Sorry I've been absent all these days,but Everything is beyond my control around here.
Charles' leg wound is still very bad!
Not easy to see your doctor when you need to (even though he's been your personal doctor for more than 20 years) ...and they say "Go to the emergency room!" OK-That would be fine....except nothing is done there either.
C.finally saw his reg doctor again today (a pre-set follow-up appointment...he had called the office early this week, hoping to get in sooner, but his call was not even returned)
....So-NOW they see the wound needs opening up and recommend he go to a wound center for treatment... the wound is backed up with stale blood ...and has been this way all along...Every person who has seen his leg, had to see this condition from the start-because it hasn't changed at all!! He called and is hoping to hear back and get something done today! That's doubtful!
Our anniversary plans seem 'out the window,' though C. still thinks we can make the trip! I don't see how that will happen with things as they are. The $$$ spent for the hotels for 4 nights is 'down the drain,' as far as I can see! C. says we can't lose that much $$$ so we'll make the trip!
OH BOY! Just got a call back from the wound center and they can't see him until Monday morn-and we were supposed to leave early Tuesday for the drive to Savannah-about a 5-to-6 hour drive! So I'm insisting, the trip is out of the question!
This has been a most stressful time for us all- and painful for Charles, and our plans were doomed from the start! I'm so angry and bewildered at the ineptness of the doctors he has seen and TRIED to see and failed! -and I'm especially 'put out' with our family doctor who has not been interested enough to give Charles the attention he needed,relying on his associates in his practice to see him and evaluate his condition and decide on what to do for him.
The kids have planned an early anniversary celebration for us here on Sunday- so we will at least have that!
That's the way it is at the moment!
