Around the middle of the day the nurse asked how he was feeling and Pete replied with his usual smile. ‘It’s the best day ever’ the nurse giggled and he corrected himself and said ‘ since I came to hospital’.
He had a good nights sleep, woke up feeling quite good and continued to doze all day. He needed to catch up on sleep and start to heal.
The epidural continues to work and allow him rest.
We bought him a roller massage glove and El gave him a beautiful massage on his legs and back. He loved it. Staying on his back is taking its toll.
Steve got jealous so I gave him a back massage then gave El a long massage. Her back, shoulders, legs and head. She really relaxed and she really deserved to.
Then Camilla arrived. She’s a gorgeous Swiss girl living in PP with Randy, a lovely Australian guy, a journalist, who helped Steve in PP.
The day passed and then it was 4.30 and they came for Peter for his next operation. This one was to clean and assess the wound. To see about circulation.
Peter left happy and we hoped he would return happy. He did. Not singing. This time jiggling his legs, to get the circulation going, so he said!
To pass the 3 hours he was gone, we went to the Marriott Hotel’s 48 th floor open air bar to have a cocktail and watch the sun set. A little R&R was much needed, but when we’re away from him we miss him. So we mostly chatted about him telling funny stories and wishing he was with us.
So today a quiet day
Tomorrow we meet the doctors to hear about today’s cleaning and assessing, perhaps moving closer to a decision about toes and flying home.
Thanks for your ongoing messages of support.
