the long and not so winding road
My daily drive to the hospital in Kentville has ended....John is home! Much to our surprise, he was released yesterday after 3 days...the earliest release they do after a total knee replacement. No more drives on roads like this:Don't get me wrong, the drive is lovely. The roads are not. Nova Scotia roads are not great at the best of times, but spring brings many many potholes. Good thing I have a travel companion keeping her eyes on the road!(never fear, I did not take these photos while driving! I was safely pulled over to the side of the road with flashers on). So...John is home and heavily drugged. VON comes in daily to change the dressing on his knee (and I will be forever thankful that I don't have to do that myself!). Physio at the Bridgewater hospital starts tomorrow...only a 20 minute drive. Woo hoo!
