things seem to happen so slow with the hospital and my FIL's care. When did they say he had gane grene? at least 3 days ago I think. Seems like they would want to get that taken care of before it got any worse. But I guess they have to weigh all their options.

The orthopedic surgeon came in and looked at his leg and said he didn;t think it looked that bad and wanted to to have the neurosurgeon look at it. So, the neurosurgeon came in and said there is nothing he can do for it that the blockage is severe and the surgery that he would need to do to TRY to get blood flowing back to his foot his major and he didn't even know if it would work. So, I am guessing that means they will be amputating. My MIL was tired when she talked to K last night so he didn't press her for a lot of information. He'll call her back today and find out what the plan is. so sad that it has come to this. :( Kyles thinking is that in the long run it might be better for him anyway to have his leg amputated. They don't believe he will ever walk again anyway and if he doesn't have a leg it is less work for his heart to have to do to try to get blood down there. I guess that kinda makes sense. It's very sad and I feel very bad for my FIL. I am worried about the surgery too.

We will head back down there for the surgery whenever they schedule it.
