VAC Therapy now installed

and working.   This week is going to be so much better then last week. The District nurse and the Nurse Specialist turned up around 10am.  Putting on the dressing and the training took just over an hour.  I carry the pump and drain canister in a black bag with a detachable shoulder strap. If you want to know more   Fascinating read.  
I just feel so relieved.  Mine will probably be on for more then 5 days and the dressing itself will be changed on Wednesday, Friday and Monday and I empty the canister when necessary. As the pump makes a noise like a coffee filter machine  I don't think I'll go to the pictures this week I may well be asked for a coffee :-)x
