Almost Done!!

 
  I feel twenty pounds lighter since I had all of those pumps, IVs and the PICC line removed.  I also was able to take a REAL shower!!  It had been 6 weeks of ‘bird baths’.  The only things left to do are weekly doctor appointments and dressing changes, which Becky and I can do.  I’m using a cane for now but that’s a trade-off that I can handle.  The wound has finally closed now and the Collagen will complete the healing process.
 
Becky and I got to know my homecare nurse, Susan, very well and we will miss her visits.  She did an excellent job… Better than my doctors did!
 
Here’s a pic:
 
 
Well, time to change the dressing on my foot before bed.  Take care everyone and thanks so much for all of your encouragement.
Hopefully I’ll be walking the dogs soon!!
 
Nite, and have a great rest of the week.

    Boy that was scary for a while.. Your nurse looks fun & smarter than your doc eh?! Not hard to believe. Take it slow Bob, life wouldn’t be the same without you.

    Great news! Why, you’ll be off that old cane before you know it. The dogs will be excited about you taking them out again. And don’t forget to take that camera of yours!

    You ARE looking good! Great news and I know or i can imagine rather how great it it to be free of all that stuff. Taking a shower unencumbered is worth gold, isn’t it?
