This is my son's journey. However, I am very concerned. He is 32 has had diabetes since he was 16 He chose a job as a waiter that was fine I wanted to leave him room to find his own path.
About 2 months ago he had a couple of sores on his feet. He says he went to the beach and hurt is toe. He has a great dr. She bandage his toes and told him to stay off his feet. I has a mother (who is not ready to let go) Ask if he wanted to come to my house to rest and when his foot heal I would take him back home. I also ask if he would like to move back home and get assistance until he could get back on his feet.
Well he came for 2 days and went back home and back to work. He went for a dr's check and was told to go to the ER.
They admitted him. He had a MRI and it showed the infection has spread to his big toe. So he is going for Surgery today. DS called me crying they may have to amputate his toe.
I felt so helpless I am in a exacerbation with MS I am not able to go to him, he is out of state.
So I called the hospital I spoke to the nurse on the floor, the hospital chaplin, the social worker, and his aunt and sister and other family members who are all out of town, I call the church he attends Unity. Members will visit him Sunday. Everyone else came by that day.
I felt so such better and he thanked me. DH thought this was very funny. Actually DS did too. But he appreciated the attention. DS understand I could not be there but his mother would call the Calvary
Thank you all for your support I do not know what I would do without MY 's
I had a busy week and a half. My son from ILL. came I got the chance to see my granddaughter for the first time. Nothing can be finer that to be a grandmother when they are months old she is 6 months. The first thing I noticed was how strong willed she is and she wants what she wants no compromises. My son has his hands full God bless him.
Then my step son stopped to visit, he is a trucker from Miss. and we had not seem him in 6 years. He is a great man. He is so thoughtful and kind I feel like I am his mother. He is very respectful. I enjoyed his company and DH was thrilled.
First I did not chose food to express how I feel. This is new for me. Second I was on my food program with peace and contentment. This is new also. I choose to see the glass half full not half full.
All praises to a power greater than myself who I chose to call God.
I am on a pre-op diet just under a 1000 cals and I feel very contented.
