Tales from a hospital bed 1

Three days after my major op I’m alert (well I am right now, it comes and goes) and healing. The process all went as expected and now I have a couple of weeks in the hospital where patience will be my watch word.

That’s easy to say, but I have to sit around the ward for almost two weeks until I have the trach removed, hopefully. There is daily testing, poking, cleaning, drugs and more drugs to colour the day.

Fortunately the lovely Dinah comes to keep me entertained, and I fall asleep. Ah yes sleep. It’s been intermittent. The pain and testing disturbs any long rest, and so I fall asleep when visitors come.

So if you’re at a loose end drop me a line, you will help the day pass with a little more flavour and boy does it need that. I have all forms of communication here, but no voice of course. Hopefully that’ll be back in a short while. Until then I can entertain with these dazed messages. Do write back!

    Hi Lee.
    Glad everything is going well and you are on the mend.
    You need some distraction to break the monotony. Have you considered audio books? Audible do a free trail. Ideal for breaking up the day and getting you out of yourself.

    Wishing you a speedy recovery
