Yesterday, Lizzie went to the local clinic to have the staples removed from the incisions made during surgery to repair the broken ankle.
have to say, the work is very neat but one if the staples had pierced a nerve and was extremely painful to get out and of course, it had to be the one that was the most difficult to remove. Lizzie said it was like an electric shock!
Anyway, still has to be off load bearing for another 2 weeks so we are moving on to the island of Krk for a fortnight before the final check up x-ray. Then we will be taking the short route through to Turkey via Serbia and North Macedonia. Planning to make a diversion stop in Vukovar, scene if some of the worst fighting and mass destruction in the whole civil war. Then crossing over into Serbia at a backwater post where hopefully the traffic will be light.
Full recovery will be a long road but at least she is determined!
