Death and Life

What do you think you would feel like if they told you that you had a month or two to live? And then it turned out not to be true? Wouldn't that be a horrible event? Well that is exactly what happened to my husband's brother this weekend. His doctor told him he did not have gangrene in his foot and that it was not true about dying soon.

However, now he has been moved to the physical theraphy part of the hospital across town. It sounds like there is a possibility of gangrene setting in within his foot as there is no circulation from the ankle down. They are beginning to discuss amputating his foot but it would have to be done in Rochester, MN at the big hospital there as they can't do it here.

Then we wonder what is next? Would he have to go to a nursing home? Can you get an artificial foot? I don't know all that much about it but time will tell.
