WooHoo! 56 staples were painlessly removed from Dave's thigh and hip today at the doctor's office. He didn't even put a bandage around his arm this time and just the brace supports it. Still no mention of PT because he has to heal first and cannot bear weight during the next two weeks until his next doctor's appointment. He is doing well at transferring to the wheelchair and tomorrow we try a shower and a haircut. Tonight I took him to Publix and he almost cried being out in the real world. Ah yes, it's the simple things now, one step at a time.
