I am so frustrated, the blister broke Feb.15 on the way into see my G.P. His nurse put  a quick gauze bandage on it and sent me on my way. I have been having my legs wrapped due to venous insufficiency and chronic edema. The blister was being covered before the legs were wrapped. The blister started to change and cellulitis was diagnosed. I was put on antibiotics for ten days leaving the leg unwrapped. The swelling returned to that leg and the healing of the blister was lost. This healing process has been very long because I have insulin dependant diabetes because my blood sugar levels are very high, I am morbidly obese & I have an autoimmune disease (Pemphigus). Of all these issues what is most powerful for me is my faith in God who's goodness & mercy sustains me daily.
