She went to see a plastic surgeon on Friday. She will have surgery....possibly this coming week. But I guess they can't do a skin graft on an exposed tendon (to technical for me to understand!). Anyway, they will do sort of graft and the doctor is deciding which would be best. He told her it is a serious condtion, and a few years ago, it would have meant amputation of the lower leg. After the surgery, she will have to spend time in a hyperbaric (or is that hyperbolic) chamber an hour or two each day (I can't remember which). I also can't remember how long she said that would have to go on. The only good news is that she is up to 50% weight on her leg. The wound and graft won't interfere with her weight bearing.
