Sunday am now, and I may get to go home today. Still haven't mastered crutches but the walker let's me get around.

Will expect to see you in the Orlando/Davenport area this winter. I might even buy you a cup of coffee.

BTW, I greatly admire your positive attitude. Will keep you in our prayers.

I am so glad that you are through this operation and have not lost your positive approach. Keep on "going".

Back home today. Using crutches and the walker is hard work! I'm exhausted. Maybe it's because I had major surgery only 4 days ago and have spent a lot of time lying in bed. I'll get over it. Doctor said leg was worse than what he thought, and put me on an IV antibiotic at home for 6 weeks, then maybe if it's healed enough, prosthesis guy wants to start with new leg. Bone doctor is ok with going to Florida, infection doctor not sure, and prosthesis guy says no, don't wait til spring to do the leg. I'll just wait and see what happens..............Rick

Stay positive; stay focused.
The goal is to be healthy enough to get camping again.

Do what you can to maximize a positive outcome.

Did you have Osteomyelitis (bone infection), gangrene, or just superficial tissue infection prior to the amputation?

I work as an Inpatient Pharmacist and participate in our Infectious Disease Rounds (with the ID Md) at my hospital.

Depending on your insurance, they may not be contracted with an infusion pharmacy where you are headed. Are you hanging your own IV antibiotics or have a home health nurse coming daily?

Wishing you a speedy recovery.

Richard I pray all goes well with your recovery. Do what the Dr. says and hopefully you will be on a sunny beach before the first snow fall in Ohio.

Richard,

Glad to hear that you're *home*! Home is a huge first step to recovery and being home is good for the heart as well.

Continued prayers for your recovery.
