    You have every right to be crying and very upset. Don't let your doctors put a guilt trip on you. It was your body and your choices on how to treat it. You know what smoking was doing so you don't need the doctor to keep telling you that it was wrong. That was in the past,today is a new day and you are going to choice a new path. Had slow healing after surgery so I started to sit quiet and relax for a few minutes after crying, took zinc for healing skin problems. Give yourself a little credit for trying. It will get better and please just take one day at a time, that is all any of us have. Good luck YOU CAN DO IT

      Thank you so much for your empathy and encouragement Pal. It was a meltdown that made me realize I needed to make one more decision and my husband found a wound care center at another hospital..my appt. is next week..there can always be a plan B. I'm still a bit weepy but also realize how blessed I am...will write more later but wanted you to know how much I appreciate your encouragement.
