Friday, 2 days after surgery, and time to start to cut back on the pain medication which is a mixed blessing. Simon apparently walked around the ward this morning which exhausted him completely, also the stitches, bruising and chest assault are starting to hurt. Simon now has a phone, but asked to rest today, would prefer not to have calls or visitors yet, until he feels stronger, so we did not go in . We hope that tomorrow will be a different story. He originally expected to be home on Sun, but I guess, we have to wait and see. They seem to be taking good care of him, though we were unable to open the windows or organise any fresh air for him. Hope he’s not too hot on top of everything else. The good news is that the worst is over and he will, I am sure , improve every day. Will give you more news tomorrow.
