Post Surgery Day One

Buzz came through surgery well last night and the doctor was pleased with how things went. The doctor took off about 1/3 of the foot, maybe a little more...but left a piece of skin on the bottom that he pulled forward over the wound,creating a 'flap' that he used to sort of close up the stump. It is not completely closed because of the infection, but the hope is that the flap will take and the wound will close together.
I saw it is pretty gross....and I am a nurse saying that. It sort of made me want to gag. Maybe because I am so tired and worn out but it was just nasty looking.
Anyways - it has been another long day so I'm making this short.
