Good Morning GTT!
What a beautiful day again yesterday! High temp was 69* with a stiff NW breeze. Got my mowing and trimming done. So happy with my new Milwaukee cordless trimmer and of course the now “old” 2520.
Mrs. C’s PT went well yesterday I think. What is one if the biggest issues is she still has the staples in her incision. Should have been taken out weeks ago but could not get an appointment.
The PT girl had her remove the bandage. She said part of their care is wound care. She said it looks slightly infected in one spot. She massaged all around the incision. Mrs. C said overnight all of a sudden she felt it leaking and felt immediate relief. Must have been the massaging.
I never knew these PT people did so much. She told Mrs. C that she is her primary care giver now for her surgery. They must go through some comprehensive training.
Today is the visit to the knee doc. I know what is going to happen - Mrs. C will go in there and they will remove the bandage and ask why the heck hasn’t she been in to have the staples removed. Ummm, I plead with the lady on the phone and told her what I needed. She told me that this was absolutely the first appointment she could get. It’s been 4 weeks since the surgery as of last Monday.
So I see some antibiotics coming along with some more wound care. I’m so glad she is feeling some relief this morning. The last few days she was in awful pain - also walking with the cane with her leg stiff instead of bending it at the knee.
So will do the grocery run while in town. Planning in getting a slice of pizza from my favorite pizza place for lunch since it is close to the hospital.
