|Superior Threads order|
The patient, now 11 days post op, is doing amazing! Although his incision is larger than the seven inches the surgeon had said. The incision must be in the 12 to 14 inch range. It was surprising to see how large it was when the home health nurse removed the bandage. She removed his 22 staples and the wound looked like it was healing perfectly! No wonder he felt like he was getting pinched! When I shared the photo I took of the wound, my sweetie said one could fit a Thanksgiving turkey in that space! It is wonderful to see him moving around pain free and even better to watch him planning more activities! We think he will receive the go ahead for driving next Thursday.
The above photo shows the silk threads that I ordered from Superior Threads. I like the way the silk embeds into the quilting and provides texture. I can buy a few YLI spools at a fabric store; but, since I use quite a bit, I'd rather purchase the product in a larger quantity. Plus, Superior has a lot more variety!
