Caroline's heel


Got bad news today on Caroline's foot and she's going in for surgery Wednesday.  They will be removing the dead skin tissue, as well as tightening up the section that did not reattach well and is leaving a large gap. A plastic surgeon will come in during the surgery and possibly take some skin from another part of her heel to do this. We'll know more after that how long she'll be on crutches and what that means for going home. She is happy to have her heel taken care of, but discouraged that she wont be able to carry her kids or go home this Friday as she was hoping.


I asked her if I could post a picture and she jokingly said, "Yeah, it's about time I get some street credit!"

This picture is from before her stitches were taken out:

  6. Oh. my. What do you think it was that cut your foot?

    Prayers for you tomorrow as you're undergoing the surgery. Will they put you totally out or just part of you?

    How have you possibly managed to wrangle kids while hobbling on that sore thing? You are superwoman.
