It’s almost party time here now, Ton, the nurse from the RCA surprised us by turning up alone at 11.45 instead of 13.45 with Doctor Stolwijk.
This was when we noticed how stressed we both were about Ton’s visit.
Not surprising that both of us slept badly and kept waking up, I was suddenly totally awake at 5 am.
Really not surprising and also for Richie, these visits are stressful events where we do not always get the news we want to hear.
Luckily the visit is done and dusted and behind us and there was the good news that it is barely one cm left open.
The new regime for the last couple of weeks is that Richie only uses a tiny bit of the tampon dressing to plug the wound and allow moisture to drain a way, the healing process is well underway now so Richie does not have to apply any prontosan anymore.
Ton is on holiday and will be back on 8 July, he expects the wound to be closed up in two weeks time when we have to call Doctor Stolwijk so she can confirm that the healing process is completed.
Really hope this is so as we have been waiting since the end of January for the moment when the wound has healed.
I think it will be August before I get outside again, have to make sure that when I can sit that I get a jacket and leg warmer bag.
Even though it will be warm I am always cold and will most likely really notice the temperature outside.
I am looking forward to it very much!
