Skin graft tomorrow

B is getting better. He was able to eat today for the first time since Sunday night. He was also able to stand up and walk for 7 feet with the help from two young ladies and a walker. The hospital is planning to do a minor skin graft to him tomorrow to cover the wounds. I suggest to get Dr. G (the surgeon) to be the donor of the new skin since he was the one who cut up B’s leg in the first place. My suggestion did not work. Once the skin graft is done, he will need to be in bed for another 5 days. It sounds like he won’t be home till the end of next week.



  1. I have this vision of the surgeon dancing about the OR in pain as he attempts to remove a layer of his skin and attach it to Bob. Perhaps best I leave that vision be. Give Bob my best wishes for a speedy recovery.

  2. Glad that the surgery went well, and esp. that it is finally behind you; so you can focus on the positives of recovery and enjoying the small pleasures of summer (like relaxing on the back deck with a tea or beer 😉

  3. Patsy, we are glad to hear that Bob is on the mend. We were gone for a month and actually just heard from Marjorie that Bob was in the hospital.

    Please know that we are thinking of you and hoping for the best as I am sure you both are doing. I, too, think it would be a really good idea if the doctors who make the decisions to perform invasive surgery were taking it a lot more personally.

    Hang in there!!
