Well, some annoying news on Norm's latest ear surgery and healing. He's had 2 surgeries over the past few months..........lots of cleaning, tending and bandaging...........Finally, last week he got the final good-bye and all-clear from the original surgeon. Hip-hip!! The skin graft doctor (doctor #2) said Norm could treat the heal/ed ear the same as the other...........(NOT!!!) Norm got out of the shower a few days ago and briskly dried his ears........and I'm pretty darn sure that along with the water drops went his new skin graft. I know it sounds petty but I'm so ticked off!........it seems like a personal insult to all my hard work of helping it heal up. I'm just really SO not happy with this. The man doesn't know his own strength but wouldn't you think that a body would know to be careful of a body that was partly a new body???
So.......tomorrow we're back up at the crack of dawn to make it to yet another doctor's appointment where we sit for over an hour along with all the other patients. Maybe the doctor will say that he won't need any further surgery and let it heal up slowly from the inside out. And really, when I get un-ticked, I do feel so sorry for Norm haven't to extend the whole ordeal further..........for a man who has had excellent health and stamina almost all of his life, this must seem like some of life's unfairness. Oh well, you do what ya' gotta do.
If any of you have had anything in your experience like this, I'd love to hear about it........
OK.........done for today..........Have a great rest of the week, everyone. And a happy weekend!!
