Yes, It's Wednesday here too. It's been rather a long Wednesday. Ian was first on the list. I phoned at 11.00a.m...still in surgey. 2.00p.m. ..not back to the recovery room yet. 4.00p.m. same! Also the Ward Clerk kept telling me that I could have no information by telephone because of confidentiality; even though I pointed out I was next of kin.
Our daughter phoned and 'gave them a piece of her mind!'
The Ward Sister phoned me at 5.00p.m. . She said that Ian was back on the ward, was conscious and comfortable. They had not been able to do the keyhole surgery.
Imagine my delight when Ian phoned me himself a little later ( from his bedside) The prostate was too enlarged to remove by keyhole . His Consultant had been to see him and told him that all had gone well except it had taken longer because of having to revert to open surgery. Ian said he was very sore but relatively pain free.
A friend of our has said that he is coming tomorrow to take to and bring me home from the hospital. Everyone has been so overwhelmingly kind ( including all you DC's ) I am able to drive there myself but others are so generously trying to ease the burden; it's a gift to have such friends.
I shall see him tomorrow. That's all the news for now.
Thanky-you all for your kindness.

I'm glad you'll get to see him tomorrow, Csalt! Sounds like it's good news!

Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.

Wow that is great that he could talk to you today! My father had the keyhole surgery, but sounds like recovery was not as good as your DH! Go your DH! And so quick coming home too! Well, that is where he will heal the best. I am so pleased. He'll need to seriously take it easy and be loved lots, so let others do the driving, get some good healthy food in for him and prepare to spoil him.

Not for a few more days yet Lulu but believe me when he does come home he will be cherished. Not to the point of claustrophobia though. We'll just go at his pace and with his needs and likes or dislikes.I don't want him to feel 'hemmed in' it won't help his recovery.

Oh goodness - my prayers, good vibes, & wishes are winging their way to you "over the pond".

My dad just this week got out of hospital due to prostate problems & I know how worrying this is.

My best thoughts are definitely with you!

Just phoned the hospital a short while ago. Our daughter's words must have been taken on board as the Ward Sister came on the line to say that he'd had a reasonable night and was out of bed eating his breakfast!

I'll be seeing him this afternoon. Still sitting here in my dressing gown at the moment 8.45a.m. Must head for the shower.
This is such a good place to visit when you havn't slept well. Always warm, friendly and inviting. Just like a home
