Here is some detailed information in Arlene's own words:
To all of you who have been asking and wondering. It is day 8 of being here today. Its been a real horrible time and who'd of ever thought one day you're fine the next day your being told by a surgeon with tears in his eyes that you are being rushed into surgery for a life or death infection and chances are I may not make it but he will do his best. He said a prayer and then from what I understand before and after that, it was just like tv...stat..room 1 stat...rodney had trouble keeping up with the surgeons running to the or. He said they were fast ttrack and ready. One day you are fine, then a pimple pops backwards, and turns into something that is a flesh eating infection you can not get out of w/o surgery. I was so close to death it has never been closer. I now truly know who my real friends and family are and those are the ones who care and took the time to find out if I was going to live or not. I may go for more surgery today, 3rd time in this 8 days. I am still going to be here could be a month or more, then off to rehab and who knows what is going to be thrown my way after. I am petrified, the pain is something I dont wish my worst enemy..but to all my LO family, you truly have shown me what it means to care about someone. I felet the love the prayers and friendshiip, I hope to be out of here soon but not sure what soon is anymore. I know that life is so much more then what I gave credit to. I thank everyone and will continue to keep you posted.
