Rapper Charli Baltimore is in our prayers after contracting a rare bone infection following surgery for a broken leg. 

Baltimore has been sharing the journey on Instagram, which began in August when she first went to the hospital for surgery on her leg. 

"Been In surgery all day ...finally done.2 metal plates,a rod and numerous screws," she wrote. 

Still, things seemed to be going well. Baltimore joked with her doctor and shared a photo the next day of her new boot, "My surgeon got jokes....I told him I have a shoe addiction pre surgery and since it'll likely be close to a year before I'm fully able to walk properly ...he said he gave me a red bottom cast."

However, Baltimore is back in the hospital after contracting a rare bone infection and the rapper says she's had to undergo four additional surgeries and a blood transfusion.

My current situation ...having to have IV antibiotics at home thru a special picc IV in my arm that connects into my chest and nurses coming to my house everyday after just spending 22 days in the hospital...undergoing 4 additional surgeries back to back and a blood transfusion after getting a super rare bone infection, that according to statistics only 2 out of 10,000 people that have had surgery on a broken bone contract....The infection actually ate thru my incisions down to the bone till it was visable!!!Straight out of a horror movie !!!my post is not for sympathy but only to say I could of lost my leg or possibly my life ..and it’s wild that during those 22 days in the hospital ..people I met maybe once or twice were more worried and checkin on me than some people I’ve helped or known all of my life ...of course my day 1’s were there but it’s funny how people disappear when you’re in potentially the worst situation of your life.So Thank u to everyone that showed me they cared and also thank u to everyone that I would have expected to care but didn’t cause you taught me a valuable lesson.....people’s need of u and love for you can change depending on the circumstances and The real ones will show u what u truly mean to them when ur at your most vulnerable so keep your circle small and tight.... S/o to all my nurses and asst.nurses at Kennedy hospital ....all u guys were the best and kept my spirits up😘😘😘 of course the docs too but I was in there so damn long I got mega cool with all my nurses lol
