He's now home safe and sound Smile

They've given him a vacuum dressing, it's fascinating to watch all the bleugh being sucked through the tube.
Ben says the wound looks like an undercooked sausage that's been torn in half Shocked

Now we have the district nurse to look forward to - the dressing has to be changed every third day for 5 weeks by the nurse. After that he's allowed to change it himself.
The bedroom now looks like a hospital ward Rolling Eyes

The wound is healing really well. The nurses were here to change the dressing this morning and going by the measurements they've been taking, it's getting smaller. I still can't get over watching the bone move when he wiggles the rest of his toes Shocked
The vacuum dressing he's got is really clever, even if the canister does take up a fair bit of space in the bed Rolling Eyes

Doug's starting to go a bit stir crazy, he's got work that he can do from home, but even that's not helping his mood.
We worked out this morning that this is the most time we've spent together in 18 years.

He's hoping to go back to work on the 9th of May, he will have been off for nearly 6 weeks (not good when you're a Contractor Crying or Very sad )

We've been to the doctors today and as long as he's on light office duties, Doug can go back to work on Monday Very Happy
