My dear husband is doing much better. The stitches were removed this week. He hasn't seen the doctor yet to ask all his questions about the implications of the clot, diabetes, etc.
He seems to have an allergy to the bandages, or the adhesive used in them, because his skin did not react well to them. We did try to move the bandage to not hit the same area time after time. Alas, he still got broken skin. That created the horizontal sores you can see in the photo. He's been continuing to use a triple antibiotic ointment on them.
He's all better now. We ate lunch today at the Greek Cuisina
, then went shopping for new sleeping bags at REI
. We didn't buy any.
Just three more days until my intake appointment at the OHSU comprehensive pain center. Counting down the days..
