great news, csalt!
My Dad survived all this very well two years ago, so I'm sure everything will be allright soon!

Visited today and was truly amazed at how well he looks. Good colour back in his face and all the lower back pain has gone. There's even a mention of him coming home at the weekend! It is just truly wonderful

My prayers are with you and your DH as well. As has been said, there are amazing things going on in the treatment of cancer. Keep your chin up. Things will go well.

Yesterday the Consultant said he was going to discharge him today.
He was desperately tired, not sleeping at night due to the noise. He was also finding movement from bed to chair etc rather shaky and very painful.
He was to be sent home by ambulance as I said I couldn't possibly take the risk of trying to assist him into the car in that shaky state. If he slipped between car and pavement I couldn't pick him up and he could rip his stitches as well. However he phoned this morning to say that they were keeping him in at least another day as they found his haemoglobin was very low and he had a temperature. He had a better night though as they gave him a sleeping tablet. He said he felt altogether more human today but he was still immensely drowsy. He only had the op 4 days ago. Apparently they like to discharge them as quickly as possible because of the risk of this dreadful MRSA bug. He may now come home tomorrow although I don't think he will mind too much if it is Monday instead.
It's such a HUGE relief to know that all went well and they are fairly optimistic that there isn't any cancer left behind.

Your kindness in not forgetting him is truly appreciated

csalt, thanks for letting us know how he is doing. If he is running a temp it's best for them to keep him a day or two more. It's best to be cautious. So, happy for you that things look so well and he will be home soon.Continued prayers for his complete recovery.

They've kept him in again today as the haemoglobin is still too low. They are probably going to give him a transfusion tonight more blood tests tomorrow and review it again than. He's in the best place. He is doing 'laps' of the ward regularly now to get some exercise and eating a little better.
