Monday | from Jenn B

Please keep your prayers coming for Todd! Although he has made miraculous progress, he is still facing some major hurtles. He is fighting an MRSA infection in his largest wound, although word is that this is very common. He also still has several surgeries ahead.

A new concern also arose today: possible nerve damage in his left arm, which he has not been able to move since the accident. Leah is seriously worried about this. It may indicate a permanent injury. Leah is asking everyone to keep Todd in their prayers and send him positive energy to help heal his left arm.

The good news is that Todd is eating now, and in addition to bringing Leah food for herself and family we can bring food for Todd too! They are trying to get him eating lots of protein to heal fast. The only specifics I got were salad with cottage cheese or meat, although probably we won't need 10 of those! Sounds like the hospital food consists of canned vegetables and potatoes--not exactly designed to whet his appetite.

I'm sure any food you could contribute for Leah or Todd would be very much appreciated, and thanks to all of you who have helped so far. My impression is that it has been a big help for Leah to come home exhausted and know she can get a decent meal (and a glass of wine to unwind!). Please get in touch with me if you'd like to contribue and we can work out the timing.

Once Todd is able to fight off the infection Leah thinks he might be ready for visitors. Please continue to keep him in your prayers!
