Hello Everyone....

Oh my goodness, not sure where to start..................

My husband is a diabetic, and he has been having problems for the last few years. He has had several cath's, adding stent's, balloon...s.............

About 2 months ago he had a blood clot in his left leg, and it did a lot of damage, they did 2 cath's on two consecutive days trying to get the blood flow going and hoping that the small veins in the toes would open up in time, but they did not.

Yesterday they did another cath, and no luck. He has no blood flow in his left foot.

They told us the horrible news that he is going to have to have his foot amputated. I balled my eyes out of course, trying to grasp all the things that we had been told and what needs to be done. Of course, if it doesn't happen, he will eventually lose his life.

He is set to have surgery June 10th, was so hoping it would be this next week for many reasons.
1. Do not want it to get worse and cause more problems.
2. It is best so my daughter can help and be there...because her classes start the 11th.
3. Less time for my husband to have to worry and think about it for so many days in advance....
4....Many other reasons...sooner the better..................

So life for me is going to be different from now on.....but more so for my dear husband....Bless His Heart!

Please keep us in your prayers, I so appreciate it .....  HUGS!! Leah Ann

Leah Ann,
I am so sorry to hear you and your family are having to face this. My father went through the same thing and I have to say although it was so hard for us to take, he did fine. It was however, a little harder for my mom and for that you will need extra strength. So, prayers are with your family and an extra prayer for you my friend. Hugz, joann

You will understandably be worried Leah Ann. I will be thinking of you and I am sure your prayers will be answered and you will both be fine. It is always the waiting which seems to be the hardest.
Big hugs to you.
Love Sharon. x
