Storyboard Text

  • Mr. Blue woke up early one Saturday morning. Having difficulties getting up from bed, Mr. Blue was surprised to find that he had lost complete feeling in his feet. While looking down at his feet, he could tell that his toes were turning an abnormal dark colour, and he immediately phoned his neighbor, Ms. Green, for help. 
  • Ms. Green immediately rushed over to Mr. Blue's house after dialing for an EMS.   
  •  After arriving at the hospital via ambulance, Mr. Blue was quickly rushed into the emergency unit  to receive immediate care. 
  • After inspection by Dr.   Drake, it was  found that Mr. Blue had signs of dry gangrene in his lower extremities, specifically in his toes, and had been starting to spread to the rest of his feet.   Dr. Drake confirmed that this  was most likely due to  his diabetes, which   resulted in reduced blood flow, explaining why Mr. Blue had been unable to feel or notice the   decay. 
  • As the gangrene had already spread to the rest of Mr. Blue's foot, amputation was needed to prevent further growth of the infection. 
  • Luckily for Mr. Blue, with the help of modern medicine and a caring supporter, he was able to make a speedy recovery after surgery, and soon after a few months of physical therapy was able to use his new prosthetic.  The End !
