The first couple of days required a bit of adjustment. I couldn’t drive because I couldn’t rest my back against a seat or twist it. The triangular pillow I bought for Husband was awesome in keeping my lower back away from sofa backs etc. It hasn’t hurt at all but the skin was red, angry and very itchy under the dressing they gave me.
For some weird reason the glue stuck to my back but not to the dressing, which came loose. Husband addressed this with alcohol to remove the glue and congealed bits of t shirt and a fresh dressing. So the one with cancer administers the first aid. And goes to work today. And drives. And does the food shopping.
Meanwhile the one without cancer sits feeling rather gingerly on the edge of her seat feeling useless.
