Thank you IC.
This is the front porch of our forum. Pull up a chair, and talk about whatever's on your mind.
How tremendously frustrating this must be for you. I agree, with the others, just do what you can.icfrugal1 wrote: ↑Sat May 23, 2020 2:29 pmso things are not very well right now.
to put the prostic on first goes a nylon, then a jell sleeve, then a stocking , the trouble is that his "insigen" (wound) needs air still, it's not fully healed,
The surgeon DID approve the prostic but.
Now on his right foot, (perhaps because of new walking) has blisters, NOT GOOD !!!
So he has seen the foot DR, and we have nurses coming in again.
DH is fighting everything that he is suppose to do, and LYING to the Dr's nurses. YES, when I can I tell them that he's not telling the truth. BECAUSE I CARE !!!
So DH is getting an RX for diabetic shoes, he is seeing a foot dr . IF had had been seeing a foot Dr I don't think that he would have had the gangrene in his foot and he would have the foot. He was offered all of these services, but he refused, as things were getting worse with unhealing wounds, he cancelled appts
He MUST NOT walk, (or as little as possible to the bathroom ONLY) he is back in the wheelchair and no walker.
He MUST have his legs up for most of the day 20/24 hours a day at least. He just WON'T, he got up at 7am this morning and just now at 11:30am I got him to put his legs up
He doesn't want to die, but he won't help himself.
Thank you again.
PS AAAUUUGGGGG !!!!!!
I’ll pray for you too. ((Hugs))
