The infection in my lower leg, well all the doctors think that there is no more to worry about. So I hope, they are right, and that I will be able to handle it a bit better from now on.

From the 14th to the 28th of March I had a lovely two weeks with my son in Benalla, Victoria. Before that, that is from the 7th to the 14th of March, Martin and his dog Millie were here with me in Dapto, and on the 13th of March we did attend the wedding of one of my granddaughters. During this one week stay here I first did get this itchy dermatitis on both of my lower legs which may have eventuated from doing a bit of work in the garden!

So, Martin drove me to the doctors for some prescription. Towards the end of my stay in Benalla, one of the sores had flared up into a pretty bad infection. Back in Dapto, I was prescribed some antibiotics as well as several more visits to the medical treatment room. Two weeks after that it was detected, I suffered from ‘hypertension’. Now they are working on it to get my blood pressure down!

  1. I had to do a lot with the medical profession these last few weeks. I can count myself lucky that I am still allowed to stay in my own home! It does look a little bit brighter now for I was told today I might be able to get a bit more help from next week on. 🙂

  2. Thank you very much, Sweet Carolyn! 🙂
    Yes, I am very lucky that I can still be in my own home.
    I have no dog, only a huge Teddy Bear . . .
    Millie I had to leave behind with Martin in Benalla, Victoria.
    My home is in Dapto, NSW, some 600 km away from Benalla.
    It was a great holiday for me when I could recently visit Martin and Millie in Benalla! 🙂
    Love and Hugs from me to you! Yours, Uta 🙂

  3. Very pleased to hear you had some real quality time with your family, including the most important canine! And also that your leg is responding to treatment, hopefully will soon be completely healed. Blessings and hugs

  4. Thank you, dear Catt. and blessings and hugs from me too! 🙂
    Yesterday, on Thursday, I had some real quality time with some of my family too: We went for three hours to a beautiful park with four children of our family!

    There were heaps of other children there too, since the kids were still on their Easter holidays. Granddaughter Natasha was great in watching her nephews, aged 4 – 6 – and 8 years, as well as 18 months old niece. My daughter Monika had picked me up from home with my rollator. The two older kids are the kids of one of Monika’s sons, the two younger kids are the kids of one of her daughters. So all of them are my great-grandchildren! I enjoyed watching all of them playing to their heart’s content in this beautiful park area with lots of other children and lots and lots of playground equipment on a perfectly beautiful sunny autumn day. For lunch we had fish and chips from a nearby shop. We had brought our own drinks. I was so grateful to Monika that she had asked me to come along with them! 🙂

    There was opportunity for some interesting conversations with granddaughter Natasha. She is a care worker. To be able to have some longer talks with her was very interesting! 🙂
