Things are going pretty well with us this week. K got her stitches out Friday and it has caused a little more discomfort than she has been having. She thinks the doc wrapped it tighter this time and it has caused some of that. We have re-wrapped it so we will see. The cavern in my chest is closing noticeably. We have reduced the nurse visits to twice a week and then just so someone that knows what they are doing can look and see that there is no infection and it is still progressing.
The next two weeks are filled with appointments. A lab for a blood draw, my surgeon visit., dental visit. Then the following week my urologist visit, K will have a needle biopsy of the area they are suspicious about from her mammogram, and finally my twice yearly eye exam and then K's visit to her surgeon. Hopefully she will get a walking boot then. All this along with nurse visits for my wound. Then we should be good to go and K will hopefully start getting her foot back in shape.
K's recovery will determine whether or not we take a road trip to Colorado come October and then maybe over to the Grand Canyon. She has to be able to walk well enough as there will be some walking if not hiking. We certainly don't want to undo anything that has been done to her foot. But we are hoping that it is far enough along in the future for her to be near normal. I am really looking forward to this trip. It's been way to long.
My Dad is still at the rehab. I have not been to see him since he went there earlier in the week. Apparently he has been grouchy and the rehab is adding to that since it causes him pain. At 92 he has been very immobile for some time so any sort of exercise is hard and he doesn't want to do it. Consequently the grouchiness plu snot being at home and having my Mom at his beck and call every second. He still is getting confused about things too, but from previous experience that is not unusual and may continue off and on for a bit.
On a brighter note, we had a chance to keep the baby for most of the day Thursday. I went and got her and brought her home and was very happy to do so. They were happy to send her off for awhile, she was demanding their attention more than what my Son#2 was able to give at that time. He was very busy working and needed the break. It was a nice treat for us and gave us something else to focus on and raised our spirits considerably. She is a very easy baby and is in a great mood every time we have her.
How could you not love this face...and those huge eyes?
