I know I haven’t updated in awhile, but I was getting tired after a few nights of thinking I was sleeping and then in the mornings, realizing that I must not have. But all in all, the worst of the pain is over for Chris and she’s slowly doing better with each passing day.
I did heed your comments about taking care of myself through this, and did alright. Thanks for the reminders though!
I changed her dressing yesterday and was amazed that there was no swelling. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I pulled off those dressings, but having recently done hospice for someone, I was ready. Plus I still had a lot of supplies from those days that are becoming useful now.
She has an appointment on Thursday where hopefully the staples will be removed and dissolvable stitches will be put in place, so long as things are looking good.
Thank you all for the thoughts and prayers. I’ve always believed that the power of the many almost always creates positive results in the end. I think she’s doing well enough that I’ll be able to work come Monday, once we get our new morning routine figured out.
Well, I’m off to help her shower. Everything is new experiences this week, though I know that what is at one time new becomes normal after experience.
Thanks again, my friends!
ONWARD TO FREEDOM!!!
