My current story begins with having a double toe amputation on April 17, 2019.  I had stepped on a metal staple that became lodged deep inside my foot, it became so infected I ended up with surgery and i was septic. Very ill!
This month i was rehospitalized due to reinfection of wound which caused me to also be septic again. This was, in part, due to my insurance company refusing to pay for a wound vac to help it heal.
I'm currently in a skilled nursing facility. It's short term while i receive my antibiotic through an IV picc line and I have a wound vac this time.
