    Hope the trip home is uneventful and everything works out well for your wife. Will keep you both in my thoughts and prayers.

    So sorry for you.
    Had some similar experience, my wife was kept in hospital for well over a week.
    Our travel insurance that we had via her work helped us recover the majority of the cost.
    This too helped. I spent all my time over the phone with insurers etc...
    Hope you make a safe return journey back home.

    I'm glad it's not as bad as it sounded like at first.

    Simon, I'm sorry to hear about your wife brother. With all of the help you 2 have offered to me and Mrs. Believer earlier this year, both of you hold a special place in both of our hearts. We will be lifting her in prayer for healing and you for patience, peace, as well as grace for you both.
    Please let her know that we are pulling for you two.

    Got nothin' but love for you two.

    Yeah, minor procedure to remove a corn on the side of one toe became infected about 3 months ago. Doctor prescribed some general antibiotics and declared all well. Still didn't seem quite right. Came off flight to Naples and H's right foot like a balloon. She took some antibiotics prescribed 'just in case' and the rest is misery! Just too general and too low dose.

    Early flight home tomorrow following injection in stomach, dressing to foot etc etc. Cost 200 euro taxi to Palermo. About 300 to fly home. Worth every cent!

    Sending wishes for a peaceful night, reduced swelling by morning, a safe flight home, and a speedy recovery. Hang in there brother Simon, you're a good man to keep calm and handle the business.

    When you have health problems you just want to be home.

    Glad you are on your way! :thumb:
