The Foot Stops Here

Yesterday afternoon, after more than a decade of seeing this coming, my father had his right foot amputated. It was a below-the-knee amputation, and the doctor figures that in the long run this will improve his quality of life. One can only hope, although he'll be stuck in hospital for the next 6-8 weeks (including rehab time), which will probably become a tad irritating after awhile.

His mood and health are apparently both excellent. I'll be talking to him tomorrow, and head out for a visit over the long weekend.

My best wishes for his speedy recovery.
I hope he's out of the hospital and feeling much better soon!
Our best wishes too for a recovery that's swift and uneventful -- no problems, no surprises, nothing but improvement every day.
