Not much progress but still trying

The latest progress report is that Lewis is running a bit of fever, and is on more antibiotics. The discharge from the wound is clearing, and he is using the leg. However, radiographs from earlier in the week did not show any appreciable bone re-growth. Some dead bone and another broken screw will need to be removed, but due to the possibility that the leg could still break, surgery for this will have to wait.We are now praying that Lewis can keep fighting, and begin to see some bone re-growth. Once enough bone replacement has occurred, further debridement of the dead tissue will be required to completely clear the infection. We hope he can keep holding on during this painfully slow recovery.
