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.
“The infection actually ate thru my incisions down to the bone till it was visable!!!Straight out of a horror movie !!!” she shared. “I could of lost my leg or possibly my life.”
Baltimore added, “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.”
Wishing you a speedy recovery, Charli!
