Lying in bed for two years while my deep pressure wound healed, this ruined my muscles, because I was not allowed to sit upright in bed.
Too much pressure on the wound, at the time no one mentioned that being in bed for a long time could damage my muscles.
Little did we know that the wound healing would cost my torso muscles, we were so focussed on the wound.
That was the most important thing for us both that kept us busy from august 2008 until august 2010.
There were a few times when the wound seemed to have healed, I sat for a couple of days only to have to stay in bed again.
Very difficult for us both, a horrible situation, last year the wound opened up again in January, it healed on 27th April.
I was sitting when Steve visited us on 13th May, but had to stay in bed once more 3 days after his visit for a month, in June could sit for another couple of weeks.
Then the wound opened again, I was back to bed for a few weeks, then I could sit again.
The last time was at the end of July; luckily it healed on 6th of August 2010 and has stayed that way, so finally I could sit, which was great.
