That’s what they call the little suck holes that have magically appeared on the backs of Mike’s legs virtually overnight. Apparently, this fluid is blood although it isn’t red- but according to the doctor, the blood is coming. They have him wrapped up in thick, ointment covered bandages and we are supposed to keep his legs dry? How in the world do you keep legs dry when they are weeping fluid? i guess that is the million dollar question. I really didn’t expect to spend the day at the hospital- especially this day, but when I was trying to help him put his shoes on earlier, his one sock was soaking wet. Upon further investigation, I found these little suck-holes on the back of his leg and off we went. Happy Birthday to me, pass the sports wrap!
I just hope he can keep his leg clean. They say if the holes become infected really bad things happen. He goes back Monday to see his regular doctor and then back to wound care clinic on Tuesday. I’m just grateful that I found his wet sock and went looking to find out why it was wet instead of just assuming he walked near the dog’s water as she is quite sloppy when she drinks. Thank you God for giving me vigilant eyes-
