Patricia A. Blair
March 25, 1959 - December 5, 2006
Pat got a water blister June 7th on her right foot. She didn't think anything of it. She popped the blister. Two days later she was in extreme pain and couldn't figure out why. Friday the 9th she finally went to the hospital. They did an ultrasound of her leg and said that the blood flow was good, but they had no idea what it was. They put her isolation. Later that night they transferred her via ambulance to the trauma center. June 10th they had to do a below the knee amputation. Pat had lots of complications. They discovered that her had a heart problem. She had to have many debridement surgeries and was put in the Hyperbaric Chamber. She had over 15 surgeries to clean out her leg. They never were able to close it. Finally on Nov 2nd they did an above the knee amputation and closed her leg. After that surgery she never recovered. She slept all the time. She finally lost her life 12-5-06. I miss her so much.
