I'm new to this site and I am the one family member that isn't diabetic. I help care for my elderly mother who has the worst diabetes of the 3 that have it. Recently the heel sore (and another leg sore) showed signs of not healing and they're talking about amputating below the knee. I'm terrified for Mom and I'm sure she's terrified too, but how does one cope with this BIG change and continue going forward with physical and emotional changes? Just wondered if any one can offer some thoughts or ideas that my sister and I could share with Mom to help alleviate her fears as well as ours.
