I am 23 years old and my mother has just been released to a treatment center after having an amputation surgery on her foot… This is the 3rd time! I am soo scared of septic shock and am pretty clueless as to what I can do to help ensure she doesn't wind up back in the hospital.

Being a caregiver is a difficult situation to be in. I can so totally relate. You need to kinda step in with some of the doctor appointments to ask the questions that you have which your Mom may not. The key is education so learn as much as you can about caring for your Mom's condition(s). If you need to shed tears, vent, laugh, cry or simply need a friend, count me in. I will accept your friend invite and will be as positive and supportive as I can. Let me know what I can say or do to help.
