    Default Looks like my dad will lose both his legs.

    He might not make it through surgery tomorrow. We found out that he has basically been working the last two years with no toes. They rotted off and he didn't tell us until he was taken to the hospital. GanGreene has set it so bad. It sucks that I couldn't do anything to stop his drinking. He wouldn''t ever listen, but I'll always feel I should have done something. But he is a tough bird and things go his way and he will not have it any other way. Still, feeling helpless is one of the worst things you can feel.

    I have some conflicting feelings. I want the surgery to go well so that I will at least have some more time with him. But on the other hand, I know he doesn't want to live like this. I know how miserable he is going to be and I hate that part of it. My dad is a "go go go" person and he was torn apart when he had retire due to old age last year. For some of the older people, job is apart of their lives. And that was the case with my dad. He hated not having anything more to do.

    With my mom, brother and niece dying in '89 and '94 and his brother dying about a month ago. It's just tough to see someone go through so much pain. Being 69 with no legs will add to that pain greatly.

    Damn Rock, so sorry to hear about this. I'm suprised that he was able to hide it as long as he did, but hopefully, with some aggressive treatments the doc's will be able to stop the process before it gets any worse.

    You and your family continue to rally around him.

    He tried to remove his IV last night and he said he just wants to die because he is too old to live this way.

    OH! SO sorry to hear that....My great aunt was diabetic and eventually lost both of her legs (look my family is so freakin big, you name it, it's happened), and she had a VERY hard time in the beginning cause she had "phantom legs" (where you still feel like your legs are there), but after she went to rehabilitation, she did fine. Did great up until she got congestive heart faliure and passed at 82.

    There IS HOPE AND PRAYER!!!!!

    Sorry to hear this. I hope your dad pulls through and maybe this will be the wakeup call he needs in order to stop drinking.
