Legs 11

A softened image of my sweet man who is such a good patient. Keeping his feet up. And being very grateful for what I do.
Three Good things:
1. Stitches out in 6 days. The photos he took early on look terrible. But will be good to see the healing then.
2. We both have really good books so its reading in the sun today!
3. I tried a sous vide dinner - took ages because I forgot how the machine worked. A good result - I think!
bep
Wishing your hubby a speedy recovery.
Question: what is a sous vide dinner?

@gijsje You put fresh food in a plastic pouch, seal it then dip it into a vessel filled with water. It takes hours but good to plan ahead and the flavour is Number One!

I know he is so glad to be home! The peace and quiet at home is so wonderful, hospitals are so loud and busy. Get some rest yourself!

@louannwarren Thank you Lou Ann - he was woken every 1/2 hour to get his blood pressure taken so not much sleep! I get plenty of rest but must keep up the exercise or my muscles will fade away!

@annied Not exactly true, Annie! I'm so used to being looked after and he doing all the 'blue' jobs! Now its me as well as the 'pink' jobs!

@grammyn The fact that he's allowed to go home is good - means they are not worried about him, Katy!

It looks very cozy and the rest will do him well. I'm sure you were an excellent nurse

@digitalrn He's getting a district nurse to come and check his dressings! That I cannot do!

@onewing Apart from trying to grab me as I go past, Babs he's a good boy!

I've missed the cause of the injury but hope your hubby is soon up and about again. Love the title!
June 6th, 2019  
@busylady the cause was a ladder collapse resulting in him getting the skin ripped off his shin and a bit further around from the ladder steel steps. Sounds awful and it was awful to look at! He lost over a litre of blood but the ambulance & hospital took charge and he recovered in a week with over 40 stitches!
