Good news............

Yippeee! Ton, the wonderful nurse from the RCA (Rehabilitation Center Amsaterdam)was here on his bi-weekly visit and measured the wound and joyfully told us it was a 1 cm smaller than two weeks ago.

This is brilliant news we were all beaming especially Ton, he is a very good nurse, very helpful,gentle and very supportive of Richie.

Which makes me quite fond of him.

He has been visiting us every week since August 21, his help and advise have been and are invaluble.

Even though we have become quite fond of him, he is a very nice person,still it will be nice when he does not have to visit anymore.

Looking to not seeing him as that will mean the wound has healed, Ton's careful estimate is end of March.

It's been such a long journey, but the hope of getting into a wheelchair for springtime is wonderful. Keep thinking healing thoughts.

The sun is shining brightly here, but it is still very cold. I am eager for spring to arrive.

Ton sounds wonderful. It is special that good people show up in our lives when we need them.
My security word is ruxersti?
what is a ruxersti - maybe an alien?

What wonderful news, Herrad!
Only 1 cm. to go.
Sitting up won't be easy, but in time you will get stronger.
That wheelchair Lisa mentioned will be welcome indeed.
Perhaps an outing to see the tulips in bloom is in your future?

Hi I found your blog thru Charisa:) I am a physical therapist and whether that really matters, i dont know. I do know that a WC will give you so many opportunities to continue to live life, and that is grand!
Remember you are Herrad, not MS!!
I am sending healing prayers from the midwest.


I have no clever comment to make other than keep writing, and I'll back often to look and read.
