Special Update of 11/12/14

Larry
emergency_room_591Just a quick update to all: Mom is in the hospital.

We went to her podiatry follow up and the podiatrist stated the pain she was having was not from plantar fasciitis, that she had more going on. The podiatrist called Mom’s PCP and then instructed us to go to ER. They were calling down there to let them know we were coming and what was happening.

From ER they rushed her to interventional radiology for an angiogram and determined that she has peripheral artery disease (PAD) and had very little blood flow to the foot. They ballooned them open and admitted her to the hospital.

Today when we meet with the doctor they stated that she only has one small vain open in her lower right leg and if they cannot get drugs to work to open some of the others, they would have to take her foot. She is in denial right now about this.

I look at it as they need to do what is best for her and will be there for her no mater what happens.

I will keep you all posted as I can.
