No more WOUND VAC!

Even though the doctor thought that maybe he'd leave the wound vac on for a couple more weeks, he agreed today that the foot could probably do without it. The circumference of the wound has gotten considerably smaller and the depth is now only about 1 cm, which is less than 1/2 inch.

It will be so good to get that turned back in! Too bad they won't take back the brand-new, unused box of dressings that have had the tape pulled off. That's $350 worth of bandages that we just have to eat. None of the contents have been opened but the box has been. Oh well... maybe I can sell them on eBay for a fraction of the cost. I also have a couple of canisters. I am able to send back one carton of canisters ($275) and two boxes of dressings. Hopefully, they'll give us credit for them. Technically, I guess they'll credit insurance first and then the difference will be credited to our share. It would be nice to get the whole credit though. Even after their deduction for what insurance made them absorb, it would still be about $500 credit on our portion of the bill. That would be very, very nice.

Praise the Lord for His goodness and mercy. Ron's foot could very well have needed to be amputated.
