We got good news after his other doctor's appointment last week. He had the drain removed which is what was causing him the most discomfort and is doing well. The surgeon said the wound is healing very well and he was given the go ahead to return to work when he felt that he could handle the pain and discomfort associated with his job. He is a P&D Truck Driver so this pretty much means he will be sitting on his wound daily while doing his runs and hooking up to and from trailers. Robert's plan is to return to work tomorrow (Tuesday) and do part of his normal day as he want to stay close enough to the terminal if it did get too unbearable. He has a wonderful boss who is supporting his wishes for the duty for a few weeks. He has another follow up appointment scheduled with the surgeon on August 5th in which he (the doctor) thinks he will be healed enough to be released. Prayers work and we thank you so very much for them all.
Hi everyone and thank you very much for all that you have done, words cannot describe how appreciative that we feel right now. I just wanted to take a quick moment to pass on the report from one of the doctors today. He saw the doctor in charge of his antibiotics today and we are blessed to say the PICC line has been removed and is now taking an oral antibiotic for round about the next week. Its not much but its progress. He is also being incredibly stubborn and drove himself to the doctor's office. Can you say stir crazy. He is really looking forward to getting back to normal. The doctor also said the wound was looking good too. He goes to see his surgeon on Friday. Hopefully more great news!!! Please continue to pray.
