These photos are an inside look as to how life currently is for my father, who has had trouble adjusting
to life without his right leg. The loss has affected him mentally, emotionally and physically. My father, a
senior citizen is 73 and lost his leg last year due to gangrene, a byproduct of his diabetes. Both of my
parents have diabetes. My mother had a stroke three years ago and is currently in an assisted living
home. My father is unable to see his wife without aid.
