Nobody lives forever. Stuff happens and when it does you need a "Plan B". I have a group of very nice animals that I bought mostly back in 04 and 05 when I thought I was going to be a breeder. Last Aug I had a scare and that should have opened up my eyes. I had to have an arterial bypass to restore blood flow to my legs after the toes on my right foot turned black. The bypass seemed to work and in Nov as I was regaining my strength I put the room into brumation. In March this year as I was about to bring them up to temp my right leg died and was amputated March 15. There are steps to climb at my place and I can't get in without being carried. I got fired from my job and it has taken all my savings to buy the "cobra" insurance and pay the out of pocket money. Life can be tough. Now I have a collection of non-venomous pituophis good quality snakes that I can't hardly even get in the house to see. I am staying at my brothers place until who knows when. I don't have friends locally that can help and it was my right leg so I can't even drive. I don't know what to do. I have thought about waiting until a show gets close enough to maybe talk somebody into picking them up on the way home. I guess the reason I am writing is to hope for a miracle at best and at least maybe I can make a big enough impact on somebody to come up with their own "Plan B"
