Onward & Upward 

Onward & Upward  (6.03.15)

Just arrived at Indiana University North Hospital, and now in pre-op.  Beautiful hospital, and very kind staff.  Good start to what is likely to be a long day.

Here's a description of my procedure: Ertl Amputation Procedure described by Dr. Jan Ertl.  Dr. Ertl may be doing a 2 step procedure, due to my having had osteomyelitis (bone infection).  I may have  wound vac and not be completely closed up after today's surgery.  This way if the osteomyelitis rears its ugly head again it won't be trapped.
