Well, I had an appointment with my podiatrist this afternoon concerning the ulcer on the back of my big toe on my left foot. After examining it, she said it is a pressure wound. It is okay for now, but will have to be closely watched, because it will keep coming back. If it starts bleeding again, or any kind of fluid starts leaking from it, I have to call the doctor right away. She wrote me a prescription for a pair of diabetic shoes, and special insoles. My big toe on my left foot is suppose to move at a ninety degree angle, mine only moves at about a five degree angle. That causes a lot more pressure on my toe, which causes more calluses, which make the wound worse. So, I am praying the shoes, and insoles will help. Tomorrow afternoon, I have an appointment with my lung doctor. Hopefully, I will find out what is causing my breathing problems, and choking problems when I eat. Prayers would be appreciated.
