I am still here.

July 26th, 2016 at 02:50 pm

Yes, I am still here, but I have not been posting much lately. I was in the hospital 3 times in April. I have gangrene in my left foot and it is very painful to walk. I had surgery to try and improve the circulation in my left leg, but so far, not much luck.
Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers. (And if you have any advice on gangrene, please let me know. Iwas completely surprised.

    So good to hear from you, Julie. You may wish to ask your docs about hyperbaric oxygen therapy for gangrene. In the meantime, you are in my thoughts and prayers for a full and comfortable recovery.

    Hi Imasaver glad you're still here! Many years ago my late father broke his foot when he was run over by a slow moving forklift. It took a long time to heal because they found gangrene. He wouldn't rest which hindered the healing. Eventually he spent time resting but he had to go back to hospital to get the gangrene cut out and he had a skin graft and that was the end of it. Please get lots of rest! (My father was a very heavy smoker which caused complications)

    Sherry, I have heard of the oxygen therapy. My problemis, I have not been able to lay down (to sleep) in over 4 months. I have to sit up and keep my left foot on the ground. That makes the oxygen therapy almost impossible.
