I appreciate all our friends for visiting Leo and I at our stay in the hospital. It spent 30 days and he spent five after I came home. He had water on his lungs, which they removed and made it possible for him to breathe better. I was in there to take antibiotics every day to help get my leg well. It is much, much better but not completely healed yet. They said the circulation in my leg had much to do about it’s healing. Thank goodness we’re both home and feeling better but not up to par yet. We appreciate you all for visits, cards, calls and the good food we got.
