Greetings all.

Mrs Tiny is in hospital again with a complication of her diabetes. She had a foot infection this past summer that has returned with a vengeance. It has settled into her right big toe which has turned a dark purple and the doctors aren’t sure if it will have to be amputated or not. She will be hospitalized until Tuesday afternoon at the least, and we find out then what will happen.

I lost my left big toe at age ten to a power lawn mower. If she loses hers, it will be taking “togetherness” to the extreme.

Hi all.

Thank you all, my friends, for your wishes and prayers. They are greatly appreciated.

On a good note, she is in a lot less pain today and the foot isn’t as swollen, so we’re hoping…

I pray she’s home for Christmas. After 37 years together, I’m lost on my own.

My thoughts are with you both.

My mother is a past VP of the American Diabetes Association. Through her work, and through my diabetic grandfather, I learned about the ravages of this disease.

I wish you both health and luck.
