Our neighbour is probably dying of a gangrenous condition of his foot.
One of our farmer neighbours, who we're very fond of, has recently had to have half his foot amputated because of diabetic gangrene. He wanted to come home after the operation.
Now the operation isn't healing, an infection has set in and he has to return to hospital. He's 85, worked hard all his life, a lovely man with a great sense of humour.
I went to see them today and he looks really awful.
His wife is tired out, she's been very kind to us, and I'm wondering if there's anything I can do to make it easier for her.
I did take a home-made cake.
They have a son and family nearby but they're busy taking over the work of the farm.
