Very slowly looking to be on the mend

Goodmorning everybody!

It looks if Jan's wounds are a bit on the mend. He is still loosing some wound-fluid, and walks around(well, if he walks) with some extra bandage and even little towels around it, to catch it.
His left leg is behaving very well, no pain there, but the right one is still causing some trouble.
The leg is still swelling from time to time, too much fluid, but, very slowly, seems to go better.
The wound there is still hurting from time to time, and has to be looked after well.
Finally persuaded him to sit on the couch or chair, with a little bench in front of him, covered with a pillow, and then he can put his leg on it. I think it helps and gives his leg and the wound more rest.
The surgeon said it would take 2 or 3 weeks to heal completely, before he could walk again without trouble.
He will just have to "sit"it out, I guess.
But he walks around in the house every now and then, to keep the "household inside his leg"working.
Trying not to fuss too much, it makes him nervous LOL!

I think today will be a good day for him, to sit for a while in the garden, temperatures will go up all week, and quite some sunshine is expected too. Not very much rain, lately, so perhaps it will be a good thing that I water the garden somewhere today.
Still having tomatoes from our plants, although they are heading to their end. Gosh, we had a good crop from them. And they are tasty too!
Must have them next year again.

Not started yet on the designing, I think I just have not the quiet mood for it yet. And this week we also have to dig in a lot of paperwork and letters have to be written and such, all to council and health security benefit offices, Yak, hate that but has to be done.

That+s about all that is going on here now, but first issue now is to have Jan better and healed, then other things are on the list.

Wishing you all a wonderful day, you deserve it, for leaving me all those uplifting comments.

It's so good to hear that Jan is up and about and starting to heal. He still has to take it easy though. He'll be just fine, he has a great nurse.

Don't worry about the designing now. You have lots to do just tending to your hubby.

I think our tomatoes have said "good bye" too. Fall is already settling in here. This morning the temperature is only 49 degrees F. Brrr. I'm just not ready for the cold!

You have a fabulous day, hugs, Edna B.

So happy to hear Jan is healing and is allowing you to assist him some. I know it is hard to not want to "mother" him, but just watch and aid if he really needs it. The process of healing includes walking and waiting on oneself. The right is probably taking longer because that was the worst to repair...will continue to pray for quick and complete healing.
I had a terrific weekend, it was cool and NOT HUMID as promised so some fall cleaning got accomplished....the ceiling fans were all turned off (as was the AC for 2 days) and cleaned thoroughly (I hate standing on ladders!). Then I opened the windows and decided to wash and rehang all the drapes AND wash all the windows inside and out! I even dusted all the wooden blinds too! Feels good to have sore muscles from working....ROFL.
Hope your lovely weather continues and you get to put up some of those tomatoes to use or eat over the winter. Have a terrific week and try to rest some!
Hugs to you both,

Hello again Kyra, Thank you for the updates.
It is good that Jan is taking turns moving around then sitting for a while. If he does one or the other too much at a time it could be harmful.
It is also good that you will be getting the important matters and health issues cared for first...
