Today (every Monday) the home care nurse comes to the house, checks the wounds, and takes blood for lab workups. Today post-op week four, ESR was 10. We certainly not doctors but appearances are such that the antibiotics are effective treating the bone infection.

It was a rough weekend for Madison, no sugarcoating it. Hydration seemed evasive, she had challenges with stomach acid and a bouts of nausea, but seems better today. Part of recovering from major surgeries, there will be ups and downs.
Today was a pretty decent day! During her evening walk Madi made it about 5 houses, but it was really chilly so Madison decided to head back early and give the treadmill what-for. In this picture Madi is wearing sweatpants and nurses/therapy dogs Baily and PJ decided to join her... on the treadmill. You can see the 10 second video at this link -> https://youtu.be/WC7_XqjkiPc
