Latest update on my friend Priscilla
She is recovering very well. She went home from the hospital July 27th and is getting around remarkably on her own with just her wheelchair and walker. Last week she got her staples out and is now wearing a compression stocking to shape her stump. This week she goes in to have a cast taken of her stump so they can begin making her first temporary prosthetic. She said her permanent one won't be for at least a year since it takes that long for the stump to completely heal and form to it's final shape. We are still going on our cruise at the end of next month, but even if she has a prosthetic by then, we are of course taking the wheelchair. We don't have a handicap cabin since that is not what we booked and there are none available, but she said she will be fine as long as they have a shower chair we can put in the shower. And she is still in good spirits. I called her last Thursday to see what the doctor said and that's when she told me about going back this week for the casting, etc. So I asked her what kind of prosthetic would her first one be....and in typical joking Priscilla form...she said, "I don't know....guess a stick with a foot!"
