Written by: Julie My Dad's journey started with his annual trip to Dauphin Island, Alabama. We left Michigan on January 13th. I stayed with him until the 20th and then flew home. I expected to be flying back down there to drive home with him on March 14th, but other plan were in store. For those of you that have been around my Dad recently, you know that he has had some issues with his legs and swelling. He has also been seeing a Podiatrist to take care of his nails. Before we left for Alabama, he saw all of his Drs. and since his left leg was very swollen, they wrapped it in a soft bandages and told him to leave it on for 13 days. While I was still there, he told me that he had a water blister on his right leg, but that he took care of it before I woke up. What that exactly means, is beyond me, but I think he lanced it and then covered it with a bandage.
After I had left, the 13 days was over and he unwrapped his leg. He ended up getting some sores on his feet and legs, and one of his friends thought he should go to Urgent Care.
