But also in the meantime, I've began another long list of things we need in order to make the final push towards splashing in November. I've got another chartplotter on the way to mount in the cockpit and I'm seriously looking into a Sirius receiver (rim shot please), an AIS, and additional solar panels. Add to that a dinghy, some additional rigging pieces, the bottom paint, a few HDTV's for the cabins and a couple of more odds and ends and we're almost there. It will be a busy October.
Then, every Thursday and Saturday, Home Health arrives to do dressing changes but in addition, Physical Therapy has also been approved for twice per week. Now begins the long and painful road of rehabbing a foot that has been badly damaged. But just seeing her hobbling around in a walking boot has been encouraging to witness.
This is what $600k worth of medical bills will get you:
4 combined weeks at an acute care hosptial
3 1/2 months at a long term acute care facility
2 infectious disease doctors
2 pain management doctors
2 attending medical doctors
5 skin graft surgeries
1 surgical debridement
50 Hyperbaric dives
24 bedside debridements
67 dressing changes
2 months spent attached to a wound vac
- and we're not done yet.
So what did you do in 2014?
