Sweet Meghan Linsey and her family have been through so much in the last few years.
If you remember, Meg was bitten on the face by a brown recluse spider back in February of 2017, and she suffered terribly in the following months as she worked to overcome the nerve pain and deal with the open wound on her face left by the venomous bite.
It was a nightmare for the singer, but now she’s focused on being there for her father, who has been dealing with health issues of his own.
Meg’s dad was hospitalized recently, and the singer took the time to update fans on how he is doing through a post on her Facebook page. And thankfully, the news is good!
“Thank you everyone for your prayers for my dad! He’s been in the hospital for almost [two] weeks and they were able to save most of his foot,” she writes. “I took him to my friend in South Carolina who is an infectious disease and wound care specialist, and I truly believe this was absolutely the best course of action. I’m flying there now to pick him up tomorrow. Very grateful for all the love. Xoxoxo.”
“Thank you for the update! We will keep praying!” one follower wrote Meg. Another fan offered up a prayer on Meg’s wall, as other comments and well wishes continue to pour in.
We can’t help but wonder if this may have been the same infectious disease and wound specialist Meg saw during her spider bite treatment. After her bite, Meg sought treatment from a toxicologist at Vanderbilt University in Nashville. But things were getting worse, so she headed to see a wound specialist in South Carolina, spending time in specialized hyperbaric chambers in a rather experimental way of treating her facial necrosis due to the bite.
It worked, and Meg’s wound began healing almost immediately. So, it makes sense that she might want her father to see the very people who set her on a true path to healing in her time of need.
Now, thanks to the treatments and the help of a product called Stratamed, Meg’s scar is almost invisible. This video was posted just before the first anniversary of the day she was bitten.
Wow! We are so happy to hear that the aftermath of the bite is so far behind her and that her father received good news from the doctors. We wish him all the best in his recovery.
