Monday we had a hospital appointment. After taking hubbys cast off last wednesday, the docs decided that because he was still in alot of pain and so that he can start to have a little pressure on his leg when he goes to physio, they decided to give him a boot to wear when he has to move around. This boot he has, has to be inflated when he puts its on then deflated before he takes its off. Another thing that the docs said was that because he was still feeling pain in places where they think he shouldnt be and his leg was turning purple and red and the skin was shiny, they told us that they suspect that he has something called Chronic Pain Syndrome, so as going to and fro to hospital for his break he now will be referred to the pain clinic too. Oh well prehaps we should set up home at the hospital!!
WARNING IF YOU ARE ABIT SQUIRMISH LOOK AWAY NOW AS THE LEG IS ABOUT TO BEEN SEEN WITHOUT THE CAST....
TO BE HONEST ITS NOT TOO BAD OR PREHAPS I HAVE JUST GOT TOO USE TO IT...
|just before you all get confused. this is not his knee, this is his leg from the top break, which as far as we know will stay like this so the hopefully new bone will go around.|
Tuesday Bear spent the morning with his nain and was totally spoilt by all the ladies.
Wednesday , physio day. The docs on monday have told the team here that they can start loading the weight to up to 30kg, so their exercise was just to get some bathroom scales and for him to put his foot on these so hubby can slowing start to push his foot down but importantly so he can see how much weight he can do. So this will keep us going till the next appointment in 2 weeks time. Another thing was to pop into the docters surgery on the way home as hubby had abit on his scar where it was abit weapy after the scabs had come off. So there they dressed his leg and sorted out some more medication that he needed.
Thursday well its the weekly chore of the food shop. When this was done the rest of the day was a rest day well until the rest of the kids come home from school. Beth had her guitar lesson this afternoon. Apparently the teacher says she is very talented and very natural at playing so how proud do i feel as a parent. One of the songs that she was playing normally takes his pupils 3 weeks to get but she got it in 1. So to beth well done you. x
