All is progressing as anticipated. His irrigation system test should be Monday morning. Once the doctors assess the circulation in the heart and legs, they will make a decision on their course of action.
The foot surgery to remove a small bone on the outside of his foot is the least important part of the treatment right now, but his doctor said the infection isn't an issue as long as he has really good circulation.
Walter and I went to Red Lobster for lunch yesterday after Stan had eaten and was ready for a nap. Stan said he wanted a Cheddar Bay biscuit. The nurse said it was OK since he wasn't eating. He had one for an afternoon snack then actually ate better for dinner. He wasn't too hungry at breakfast this morning.
He had to have a new IV put in around 1:00 a.m. The nurse had already pulled the tape off and a LOT of Stan's arm hair trying to fix the other one. He had to pull new tape off the second time. Stan told me it was worse than the first time.
Stan is doing really well on the Sara Stedy. For people who can pull themselves up to stand but can't walk, it is a really great design. It is so much safer than a walker. There really isn't too much way to fall and get hurt. It does require a driver.Keep Stan in your thoughts and prayers Monday. We are praying for a good outcome.
