Wound Clinic Visit

I go to see my wound doctor tomorrow morning. Wish me luck.

If you do not hear from me for a while, it means I checked in and had another surgery. I am hoping that is not going to be the case.

Poking Fun Of Our Canadian Neighbors

I believe it is important to laugh as often as we can and lately, I have not had a lot to laugh about. Maybe that is why I find this so funny. Check out this short video a friend just sent me and see if you agree with me:

Do you agree? Do you think this is as funny as I do?

Maybe I just needed a break from discussing my health issues? By the way, according to the nurse today, one sore is looking better and one is not.

I look forward to your comments.

I Think We Found One Of The Problems

I went to get my cushion looked at yesterday. I found out the cushion was part of my pressure problem. It seems the cushion had a small break in the base of the cushion and was causing a pressure problem on my left side.

After several hours and numerous trips on and off the mapping system, he repaired the base of the cushion and I have been able to sit up for several hours today.

It looks like I am on the upswing with the pressure issue. Now, we will see what the wound doctor has to say on February twenty-eighth about a possible surgery sometime in March.

I am hoping my wounds will heal enough between now and then so a third surgery this year will not be necessary. Since 1972, I have had eight surgeries on my left side and two surgeries on my right side. I am really not looking forward to surgery number eleven.

The worst part of this whole ordeal is I have missed every Gopher basketball game this year. That has never happened in the more than thirty years I have been a season ticket holder for my favorite sport, college basketball. After all, I do have my priorities!

So it is off to bed again now.
