At the beginning of April, I posted some fears I have for a good friend of mine. You can read the original post here.
To recap: delightful woman, full of life, but extremely obese, a diabetic, and not doing anything to work towards a healthier lifestyle.
Back in April, she was admitted to the hospital with a foot ulcer -- a very very serious complication for anyone with diabetes. She had surgery and a lengthy hospital stay, followed by a stint in a rehab, and was eventually sent home with IV antibiotics.
That was around the middle of May. A week or so later, she posted on Facebook that she would be getting hyperbaric treatments at a different hospital, because the foot wound wasn't healing properly. But don't worry, she told me, she'd be at the Memorial Day barbecue.
A few days later, she posted on Facebook that she was being rushed to the hospital, the one with the hyperbaric chamber. And then she posted that she was in a private room at that hospital.
She hasn't said much else, either publically or privately, other than how much she missed coming to the barbecue.
But I know how to read between the lines. And I am very, very worried about her.
