So I'm sitting in this Hospital..,

...With a foot full of dead tissue...

On Monday I was at litter with a 102.9 fever, and a gangrenous foot!
It turned out that this foot has run it's course. Do we have anyone in here who's wearing a prosthetic? I'm at the point where this pig has got to go...

Man Bob..... can life throw you any more curve balls? Between this and your wife battling cancer you have had more to deal with than one person should have to face.

Hopefully someone can post some information for you that will. I have seen people lead normal lives with them.

I wish you a speedy recovery and will say a prayer.

That's rough. The technology for prosthetics is advancing rapidly. Hope you both can get back to enjoying your RV soon!

What kid didn't want to be a Pirate?
Bring on the peg-leg, the Parrot, and the eye patch!

Thanks, Guys...

Damn Bob sorry to hear that.
Late 90's I had a buddy on our bowling team carried a 230 average and he had a prosthetic. Anchor (best) bowler on our team. Lost his leg from knee down from an accident in his youth. Other than a slight limp you wouldn't of known he had lost it.
Best of luck to you and the Mrs.

Bob, sorry to hear that bad news.

My son works for this company. https://www.bulowops.com
They’re not close to you, but check out pictures and the technology.
On the other hand fitted a young lady from Alaska, who flew into Nashville, was fitted, and returned home. If she has any problems, he can access it via the internet. Wow, such technologies.

Oh and the founder of the company lost one leg to cancer when he was 14, has a prosthetic leg and can play a mean game of tennis.

Sorry to hear that Bob. You certainly have a full plate these days and I hope all goes smoothly. You have a great attitude and a sense of humor.
So, with that in mind, make sure you don't get one with a tracking device in it.
Wishing you the very best and keep us posted on your progress.

Sorry, your bucket has been pretty full. Take care of yourself and your wife, and do everything you can to avoid the corona virus, that is definitely something you do not need added.

I've been told, but can't verify;
You're going to be very busy in your next ass-kicking contest.

This is a very big, but entirely manageable and fairly common, life chapter coming up.
Care and calm are called for.
Make it so.
