An Update from Dr. Mutulu Shakur

DEAR FAMILY, FRIENDS, AND COMRADES

I JUST GOT OUT OF THE HOSPITAL TODAY, I HAD TWO OPERATIONAL PROCEDURES
ON MY FOOT. THANK GOD THAT THEY SAVED MY LIMBS. I AM ON THE MEND, WHICH
WILL TAKE ABOUT 3 MONTHS, PLEASE SEND OUT THE WORD FOR THOSE WHO HAVE
BEEN TRYING TO CONTACT ME BY EMAIL OR OTHERWISE.

WHAT HAPPENED, I WAS BITTEN BY A BROWN RECLUSE; UNBEKNOWNST I TOOK A
SHOWER AND CAUGHT A STAPH INFECTION. THE MEDICAL STAFF, LEANING TOWARDS
A DIABETES CONDITION OR GOUT, FAILED TO ADMINISTER ANTIBIOTICS UPON MY
FIRST EXAMINATION. IT TOOK THEM WEEKS TRYING TO ELIMINATE ALL THE
POSSIBILITIES TO THEIR SATISFACTION FOR THEM TO SEND ME TO THE HOSPITAL.

I SPENT APPROX. 18 DAYS IN THE HOSPITAL, THEY WERE LEANING TOWARDS
AMPUTATING MY LEG ABOVE THE KNEE. WE PUSHED FOR A 24 HOUR, 5 DAY
INTRAVENOUS REGIME. IT PUSHED THE INFECTION DOWN TO THE FOOT AND
OPERATIONS BEGAN TO SAVE THE FOOT.

I ALSO FOUND OUT WHILE IN THE HOSPITAL THAT I WAS BEING OVER MEDICATED
AND WAS MISDIAGNOSED ON THE STATUS OF MY DIABETES.

LIKE I ALWAYS SAY I AM AN ALLIGATOR, I LIVE IN MUD OR WATER, AND THE
FIRE IS STILL BURNING IN MY BELLY, BUT I CAN’T LIE THIS WAS A ROUGH ONE,
THIS IS ONE TIME THAT I THANK ALLAH FOR THESE SLAVE FEET(*_~)

STIFF RESISTANCE
