When it rains it pours. My grandfather took another fall. Some of you may know that we lost our sweet bullmastiff last week and while all that craziness was going on, my grandfather has been dealing with a leg that is causing him severe pain. About 30 years ago, he became very sick and ended up with a skin fasciitis disease which literally almost killed him. It’s basically a flesh eating disease and it literally was eating his leg. Long story short, he had surgery 30 years ago and while they ended up saving his leg, he has had residual leg pain and issues ever since. He has managed quite well until recently. Between his bad leg that he had surgery on and his diabetes, he is suffering from severe leg cramps that are at the moment, debilitating. He unfortunately fell yesterday afternoon and hit his head which just made him mad and sad. He was an emotional mess because he can’t stand how his body is now. He is ok but he is headed to the doctor today to be examined. Hopefully they can give him some medicine to help with the muscle spasms and leg cramps.
Say a little prayer for him if you would. The warmer weather is coming and he needs to be able to get around, go to work and play in his workshop. -ha. I hate seeing him so frail and unhealthy. It’s so difficult for him to be stuck in a chair or in bed. He would rather be dead as he puts it, then stuck not being able to get around. I don’t blame him one bit. On a happy note, the police station makeover is in full swing and looking great!
