It’s been a couple of days since my last update (Apologies for the slacking) Rehab has been going great. It’s primarily focused on upper body training and of course a lot of leg strength in preparation for when I go full cyborg. The ladies that handle my therapy are extremely nice and well trained at what they do. I’m very happy with them and feel I’m in good hands. My sugar levels continue to bounce up and down due to there being lack of diabetic options on the menu. How can a facility primarily made up of older clientele and patients (such as myself) with special dietary needs not have a diabetic menu. Oh well, it is what it is. At least I’m learning what and what not to eat.
On the prosthetic front, the people from HangR (the suppliers of the miracle appendage) came by to see me on Friday. They’ll be working with the nurses to help change my wound dressing and start getting it ready. They implemented a ‘shrinker’ to decrease the swelling a bit faster and gave me a brief run down of how things are going to go once we are ready to procede with getting the prosthetic fitted. My Mother-in-law left on Saturday after spending a couple of weeks with me. She has truly been a rock during this trying time and I will never be able to repay her. I also want to give a special shout out to my two aunts who came out here when things first started hitting the fan. They did so at great personal cost to them for no more reason than they love me. I’ll use that to wrap this fine edition up. It’s getting hard to see the screen with all the dust in the room. My eyes keep watering.
