I had close to 2000 emails waiting for me on my return of which around 600 have required some response and I am now still at work waiting for a meeting so forgive me for not yet having gotten around to reading any of your blogs and catching up on what you've been doing. I know I owe people some emails and I promise I will get around to answering. This again will be a quick post.
Whilst I was away I got a message from my sister telling me that Mum had received some results from tests she had done and that further investigation from specialists was required. Around 18 months ago she had an operation on her spine to fuse some disks but the surgery showed quite extensive deterioration due to osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. It now seems that the arteries in her legs have collapsed and that she has no blood circulation to her feet.
Tomorrow we visit the specialist for the results of the tests and the prognosis. There are several possibilities. The best case is that a stent can be inserted and open up the arteries, the worst case is a possible amputations. I'll know more tomorrow.
