|Bill's doctor treating his legs|
Bill got his legs treated today. What a relief!
Bill said he never in his life got so much attention from a medical staff. Seeing this attention to Bill's medical condition almost brought tears to my eyes.
Bill is not one to complain about his health. He just plows through. But his legs got so bad that he couldn't sleep at night because of the pain. He finally asked me to check into getting some care for him.

Bill is at the age now where his need of medical care will increase. We are both so thankful for the VA Choice program that he can now use outside providers for his medical needs.
Today went very well. Bill's legs are getting cared for at the wound care center of a local hospital. The folks there couldn't have been nicer more caring for Bill.
Tomorrow we see Bill's new VA doctor for a followup.
We are both very fortunate to have Bill's medical condition cared for. And yes, his legs are getting better. But this will be a continuing care procedure. Bill has edema, on of the many afflictions of old age. Hopefully we can manage this condition so Bill can have many more years. I need someone to mow the grass.
