Ugh 3, The Battle is Lost

Wednesday started with such promise -- the cultures came in. The blood culture was negative, so nothing systemic. And the wound culture has two strains, neither of them staph. So I still hoped we could save the foot.

Alas, the MRI showed almost "no discernable heel bone". The infection had eaten into the infection site, I guess.

Probably lose the foot on Friday.

This is not a huge shock. We've had amputation on the table for 2½ years. Hoped that in ten years they would learn what to do with a diseased heel bone.

Time just ran out.
