Two days before our move to Missouri, I developed a pressure sore on my bottom. This was a result of sitting in my chair for too long a period of time without frequent weight shifts. When we arrived in St Louis the sore had expanded and I went straight to bed where I have been for the past three months.
Pressure ulcers are easy to get but take a long time to heal. Fortunately, my sore is now closed and I’m going to be able to get back to my chair … a little at a time. This episode has limited my ability to communicate with my many friends and fans. I’m hoping to continue my therapy in the coming weeks to get my strength back.
I sincerely appreciate the continued concern that many of you have expressed and for your support of the Beaton Store. I especially enjoy reading the many comments I am receiving on my news articles.
