A lot has happened since my last visit to blog land. Thank you all for your patience!
Katy is doing great. I did fire her wound care nurse due to her not showing up for 3 days, always being late, and taking 3 hours to do wound care, but the company sent a new nurse and she is great. Katy’s wound care has evolve, and she will only need care 3 days a week instead of 5. She also went for a second prosthetic fitting, and has another fitting tomorrow. I know that it will be a LOT of hard work, but I can’t help but be excitied for Katy to keep working towards regaining independence!
A few days ago I woke up with an insect bite on my arm. It turns out to be a spider bite, and it got infected. I went to the doctor and got a shot in the butt and a prescription for antibiotics and pain pills. Today, two days later, I went back. The doctor tried to drain it, but the infection had become fibrous. It required a bit of hacking on my arm, and another shot in the butt, but he was able to drain a bit if the infection. I have the wound packed with sterile gauze, and will have to go back every day until it is healed. OUCH!
I want to thank all of the people for the lovely dinners that are being brought over! We are eating well thanks to these nice ladies. I also want to say thanks to everyone working so hard on the NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM event. Larry Dierker, former Houston Astro, will be at the event! I know all of the sports fans I know are excited to meet him.
Well, the pain meds are wiping me out. I will write more soon.
Love to all,
