Hey out there! I'm really new and just got out of the hospital yesterday from having my left big toe amputated. this is the fourth toe I've lost to diabetic soft tissue ulcers and I must say I am really sick and tired of the process. Any one out there that can relate would be appreciated. I know this time they got my attention more than most as they are talking about my losing my foot next and I know I don't want that to happen. I guess it really has scared me into taking this blood glucose levels a lot more seriously. I can't say why it hasn't been before now, I guess I've just been mostly stupid I guess. I'll stop for now and hope to hear from someone else who can maybe relate. This is Robert Hodge in Bloomer, Wisconsin signing off for now.
