a little update on oma.
i don't think i was good at updating the oma issue, so here is a little rundown.
after the initial surgery, she was home for 2 weeks or so and the plan was to monitor the toe and look for improvement. when she went back to the dr. and he was not happy how the toe was healing (or lack thereof) and decided that it needed to be removed. she still had 2 very large ulcers on her foot, that looked like you had taken a melon baller ot her foot and that you were staring at black bone. she was admitted back into the hospital and aunt denise and robert were here with her the whole time she was in the hospital. she was there for another 5 (?) days again and then she was sent back too the carriage house AGAIN for 13 days. before that she had been in for 11 days. the toe was removed and a skin graph was done to fill that in the ulcers. this was the most painful part. so now in total she has an incision that runs from her groin to her ankle from where the vein was removed and put into her foot. she has one toe removed, and on her thigh the whole where they took the skin from to place on her foot. she is one beat up little thing right now. she is getting around pretty good this week and we were able to take a very quick visit this past weekend. we will be heading up again in november to check in. she has had a rough last 6 months and the last 2 have been a total blur for her. she is on the mend finally and cannot be happier about it. she really does have a beautiful view and even more so in the early morning.
