Well, I'm on the mend. Today was not as good a day as yesterday or the day before but maybe I did a bit too much yesterday. Tomorrow will be better. The nurse came and changed the dressing on my leg and there is no infection but the wound is still open. So, she will be back Monday to check it. In the meantime hubby will take care of changing the dressing twice a day. He does a great job with it.
Josh is doing better. Had his first food, is craving a Big Mac, wants a smoke and is having therapy for his voice. He is wheeling himself around in a wheelchair and trying to pass the hours when he's not getting therapy of one kind or another. He's also on the mend.
Prayers are needed for my 82 year old mother. She was having a lot of back pain and was seeing a chiropractor for sciatica, but last week mentioned she was having bladder problems. I sent my brother on Sunday night to take her to the hospital but she talked him out of it. This morning about 2am she phoned him to take her. She has been in the ER all day and has had blood work and an MRI. Since I've been instructed to stay out of waiting rooms and hospitals, I can't go to see her, which makes it very difficult for me, but no sense taking the chance of getting more infection or catching a bug while I'm healing.
Michelle (daughter) went to see her this afternoon and they are going to be admitting her. Apparently they think she will be in hospital for at least a week. Michelle said that they will deal with the bladder next week, but need to administer pain killers for the sciatica over the weekend. She is asking for her Bible, so will have to get hubby to drive me to her house and see what I can find to help keep her occupied. Mom, like me, is a doer and not one to be sitting or lying still. She is a go-getter.
Please keep us all in your prayers. Seems that since Josh had his accident in March that one family member after the other does their stint in hospital. I'm hoping that this is the end of that trend.
