I sewed the backing on my quilt and got ready to tack it. But first I was going to drive Jon to a doctor’s appointment. We expected to be back by 4:30. My plan was to work on my quilt when we did.
But it turned out that Jon had a wound on his toe that was ulcerated. By the time the necessary procedure was done Jon had a special shoe to wear for at least a week, antibiotics, and a bandage that needs to be replaced every day.
I don’t usually go to Jon’s appointment with him, but I was glad that I went to this one. Not only for emotional support, but I think it would have been uncomfortable for him to have to drive home.
The nice part is that Jon is really good-natured when unexpected things like this happen to him. He’s doesn’t complain but he’s not being stoic, just accepting. And he has a high pain tolerance so he bears all his surgeries, and there have been many in the past months, well.
Although as he read me the post-op instructions he did try to slip in that I was supposed to wait on him hand and foot for several days.
We both had a good laugh about that.
