Good news.....

John had his legs unwrapped & rewrapped on Wednesday. There is cell regeneration which means that the healing process has begun!! He is thankful for the outpour of support as he continues to battle his ulcers, but his doctor believes they are winning the battle!!!

Prayers are with John and hope all is going well.

Dear Lord
Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway.
The good fortune to run into the ones that I do and the eyesight to tell the difference.

This is what our dear John is going through.....

He has major ulcers on his left leg & his vascular surgeon has put him into a pressure treated Unna boot vascular wraps. They wash out everything with saline solution then they have a big alcohol pad called Aquacell AG and they cut it in pieces to fit and be pushed into all the ulcers (he has many shapes & sizes & depths, some the size of a silver dollar & 1/4 inch deep). The smallest ulcer is about an inch deep. His leg is wrapped from the balls of his feet to where his inner knee bends.

They use first what is called Elastic Unna boot Venous Lymphatic Edema it is like a wet cast type white wrap from toes all the way up to hold the Aquacel AG which has silver in it in place. Then they take another type of gauze bandage that is brown & sticky and start from the ball of his feet like the other wrap and one goes all they way up. Now what this does is promotes healing and keeps any fluid from getting down into his legs almost like the same effect you would have with diabetic compression stocking.

Every Wednesday he will be "unwrapped" and they will check the healing process and then wrap him back up. The whole proceedure takes about 2 hours and has to be done for the next 6 to 8 weeks!

It's a very critical process ~ especially since he is diabetic. The unknown is always scary & I'm sure, that even John has scared thoughts about loosing his leg.

He is in a tremendous amount of pain ~ althou he wrote that the first 4 to 5 hours of each day are the best. He mentioned that it's similar to having an abcessed tooth - you can just feel the pressure building up.

We will know on October 15th, if this proceedure is starting the healing process!

I can only pray for the best ~ he is a wonderful leader of our Goonie Group, great motivator & friend!!

I read this on the message board and thought there would be several people here who would want to take part in this.
Lisa

CHUNKSTER63, leader of Calling All Goonies, is in urgent need of prayers please.

He has terrible ulcerations of the legs and is in danger of the possibility of losing a leg if treatment doesn't work.

Please, if the Spark Community offered up prayers on his behalf it would help him emotionally as well as physically and I do believe God answers prayers.

Please copy & paste into your own teams. We really need a strong prayer chain to help Chunk/John.

Thank you very much,
Linda
from the Goonies
