September 2, 2013 Update on Marty

Marty has developed a new, third, open wound on her ankle. From my untrained eye, all three were much worse.  Under the circumstances, her physician gave her a choice between Hospice and a surgical amputation the affected leg. As Marty’s guardian, it fell to me to make the choice.

 I guess I was silent for a long time because the doctor asked me several times for an answer. I knew that Hospice was out of the question because I am not ready to let go. On the other hand, I did not want to choose amputation.  I had so hoped that Marty would not suffer another physically indignity … an amputation on top of a stroke that robbed her of so much.

The truth is … I did not want to answer the doctor. But given the reality of the situation, I finally told him that I accepted that Marty needed to have the amputation.

Marty’s surgery is scheduled for September 11.

Please continue to keep Marty in your thoughts and prayers.

Love to all
