my husband is a firefighter and diabetic. He got an infection in his foot that got to the bone and ended up having the 4th toe and bone connecting to it amputated. He has been out of work for 3 months and living off my little check. The infection wasn't caused by the diabeties but the healing is slow because of it. We have used all out savings and even had to barrow out of my daughters college fund. We don't know what to do and need advice on that point, but My husband is so depressed. He has faced the fact that loosing a toe isn't the bad part cuz he could of lost the leg or if we hadn't found the infection when we did a week later and he would of lost his life. He is not one to stay still very long and right now he can't drive (dr said only very short distances when he HAS to) and has to depend on me to do everything. I can't break down because it's not good for him and he is having a hard time right now. Only last week the Dr told him he can start to put weight on his foot. We know the end is comming but it still seems so far away.
