April 28, 2010 joycepsouth

Mom has had a pretty good day.  She went for a walk.  Said her food tasted pretty good – which is an improvement – she said nothing has tasted good in a long time.  Had several visitors and was eating ice cream when I talked with her.  They did discover another blood clot – this time in her leg, but the dr. are not concerned as she has been on blood thinners for a while and will continue on them.  That is their normal way of treating blood clots.  The dr. decided to leave her incision open to heal inside out to reduce the chance of more infection.  He check it out today and they are treating it with special care –  I think he told mom she was always the exception to the rule. As they were initially treating it with a vacuum pack which helps most people heal faster – but not mom, they went back to their old way of treating this wound as they call it.  She sounded better today as she laughed when she was telling me this — Aunt Libby is down for a visit, so that should make her feel better too.  Thanks for indulging me in such rambling and this long blog.  Have a good Wednesday evening.  –:)

    Being the exception is a King trait. Sounds like she has good doctors. Thanks for the update.
