Update

I went to see the best Dr. in the world...Dr. Patel and his amazing nurse Amy. He took out all but three of the external stitches. He was very gentle but it still hurt some . He said I had a lot of fluid building up in the ankle, foot, toes areas so he gave me a prescription for a water pill to help get rid of it. He also said that I have an area of necrotic tissue that will eventually just fall off but we have to wait and see how deep that will be...I am still in a lot of pain and I have to keep it elevated all the time. Brandi Howard took me to the Doctor and drove me around to get medication and medical supplies this afternoon, she also took update pictures but we will have to add those later. Just know that I am healing well but this is a long road kind of a deal. Thank you Dr. Patel you are amazing....Amy you are a blessing! I love yall.
