The Surgeon (Dr. Winters) came in and with a big smile on her face said that he did great. That he looked better than she expected. That what was flaming red yesturday is pink today. There was no more infection. So the plan is to let him rest today and then tomorrow they will try dressing change with oral pain meds and if he can handle it then he can go home tomorrow night. With a home health nurse coming twice a day to change bandages. She did say it may take up to 6 weeks to have it healed up properly.
She said he could get up and move as much as he wants but not to over do it. She reminded me that it takes a long time for these things to heal and it is a slow process.
