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.
