St-Richards-Hospital 7th September 2021, let’s hope for a quieter day! My stomach was really itchy first thing this morning! But, I didn’t really take a lot of notice, especially with my skin being the way it is! I’m always scratching or itching! Anyway, when I went to get dressed I noticed that half of my stomach has been shaved or waxed! What? When or where did that happen? And why? I’ll get back to that one after I’ve seen Mr Wakeling!
I had the dressing changed on my wound today. Blimey, how long is my scar? It’s a good 12 inches/300mm now? The good news is it looked good to me! And more to the point it looked good to the doctor! Unfortunately, though it’s still weeping, so I’ve got one of those Pico 7’s on again! Deja vu??
Julie and her mum came over this afternoon, and Vicky came over in the evening, which was nice and passed some time.
I saw Mr Wakeling late in the day but forgot to ask about the shave! Anyway, there’s nothing new to report. Having the Pico 7 on could be good, or it could be bad! The samples that were taken from me while in theatre are still with microbiology. And don’t show any new infection, or that the old infection is there either! Which, is good in one way or maybe not in another!? It’s all just a game of waiting, to see how what way my infection markers go. And watching to see if my wound stops weeping. So I’m in the hospital for?? Who knows how long!
