This is Franny, a young 8 year old child who is in the hospital for one to two weeks for a severe leg/bone infection. Her infection has gone on for almost two years and she now needs an antibiotic drip and four or five surgeries to scrape the bone to remove the infection. The doctors are guarded in their prognosis as this infection is so severe. She has serious bone loss due to this prolonged infection. There is a possibility of amputation to save her life if the treatment is not effective. So, your thoughts and prayers are definitely needed and appreciated.
