New Hip -- Day 5
We are just finishing up with day 5 following the New Right Hip. Kathleen has done extremely well in my opinion and I am really proud of her. She is walking with the assistance of the walker and scooting around far better than I ever expected at this juncture. Her incision has healed enough that she will be able to shower in the next day or two. Sponge baths up to now have sufficed.
You would never guess what we are doing tonight? No, not that. When we were a little younger that was exciting, now just packing to return to the 'tininthewind' is all the excitement we need. Yup, we are packing up all that we brought with us to this little stick house so we can load it up and return to our house on wheels in the morning. Four days sooner than we had planned.
We will remain at the fairgrounds campground in Viroqua through Friday and then will make a stop at the Veterans Memorial Campground in West Salem for two days and then on to Goose Island just south of La Crosse where we will settle in on a Monthly Rate to take us to the end of the six weeks we have been requested to remain in the area. Of course, at the end of the six weeks the Dr. could request more physical therapy and suggest that we stay in the area but I rather doubt that will be the case as my patient is doing extremely well. Baring any setbacks, who knows, they may even shorten the 6 week requirement. Wouldn't that be nice.
We are ever so grateful for the use of this little stick house, but I have to tell ya, we have missed our little traveling home more than any one could ever imagine.
