My mom developed an ulcer on her foot back in '06 (i think) and she had skin replacement surgery done, twice. It finally almost closed up, and had stayed small for about 4 years, the other day my dad saw it, and said "Oh my gosh! GO TO THE DR!'' She didn;t feel it was bad, it turns out it has been like this for a while, but we never see it because it is always covered. I had no idea how bad it was. She got into the Dr. yesterday and he gave her like 4 different antibiotics and she sees a spectialist on Monday. He is testing her for Diabetias, it runs in our family, and we're thinking that's why it's healing sooooo slowly. She finds out in two weeks the results of the test. It hurt her so much last night that she only slept for like 2 hours, and it hurt her all day today. I helped her clean it and bandage it up this evening, she said it feels better already and hopefully she can get more sleep tonight. We have a lot going on, moving, buying a house, g-ma's appointments, and etc... BUT that is no reason she couldn't have said anything sooner. It makes me mad and I told her about it because my g-ma is 104, and my dad works. I CAN NOT take care of my mom and G-ma by myself 5 days a week!!! I was ticked off! She could loose a leg from that, or much much worse! I told her to think of me too when it comes to this. I know I never would have to do it alone, my best friend in the whole world would come over after school and help me do laundry and the dishes, and help me feed the dogs, cats, fish, chickens, and hamster and frog, and he would help with house work. He would, I wouldn't ask him, he just would. But that's not 24/7 help that I would need. Tomorrow when I have time, I will post pictures of her leg, but right now we need to both get some sleep. Night BYC'ers!
