I'M HOME AND NOT LEGGLESS
This afternoon I was discharged from hospital, albeit in my view a little early but they have stabilised my condition and the fever has subsided and I am back onto oral antibiotics. The swelling has reduced greatly. My left leg was three times the size of my right one and now it is just 1.5 times . . . and falling.
The ulcer, still nasty but much drier, can now be treated by District Nurses and I shall be visited by one tomorrow for a dressing and compression bandages . . and we can work out a plan of action to get rid of this nasty thing.
They will probably be known to me from the days they visited Maria when she required their attention . . . They all like my cups of tea and coffee . .
I have a few interesting posts about the hospital stay and how a number of nurses remembered me from my ambulance days . . .
I came home by ambulance and one of the crew was a great chap I worked with . . . lots of co-incidences . . and some great fun . . plus some painful days . .
