Snowy Afternoon in Amsterdam.
I am doing my best to keep optimistic, despite being told by Richie last night that the wound has slightly re-opened again.
Boo hoo hope it heals quickly as I have plans to get out as soon as this cold snap is over.
What a setback, especially now when we thought, there was no danger of it opening again, not after being healed up for three months.
Who would have thought, that the ex wound would open again.
Boo Hoo so need to see the nurse quickly for his advice, I mailed him last night and he will be here tomorrow.
Ton will be here in the afternoon together with the ergotherapist Ludwine, hope they will be able to work out what the hell happened to cause this to occur.
We are both quite paranoid now, especially Richie who has done nothing differently than he has been doing since I have been in bed.
Very pleased that both Ton and Ludwine, from the Amsterdam Rehabilitation Clinic (RCA) can come here tomorrow, as they are so very good.
So no sitting round in the wheelchair for me, certainly not until we have spoken to the experts tomorrow.
Find if really shit we do not know how it happened, Monday it was fine and then yesterday there it was abit of blood and its a tiny bit open again.
I did not ask Richie for all the details, but did manage to ask if it was a crater again and he said no, said that maybe the skin was very dry and fragile and had torn slightly.
Then he spent some time cleaning and bandaging it up/
I am trying to stay optimistic.
Took a sleeping tablet to ensure I did not lie awake all last night thinking about that and the fact Spike is ill.
He went to the vet’s and they did x-rays and a scan, he has arthritis in three places, the knee is inflamed and pretty sore, he has a spot where he hurt his spine and up by his neck.
Poor little gut is now on medication for the next two weeks.
Boo!!Hoo!! on both counts.
Wishing I could sit right now, funny have noticed again today how I always want what I can’t have, guess I can’t be so different from everyone else.
That helps, me remembering that I am only human, thanks Cranky @ Musings of a Cranky Caregiver
for writing about that in your recent post ‘’ Yep I’m Human’’
Difficult to relax today, but will take it as easy as possible this evening, I may need another pill to help me sleep otherwise I could lay awake all night worrying and second guessing what Ton and Ludwine may say tomorrow.
Have to stay in the here and now.
