My grandfather was diabetic and was an above the knee amputee. I wish the infection would stop so that your brother can then progress with the healing and adjustment.

Kim I am so sorry to hear your brother's problems continue. It's been a long haul. I will continue to hope that he gets better.

My eyes are still a bit swollen and bruised. I'm back at work. I've been there so long it's like family so I don't care that they see me. I'm not as happy with the look as I'd hoped but I can see better now.

Hi to everyone else!!!!!

Hope you're doing well, despite the swollen eye. Glad you can see better.

...you have no idea how much I wish for the same thing....the doctor is doing all he can to try to save as much of his foot/leg as possible....with amputees, the risk of death within 5 years increases by 50%! [...he's only 51.... ]

Despite appearances, you must have been in a really bad way.....

That's a tough call. Do you let him undergo multi surgeries or do you clear out the infection?

My grandfather had a lot longer than 5 years; but still passed away far too young.

I'll be thinking of y'all and will light a couple of candles when I'm next in church.

...my DSis and I visited our brother today, at the hospital. He was in really good spirits and even sat up with his legs dangling from the side of the bed. They even removed the wound-vac, since the gaping hole in his foot is 'almost completely filled in' [ ]...it seems that the MRSA and other infections are more under control too, but he still is on intravenous. He also still needs to have a knee-replacemnt surgery, but that's on the back-burner for now...

...thanks...he certainly could use them....I'm not so sure that I would have been so optimistic if I were in his situation...
