A quiet day

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.

  1. Hi Simon:
    Have been thinking of you the past few days and I am happy that you are over the surgery and I send you all my best wishes for a speedy recovery. You and Derek will enjoy relating hospital stories.

  2. Hi, both to you Simon and Mrs. James

    For your information, Mrs. James, I’m Simon’s good friend Derek’s father, and you may know that Derek has just had surgery related to colon cancer. We’ve known Simon for a number of years. My wife visited Simon a couple of days ago, since both he and Derek were at the hospital at the same time. Derek came home yesterday and will continue his treatment and recovery here.

    We wish you, Simon, a speedy and full return to good health, as well as a quick return home. As they say, there’s no place like home.
