Patti is doing well.
We have been concentrating on Patti’s rehabilitation; Pain, bowl control and exercise.
We removed the pain depressant pump on Friday. It was a rubber bulb filled with anesthetic under pressure with a long very thin catheter that was inserted under the skin to impinge on the nerve for the front of the knee. The anesthetic is injected automatically into the nerve, deadening it.
The removal was simple; remove the tape and pull out the tube.
That is one less thing that Patti has to deal with.
Patti has had a couple visits from the PT person and is doing good.
Yesterday our new recliners were delivered. Now Patti has a decent chair to sit on.
Every thing is going well so far.
