Sorry it has taken so long to let everyone know what was going on but for awhile there it was touch and go. The doctors finally found an antibiotic that his system didn't reject and he's been taking it kinda like chemo treatments. It's made him very nauseated but it is fighting the infection. He is out of ICU but is still in isolation. The infection was caused by an air borne pathogen that somehow got into his system when a boil that he had on his knee burst. He is responding well to the treatments but from what my sister-in-law says after he is released he'll have to be very careful. The slightest cut or anything of that nature will have to be treated with the IV antibiotics that he is getting now. I do not know the name of the antibiotic but it is only given IV so I'm trying to find out what it is. They say it is one of the strongest antibiotics there is...Thanks everyone for the prayers and good wishes. Both I and Randy's family appreciate them very much...Like I've always said, you guys are the greatest family a girl could have...and I love ya all bunches.

Great to hear

Drug might be Vancomycin, which is used for MRSA & other antibiotic resistant infections as a last resort drug.
