The latest news on my dad....

Perth, Australia
February 5, 2019 6:15am CST
The latest news on my dad is that his foot is hooked up to some pump thing. Where it cleans it and flushes the bad stuff out. From what I've heard, this machine has been a great success with this sort of thing. But if this does not succeed in cleaning out the foot properly to start the wound healing, then my dad's foot will have to be amputated. I will most likely be coming on here later tonight or some time tomorrow to catch up. But just letting you all know what's happening with my dad.

so he may be there a few more days till they can let him come home? I hope he'll get better soon, as long as hes there they can keep a close eye on him.

@sugartoes I don't even think there is a date now for him to come home. When this first started they said 3 days but because of the issues with his foot, it's kinda hard to say because they don't know what to expect. Just waiting for way more improvement on his foot before thinking about sending him back home.

@VivaLaDani13 that's something you can't rush, you have to just be on the safe side.

@sugartoes Exactly. I want things to be done thoroughly for him and not rushed out of there.

@WorDazza Apparently this machine has really worked miracles. I want to ask my dad next time I see him if he knows the name of this thing. Or maybe it says on the actual machine. It's very interesting and slowly but surely just may have been the answer to helping my dad's foot.

@WorDazza Medical stuff, yes! But other type of technology, not so much. It depends.

I hope the machine can clear his foot and that he can come back home soon. I wish him to get well. Take care of you, I know it's a stressful moment for both of you.

@LadyDuck I hope so too. I spoke to my Nan on the phone today and she said it wouldn't surprise her if he stayed in hospital for another month or so. As much as I want him back, I'd rather he stay there until he was 100% healthy and ok! Thank you very much.

@VivaLaDani13 It is better than he stays in the hospital until he is 100% healthy, I fully agree with you.

@Icydoll No worries. Basically he become very sick, went to the doctors, his toe was very infected and that's what was making him sick. He has diabetes so that's again, what was making him ill. He had to have his toe amputated but right now his foot isn't the best. So he is needing further treatment to help save his foot from being amputated also. Thank you very much!

The wound has to heal and diabetes stands in the way. Hopefully, there is no need for amputation of the foot. Let us hope for the best - siva

@GardenGerty Yeah some of the doctors told my dad the same thing. I'm just trying to work out what the name of this machine is because I'd love to research it. I had never seen or heard of it before all of this.
