Tuesday, May 3rd Mom got her stitches out and released to begin bearing weight again. Well, actually she had already. There was major miscommunication the day we saw Dr. Cook in his Dallas office. After the cast removal and saying Mom could wear the walking boot, I had gone to the car to get it. By the time I got back Dr. Cook had gone on to the next patient and he hadn't said anything to her about weight bearing or how much!
He chuckled and said "I would suggest practicing in a empty parking lot first."
Mom has worked very hard to get more mobile and I commend her for her perseverance!
Saturday May 7th she text me that she had been "practice driving" and she would be taking herself to church Sunday morning!
Vanessa bunch, Doyle, me and Mom went out for lunch Mother's Day. She used her walker and walked without a limp! Now that is progress!
She got more good news too. She will have the pick line removed on Friday, May 13th and will take her remaining antibiotics by mouth. Just in time for us to go watch my brother's youngest graduate from nursing school in San Angelo (3 hours away).
Have a good one!
