Well, dh made his decision and is going ahead with the amputation. He has been in so much pain and the way his foot looks would make anyone come to the same conclusion. We are now waiting to hear when the surgery will take place. Since it is MLK day the hospital is short staffed and they have to get the team together.

Of course waiting is the hardest!

Thanks everyone for their prayers and kind words during this tough time!

Sorry to hear that Ellen;

Afer having read your posts of the ordeal your DH has been going through i certainly sympathyze with both of you. I know DH has put much thought into this, and unfortunately has had to make his decision from a narrow list of choices to begin with. I wish a miracle could change his outcome because no one should have to make that sort of decision.

I hope his decision brings an end to the terrible ordeals you have been forced to endure. May the future bring better days while leaving the unpleasantness of this ordeal behind you.. My prayers are with you...

Sorry he has to go thru this. Hope all goes well when he has the surgery & that he will then be free of all the pain he has had. We have a friend that had to have his leg amputated a few yrs ago & he gets along just fine.

At least HE made the decision! (not that he had many choices!) And hope you are both ready for some very hard work. Be strong and I wish you all the very best.

It takes an amazingly brave person to make that decision. All things considered, based on what I've read here, and my experinces, I honestly do believe it's for the best. There will be times when you'll both second guess yourselves. Don't. As the days and years pass by, when he's having a bad time, when the remorse bug hits, remember the most important thing ... He's alive and you have each other.

So, here's to you both. May you come through this crisis stronger and ever more in love ....

God Bless. We're pulling for you!

Well, the surgery went well. There was some swelling of the tissues but the dr. thinks everything will be fine.

Thanks again for all the good wishes and prayers. I know that they have really helped.
