'Tis a dog.   :snooty:

It's true.

That's no cat.

--I knew it was a dog before anyone else knew.
--No one knows dogs better than I do.
--No one would have guessed that was a dog.
--Atheists are spreading fake news about dogs.
--I love dogs, they're amazing, dogs love me, ask anyone.
--My uncle is a terrific scientist; so I have the gene, and I know a dog when I see one, believe me.
--A man said to me the other day, "Sir, you are the smartest man I've ever met, if you can recognize an elephant on a test, I believe you can recognize a dog when you see one."
--I bet, 'billions and billions of dollars' --That's a dog.

--"A cat!" Unbelievable...Really!

That does suck, so to speak. Dialysis, you say? I was suspecting diabetes, not renal issues. I have early stage renal failure, just for getting old. Not bad, just being monitored. Most of my family didn't live long enough to expose what the geriatric issues for us children would entail.

Yep diabetes, had it for 25-30 years and is the primary cause of the ulcer.  Renal failure came more recently, about twelve months after my UK trip in 2016.  It was lucky more or less because with the covid protocols at dialysis they picked up the infection in its early stages and although there were bugs in my bloodstream it responded well to the IV antibiotics and had cleared within 12-24 hours of the first infusion also the bugs are/were sensitive to less exotic antibiotics.  Still on IV Keflezoran (antibiotic) three times a week administered after dialysis, so no need for a cannula they just use the dialysis venous line after the wash-back.   All good!

I really appreciate your description of what sounds like excellent care. While amputation is one of the more dramatic medical procedures, we all have and will have need of mechanics tinkering with the machinery. It's nice to hear of competent work.

Here's to the toe, and to hope you will retain the rest of your appendages in future!  :cheersfortwo:

I've had the offer of a 3D printed toe, a peg-toe if you like.  Avast!  Upgrades my pirate credentials.   :rofl:
