Well, today was my appointment with my podiatrist. I had several concerns to discuss with her. The ulcer on the back of my big toe, on my left foot had several problems going on. Changing colors, holding a lot of heat, very hard, drying, flaking skin. As soon as she saw it, she looked at me with a huge frown on her face, and much concern. She said, you have cause for worry. She said the ulcer had opened up underneath the skin, and had been bleeding. It is what you call a pressure point, and has went really deep. When it gets to the bone, which she said, mine is at the very edge of the bone, they will have to cut the toe off. There can be no pressure put on the toe, or it will not heal at all. She put a total cast on my toe, and said I have to stay off of my feet. If I have to move around, I have to use a walker, or wheelchair. I am behaving, and doing what the doctor said. Please keep me in your prayers. I go back Thursday, May 19th, for a check-up.
