The picture below is of my right foot. It shows what the foot and leg looked like before surgery. You can see how bad it look immediately after the two surgeries and what it looks like today.

Email Sent to My Doctor and Her Reply

Hi doctor,I saw the foot doctor yesterday.  The preoperative instructions are attached.The podiatrist wants to do a skin graft in two weeks.  And she said she's going to lengthen my Achilles's tendon (that has me scared).  Should I get a second opinion about that?On October 29th, I'll be admitted to General for the operation and I'll be there a week according to the foot doctor.  I don't know what will happen after that.Dr. Marquez ReplyHi Ramiro, I am glad you have a surgery date.  I wouldn't be too scared about the Achilles tendon, it seems  necessary (but I will review the surgery notes).I am in Uganda now, but will review the surgery notes when I get back next week, and then I will email you.  Usually people go to a skilled nursing facility after the surgery.  This will give time for the skin graft to heal. -Dr. Marquez

The video below is of one of the courtyards at the San Francisco Nursing Center. I recorded the video on Tuesday, October 13th so it may look a little different today.I've been a patient here at the San Francisco Nursing Center for more than a month. I figure while I'm here I may as well keep busy.

They say the eyes are the windows to the soul. I believe that's true, to a certain extent. The eyes instantly tell us if someone is sad, happy or angry, but people can also hide their feelings if they choose to do so.At any rate, I hope you're doing well. I'm still a patient at the San Francisco Nursing Center so I'm doing ok.

The video below us of the wound on my right foot before I went to the hospital. It shows me. Squeezing the puss out so it's not for people that are squeamish.

It's Sunday, October 11th, 2015, and I'm still a patient at the San Francisco Nursing Center. A friend named Tim came to visit today and he brought about $20 worth of weed. We smoked some of it and he gave me a small amount so I can smoke later or tomorrow.Photo Credit: ricoramiro DeviantArtI've been trying change my life for a few decades and in fact, that's why I started this blog.I figured that if I admit I am powerless over drugs and alcohol that it would help me create a better life.

I simply enjoy watching lion documentaries like the one below. They are a lot smarter than people give them credit for. I've seen lions outsmart their prey over and over and it's so much fun to watch.
