Oh, dear Pete, i'm so sorry to hear about the night, but glad to hear the day after was better again Smile
And i'm not surprised at all that your family was there for you. You are such a wonderful father and husband, so there's no doubt for me that your wife and kids would do anything possible for you to make you feel save and at least a bit better.

"It's always darkest before the dawn."

Boy, I sure hope you're right about that one.

Yay for feeling a little better!

It's been a while since the
last update. Went to hospital,
today and here is where it all
lies, for now:

Since the last update, I removed
the blood-drain, not able to stand
the related pain any more. That
was the first night I slept in a
month. I felt the pain from the
muscle which was cut into quite
a bit, during this time. I had
medications that helped but any
weight on that side rang a bell,
let me tell you. All the while, I
had the stitches and tight. It
was hard move the leg without
straining those stitches. I admit
pushing a little but it did not take
that much to aggravate and this
past weekend, later yesterday:
a bend of the leg and a consider-
able bleeding took place prompting
today's visit.

I was worried that a new pain near
the gland in the area was a harbinger
of things to come but my visit to
the hospital and surgeon, today,
has relieved me greatly. The
bleeding that I have been exper-
iencing just recently has to do
with the blood drain having come
out a little before schedule. Rather
than draining that blood; it was
collecting inside and THIS is what
was causing that new pain.

He removed the stitches and that
relieved me greatly but before I left,
the area that bled had to be explored
and he did, sticking a swab rather
deep into the wound looking for old
blood. This wasn't painless. He
inserted what seemed to be a ton
of tape gauze in there for more
collecting. I am to show up tomor-
row for the removal of and possibly
the re-insertion of more tape-gauze
to soak up residual blood and fluid.

Yeah. A little pain in that but without
the stitches, my gate has improved.
I have better mobility and there is less
pain in that gland that naturally was
inflamed and not only because of the
blood but the fact that a major incision
was made very nearby. He was quite
positive and encouraged to get the move
on and that is what I am going to do.

There have many people that have
been helping us during this time.
We have had many dinners made
for the family to lighten our load.
Everyone has been praying for us
and encouraging me all this time.
I can only say thank you heart-fully.

Of course, the adventure is not over.
The wound has not healed yet and
the radiation that will take place has
to wait until the wound is totally
healed. Still, this is a threshold
in my recovery and I feel em-
powered, with the understanding
of my present condition and we
say: onwards.

When the next significant thing
happens, I will you know but I
have a great deal to do in order
to catch a bullet-train that
has my left my station.

I have been blessed.

Again, thanks and love,

Pete, a welcome if not completely pleasing update. I know we all wish you were not in pain, but we are definitely glad that there has been improvement!

The road is long, but you are strong, and I suspect you have a good walking stick with you. You have a huge cheering squad for you here! Please let me know if there's anything I can remotely do for you or your family. There is distance between us, but the Internet is a wonderful thing (most of the time) so don't hesitate to ask, my friend!

I look forward to more updates and notes on your progress.

Much love and music,
VL ♪♫

Hi Pete,

Somewhere in this big text i sensed some optimism. In between the (bloody) lines I see a positve progression.

Keep it up Pete!

Every train that leaves a station will have to start slowly PeteC.
But it sure is going forward.

Thanks for updating us, Pete. I hope that in a few months you'll be able to look back at all this with a smile of victory.
But at the moment: all forward!

Thanks, again.

I pulled all of it out of there, today and
took a good look. I still have three holes
that he'll have to make the call on. There
still some activity in there. I think he will
repeat the process.

Despite this, all ahead and steady.

He said to me: "I want you to get to your
normal cadence."

That resonated with me.

Regards,

P

Back at hospital, today. Again,
had removed tape gauze from
yesterday, myself, in the shower.
It was consistent with blood
throughout and so I thought for
certain we would be repeating
the process but pleasantly sur-
prised I was to see that he ap-
proved of the amount of old fluid
which it contained. He has asked
me to focus on only the lower
part of the wound, now. In his
opinion, it is healing and will close
on its own, with just the regular
daily cleansing and bandaging.
He gave a few more ideas on
bandaging which I made a note
of, too. Incidentally, he asked
me to drop off the narcotics and
I have done so.

And so, this chapter in my recovery
can finally draw nearer to close.
I am so thankful to have had Dr.
Boffa recommended and then
surpass my every expectation. I
will be seeing him in a week and
we will be keeping an eye on
things and on to the next.

Love, to all and again. thanks.

Smile
