It’s been awhile since my last post. So much has happened.
Life is adjusting. Pete is adjusting. He amazes us with his resilience. He scares me with his activities.
Having Elena by his side is the best tonic to recovery. They have been busy planning their wedding. Or weddings I should say.
The wedding in Cambodia is going ahead in Dec 20 but the official wedding is happening here at the Brisbane registry office on Nov 25. They had a meeting there last month and got the go ahead to make it official.
They returned excited.
The planning started. Peter’s friend Trudy immediately offered to have a celebration party at her house in West End.
Rehab at RBH has started but seems much more low key than I thought it would. He goes in Monday and sees a Physio who checks the wound, gives him a bandage which gets smaller each time to shape the stump ready for a prosthesis and asks if he’s doing his exercises.
Pete asked about interrupting rehab by going to Cambodia for his wedding and a final holiday to pack up and say goodbye. The all clear was given so flights were booked. They return towards the end of January.
His prosthetic leg will be fitted in February by which time the stump will be healed and ready for a new leg.
New clothes have been bought for the weddings. It was fun to go with El to choose her two dresses. El selected clothes for him so Pete will look very handsome in his new gear.
So life goes on.
