Pray for Lisa

This little girl came to the hospital about 2 months previously and almost died due to the infection that had invaded her arm and chest wall.  She survived her initial hospitalization, but came back after continuing to have lots of pus drainage from her arm.  Her xray shows that she doesn't have much of a humerus left, it has been destroyed by the infection.  She had surgery to remove as much of the infection and dead bone that Jim could get.  Pray for Lisa, she has a long road ahead of her, and even then there is no guarantee that her arm is going to work again as the infection didn't just invade her bone, but the tissue around it, the muscles and nerves also.
