Just got the call. In spite of their efforts to save it the doctors have decided amputation is the only option left.

He will be getting this done late this afternoon.

Oh man that is not good. Praying for the family and may God be a comfort in this time.

He made it through surgery and is in ICU now. They amputated above the knee saving as much as they thought they could. Now they are gonna watch to make sure they don't need to take more off. This is brutal. I personally don't understand why they didn't take everything they thought was questionable the first time.

Thanks for your prayers,

My brother in law is upstate there in the hospital with my wife and his wife dealing with the turmoil of our Father-in-laws tragedy. At 3pm this afternoon he finds out his mother who is in a nursing home and he has seen everyday since she moved there has passed away.

This has been a heart wrenching day for all of us. But even more so for Charlie.

I'm completely stunned by this news.

So sorry to hear the news. Keep in mind you guys are doing all you can to ease the situation. Don't beat yourself up with guilt. Lay out a plan how you and Mary can be of help in the situation. This helps you not to just sit and fret.
