I guess narcotic dreams are vivid and infinite. In fact, Nick says he usually begins dreaming even before he falls asleep. I love waking in the morning to hear what happened that last night in Nicks world. Mostly he can’t remember, but when he does it’s always a funny concoction that only his subconscious mind could make up. I think he said something about a unicorn this morning. Maybe a manatee. I don’t remember, but it was random!
Today we had an appointment at a Urology clinic. Don’t worry, I’m not going to sit here and discuss Nick’s pee and poo; I’ll save that for the dinner table! What I do want to mention is that things are going good. We’ve been a little worried about not having a doctor monitor that area lately, but it’s all good. They’re going to run a comprehensive test on his bladder soon. That should shed some light on his progress with regards to healing and function.
I’ve been cleaning his stumps daily and changing his dressings. I desperately wish I could report a full healing, but I can’t. There are still a few spots with scabs, and one small troublesome spot that is still open and fleshy. Come on! Let’s get this going. The hyperbaric chamber really revved his healing into over-drive, but there are still a few miles left to go. The good news is that each day I can see improvement. It’s noticeable. There’s a bit of stress having an upcoming appointment to fit his stumps with prosthetics, yet not being completely healed. If they’re not 100% healed we will be forced to push his appointment back, ultimately delaying him learning to walk again. But that’s not going to happen. Good vibes to Nick’s healing stumps.
