Everything has been put hold for a while. Tom's condition is Charcot foot. Charcot foot is a serious condition that can lead to disfigurement,disability and amputation,according to the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons. As the  condition advances, the joints crumble, and the foot adopts an abnormal appearance. Patients with diabetes, patients with long-term neuropathy, and neuropathic patients with tight Achilles tendons fall risk of developing the condition and ought to take extra precaution and seek immediate medical treatment as soon as symptoms appear. Doctors orders are NO weight on the ankle for several weeks, if not months.

It's been a while since I gave a update on the foot. The bones in the foot continues to mesh together. Still some swelling going on, but it will settle down in time. I got my 12th cast today. It's been three months since it all started. The good news is, I got fitted for a Crow Boot today, and yes I'll be able to walk with it on. I still have a long way to go,and it's slowing getting better. Every day I can move my toes is blessing. I want to say thank you for all the prayers.

New update about my foot. Yesterday I had my foot doctors appointment and it looks like it improved just a little. The doctors are very happy. Still not out of the woods. I don't go back till October 3rd.
Yes, I got a new cast, which was number 8. I woke up this morning and I could just about pull it off. So back to the doctors to get a new one. Thank you all for kind words and prayers.
