What a WONDERFUL day! Dr. unwrapped Tressa's leg on Saturday morning for a peek, and was very pleased. This morning, he took a second look, and said we could GO HOME! Words just cannot express how both of us felt at that moment! Nearly all her skin graft attached~ there is an area in the center and to the bottom that has sluffed away, but that will gradually fill in by itself. She will be doing at home exactly what she was doing in hospital~ strict bed rest, only getting up to go to the bathroom with her crutches, and keeping her leg elevated. She is on keflex 4x a day, and we will go back to the Dr in a week for him to check her progress. 25 days in hospital, and we are HOME at 11 am this morning!!!! WOO HOOO! I took the above picture right after the Dr left, and she was doing the happy dance in bed!
On our way!
Nurse Linda is wheeling her out to the car...she doesn't look the least bit happy does she? The whole drive home, she kept saying~ 'wow~ look at that!'.....when we went in hospital, the trees were not yet budded out even, and now everything is, as Tressa says, "All Green and Fuffy"
