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.
