Thanks for all the advice we have gotten on managing Carol's pain. Keep it coming. So what has happened in the last week or so. Carol got her teeth cleaned. Something she always enjoys. She has been able to make it out and complete her Christmas shopping in a couple trips. Her prosthesis(s) seem to be fitting much better, and she has been getting around much better again. Most of her family was here over the weekend, and it's always nice for her to have them all around. Chloe is getting super excited for the holiday it seems. The tree, decorations, and now snow are bringing it all together for her. There are lots of cool things anonymous people have been doing for us the past couple weeks. If you read this, thank. Back to Carol. Her hair, seems to have stopped falling out, and is growing back...I think. Her left arm from the previous surgery, looked to be almost healed, but a very small area of the incision from the surgery, has not quite healed as I think maybe it should have, and I think she needs to have it looked at again. Her right hip is all but healed up. No changed visually. Her skin seems to be smoothing from her grafts pretty well, and pain around those areas seems to be diminishing a little. Hopefully she will have a bump up in energy for walking and the such soon. Spirit wise she is doing ok. This time of year is tough not being able to see, for her. Plus her brother who passed away, his birthday was on xmas day. Up's and down's as expected.
