November 7, 2010

We got all of our perscriptions refilled yesterday.  You know what that means?  Chico's been home a month, and I'm familiar with the pharmacists.  Every day brings new progress and new people into our lives it seems.

So the pins came out Thursday.  Chico learned to use crutches on Friday.  Yesterday flew by crutchlessly.  It was a chores and rest kind of day.  Chico does a lot of exercise during the day; leg stuff, arm weights and just the regular getting around the downstairs is pretty consuming.  He has long, restless nights.  Here we are on Sunday=Soak 'n Shower day.  We get to soak the pin foot (it still has blood on the bottom from August) and then try the shower.  I bet that will feel good.  The new complication is the donor site (where the skin was taken off the right leg for the grafts on the left).  It hurts and itches regularly but now it has blistered.  Not handy.  Hopefully the blisters will stay closed so that Chico actually can take a shower.  That would be GREAT.  I'll keep you posted.  I get to go work out first which is an unusual and welcome treat theese days.
