A short blog tonight.
Moral of the story. Never let your guard down.
Sat with Pete this morning in his new 16th floor room.
Finally they came to get him for the operation and he was in quite a bit of pain.
So off he went and so did El and I. We returned a jumper and El bought a few new things trying to cope with the cool hospital room.
Peter came back about an hour after we returned , so 4 hours later, and was singing and trying to dance. Pain reduced by drugs!
So far it was looking like the epidural was working.
The doctor arrived and we discussed what had happened in the operation.
The arteries are pumping / the big one in the back of the foot is working well. It was a severe crush injury and the one supplying the front of the foot isn’t getting enough blood to the first 3 toes. He said he would give them another go till Sunday then a decision would have to be made and he would probably have to take the 3 off. We were originally told just the tips but it looks like the whole toe.
The bones are still ok and the nerves are still a problem.
But the epidural block seems to work and he is pain free.
So El and I left him to sleep and went for a walk.
We got back from having something to eat and drink and I went back to the hotel and El to the room. Then I heard from her that he had woken and was screaming in pain.
Not sure why. The nurses are dealing with it and the drugs are flowing.
So I’m not sure what tomorrow will bring. It’s a marathon.
