Yes! It's True. I'm going home tomorrow (Thursday 10th).
The x-rays showed something good. The bone ends have actually met at one point!!. Indeed there is a slight overlap, proving that I had definitely been producing new bone before the infection. Indeed it looks like, although my leg will be shorter than originally, it may be 10mm or so longer than I expected. Bit of a bonus.
All it's got to do now is heal properly.(Come on body, you can do it!)
Mr Groom has agreed that I can continue to dress the leg wound at home myself without the intervention of a district nurse. This suits me as I am fairly sure that the original MRSA infections came via that route.
I am going to miss everyone on Twining ward. I know this sounds strange but, I'll be a bit sad going home. However my dogs will be pleased to see me (Probably not, knowing them!. Studied attitudes of indifference all three!).
I've been told to be ready to go home at 11am tomorrow, that's when transport will come to collect me. I shan't hold my breath!.
