Thanks everyone. Sorry I am not replying individually..
Vascular dr not been yet, but the ward dr is doing everything she can to get them here as my foot is getting worse quickly , sadly it’s goodbye to it ,yes things are that bad. But they want to get my kidneys back up to my base level to do an mri scan so I’m on lots of antibiotics to clear my infection , and bags of fluid.

They now seem to be gettting the hang of Diabetes
I’m actually feeling ok , there are people worse than me here but the care is good here.

So glad the diabetes is a bit better managed (or at least understood) by them now

So, so sorry to hear about your foot :( :(

Hope your kidneys bounce back soon.

Once again - oh eck. May the vascular team visit you swiftly to save you the agony of having to dwell on it, at the very least - and watch back episodes of The Last Leg and the 2020 (in 2021 LOL) Tokyo Paralympics to see what people with one foot missing can do, to motivate you so you can await with excitement to when you get your titanium blade prosthetic and start winning medals!

Oh gosh Lin, I am so sorry! Can't begin to imagine how you are feeling trying to come to terms with such news, but as @trophywench mentions, there are certainly plenty of role models to focus on and technology to help improve mobility after surgery. Hope they can get the matter sorted soon for you.
Sending sincerest wishes your way for the best outcome possible. Huge (((HUGS)))!

Thank you everyone esp @trophywench .
No visit from vascular team. I have been moved to another ward and they have a much better idear of diabetes ,
I’ve had many a discussion with the drs about what to do if this that or the other happeafter my operation .
There is a very old lady in the next bed to me the dr cam to her and explains things, you can’t help but over hear. Seems she has the same but worse than me and they can’t do much for her , I was so sad for her that it made me cry a bit.

I’ve just had some good news , dr been round, my kidneys have improved enough to have the MRI.
Vascular team will see me sometime soon, the bad new is my foot is going to be re dressed today ,ouch , I hope they give me Oxycodal (sp?) again I was away with the fairies last time lol .
Laughing and giggly and just generally feeling wonderful.

Seems I have a nasty infection that they are finding difficult to clear ,
Dad. Is in with me as I am his. Carer , I think this is lovely of them and am so grateful.
The ward I’m on is supposed to be a Diabetes ward but staff don’t seem to have much understanding about it
Sorry to hear that you are in hospital. Ìts the best place to be to get swift and accurate diagnosis and effective treatment. I hope its not too stressful and that you make a full and speedy recover.

Best wishes to you and your dad,

Mark
