Her arm is bright red, very swollen, and hot as a firecracker.  It is her lymphedema arm, so she needs your prayers that they can get some antibiotics going that will stop whatever is going on.  I told her it reminded me of Luci going to the clinic and the doctor arguing with her about her arm.  Didn't the same thing happen?  IV antibiotics?  I will let you know soon as I know more, I told her to be prepared to stay and call me and let me know.  I am very concerned.

My prayers of course for Jo-Ann...I hope she will be given some IV anti-biotics. You are right about Luci. She had a bee sting and wanted them to give her an anti-biotic  but the clinic Dr wouldnt..he wouldnt even listen to her and if I remember he knew nothing about Lymphedema. She ended up getting cellulitis  and had IV meds and then 10-14 days of K-flex. (Luci, I sure hope I got that right.)

Please keep us posted....
