As some of you know, she couldn't go on the cruise last year because she had a bad leg break a couple months before. Then this year, we had to postpone in May because she was still having problems with her leg and we rescheduled for September. She has had skin grafts (because of a severe infection), bone grafts, etc., etc., etc. She has had this "cage thing" on her leg for a long time time and attached to the cage are rods that go in one side of the cage and out the other. She has probably been in the hospital almost more days than she has been out in the last year. Well, this weekend, she started having a lot of pain (more than usual) and her skin graft starting oozing. To make a long story short.....she is losing her leg....they will amputate sometime in the next couple of days. Please keep her in your prayers. She does however, have an amazing attitude about the whole thing. She told me...."Look....I'm 67 years old, I'm overweight......it's not like my leg is "out there" anyway!" She said she is fine with the situation and definitely still plans on going on the September cruise.
