Motorcycle accident Jan 18, 2013...doctor majority working that night
wanted to amputate Carl's left leg but big dog ortho doc chose to
attempt to save his leg. Since then....Leg presurgery surgery, major
repair and titanium rod insert leg surgery, open wound vac therapy, eye
orbital plate insertion surgery, sent to a rehab/nursing facility where
they actually dressed open wounds incorrectly that led to topical
infection of open wounds = back in hospital to treat with antibiotics
then sent home for wet to dry dressings twice a day provided by wife at
home for over 3 months. We did it! Open wounds healed over with scar
tissue. Doctors seemed surprised. Then, ankle support plate surgery,
then needed surgery to replace titanium rod with shorter one because
bones contracted much during trying to heal where they were crushed,
then osteomyelitis bone infection occurred so surgery to completely
remove titanium rod was performed while put on high dose IV antibiotics
in hospital daily for a month then sent home on oral antibiotics. He was
no sooner home and was having problems with heart. The long course of
high dose antibiotics set off his heart with his afib problems again so
another bout in hospital to get meds readjusted. Next Ortho visit after
infection was gone, they scheduled yet another surgery to put another
titanium rod back in. So a 1 1/2 years and 7 surgeries later.... Carl's
leg is healing again after 7th surgery he had June 3rd, 2014 and now
finally starting to try to get around a little, still with much
discomfort and pain after trying. Of course medicines, doctors and
medical bills are overwhelming...Thanks to all who are in continuous
prayer and who have helped physically or financially! Much Love to You All!
