Thursday I spent almost all night at the ER with Martha. She has had a skin infection in her right leg. I told her that if they had to amputate we could have his and hers matching prosthetic. She didn't see the humor in that. She is doing well, but doesn't want to to do what the doctor tells her. She is home though Sun, 1 Nov 2015 21:05:36 EST not a good day I didn't go to church today.
