Miniature Vacuum Cleaner not Functioning Properly

I think it's safe to say my right foot will not be amputated anytime soon. Yesterday I was discharged from the UCSF Medical Center then transferred to the San Francisco Nursing Center which is a skilled nursing facility.

The image below depicts what my foot looks like today, Friday, September 18th. The black mass you see is actually a sponge that's used with the small vacuum cleaner to remove any debris leftover from the operation that was performed this past Tuesday or Wednesday.

I hope I get better soon. I enjoy lazy days in bed as much as the next guy, but I need to start moving forward with my life.

At any rate, I think the doctors have to figure out why the wound vac isn't working. It's supposed to suck stuff out but it's not doing anything.
