have been praying for me. I appreciate any I can get!
