9:30pm — Update from Dee…
Eagle has a seriously infected leg. They are planning on multiple IV antibiotics for some time to come hence he will be having a central line placed in the next day. I am hoping the red above the knee is do to serious inflammation and not infection but new cultures were taken today and he will know for sure in 48 hours. He is in quite a bit of pain however, he is now getting medication that will help him in this area.
However, the good news is that he is “with the program.” He is conversant and even has a sense of humor. That means alot in these situations. He cannot believe all the well wishes. Last night, when he was having trouble sleeping he was able to read most of them. he is so grateful for the support. He kept saying it was “unbelievable.” He loved the visit from “Leila.”She brought him train magazines. Eagle is a model train aficionado.
I will spend the morning with him and see how things go.

8/2/12, 11:45am: Dee from Wartburg Watch is traveling to see Eagle at the hospital today. She called last night and asked for prayers for wisdom and discernment as she tries to help our friend. Please join us in seeking the Lord for his guidance, direction, and continued manifestations of his loving, healing power.
Her comrade, Deb, and her family will be in D.C. this weekend and will also be visiting.
BTW, Eagle left a few comments over at Wartburg Watch during times when he could not sleep last night. He hasn’t lost his sense of humor. However, the mere mention of the word “catheter” is enough to make me cringe.
