My Right Foot

(Page 1 of 6)


2020-08-24. This page follows my adventure of being diabetic, getting charcot foot, and having to get my right leg amputated (below the knee). I will be adding things here as I move forward.
There is a lot on this page,so it may take some time to load up. Please be patient.



2020-09-27. I made some changes to this page. I started it while in the hospital, and built and added to it with my iPhone, so it needed some polishing now that I have access to my laptop.
It used to display from current to old in detail, but now it displays from old to new in detail. I will be adding some older info, as this ordeal initially started back on 2019-12-19. Keep checking
back as this venture is far from over.
