Ex-planner gets a helping hand with Sept. 12 fish fry

It was just a few months ago that Duncan McCallum was sitting on his tractor working as he has for the last 15 years.

Today that work has come to a standstill, albeit a temporary one, as he fights a battle that even he can't see.

For the last several months, McCallum, 67, has been in and out of the hospital fighting an aggressive blood infection that has already cost him his right leg.

Chronic poor blood flow in that leg that caused constant pain led him to the doctors, who through a series of tests, determined that the main artery was 100 percent blocked and others were 80-85 percent closed.

Doctors told McCallum that an arterial graft could do the trick and get him back painlessly on his feet.

Around the first week of June he underwent surgery and for a time, it looked as if everything was good and it wouldn't be long before he was installing septic tanks again.

"We were enthused," he remembered Monday from his Williston home. "It was working so well."
