This is 'Me' today... A vast improvement over
the eight days since surgery. I'm hopping around
and practicing on my crutches... This morning the
Orthopedic Consultant told me medically I can go home
but I need to be stable on crutches and have all the
ACC help in place. I want to go home to my bus...
So first I need to be able to get into it!
Yesterday I received these most beautiful flowers from all the
wonderful people at the Motorhome forum... A box of
licorice allsort flowers. Thank you so much.
This is me each morning... Bagged up and ready for a shower.
The catheter has gone and the lure in my hand.
(If you are squeamish don't look any further)
After my shower all the bandages and dressings
get changed. The nurse doing it today is Isobel.
She has been a nursing lecturer and is very good.
The wounds are definitely healing... All these
staples and possibly the stitches come out on Friday.
Although this still looks dreadful it is definitely
healing. It is a lot dryer and the medical term,
I think, is granulating which means
healing. I'm told the skin will grow from
the outside and the wound will gradually
get smaller. I'm busy researching 20+ UMF
Manuka Honey and Comfrey for healing...
As well as lots of vitamin C of course.
I want to end up with as few scars as possible
