|Electric Wheelchair with Roho Cushion
Seriously ... it hasn't been something that even entered my head. At least not until after the the immediate emergency was dealt with. He's been through quite a lot; 2 heart surgeries, a heart attack (from a blood clot after one of the surgeries), a hip replacement, acute lymphoblastic leukemia, a back surgery (after being wheelchair bound for a year), spinal surgery in his neck (after being unable to move his upper body), several years of physio, skin cancer, and now, diabetes.
You wonder how a person can go through so much and still keep on going. But he does. The thing is, all of those hospitalizations would have been the perfect time to grab health related photos, but ... did I? Not so much.
I did manage a few, but mostly you spend your time in the hospital (and there was a lot) with the person, or running errands back and forth for them.
(And if you want the truth, it drove me nuts too.)
Anyway, right now, beyond the diabetes and continued physio, he's doing just dandy. In March he'll be 4 years out of chemo and so far still clear. Eventually he'll need another heart surgery (aorta valve replacement), but right now, he's pretty much his normal, pre-everything self (well, a little older of course, so less capable of some things).
On to the photos (oh, you can use the photos above too). These are the ones I have immediately handy - I have some other things as well (my daughter was a personal support worker, so there's a few of her things I've photographer, but don't have the pictures processed yet), but those can wait for another day.
