Our flight was good and Pete enjoyed being a celebrity with the Courier Mail waiting to interview him when he arrived.
Then to the serious stuff of being admitted to yet another hospital.
Mater A&E is not a pretty place. Not like the 16th floor of Bangkok hospital. But the engaging nature and sense of humour of the nurses and doctors was the tonic Peter needed. He responded to them so well , so El and I headed home for a much needed shower, unpack and a bite to eat.
Our beautiful neighbour Penny called in with groceries, Wendy left a comfort care package on the doorstep and lovely MJ, a therapy friend, arrived with lasagne and chicken. The ultimate comfort food ( so different from Fuji our Japanese restaurant in Bangkok).
Thank you all.
Back to the hospital to find out what the plan is for Peter. Dr Ben outlined what happens tomorrow. Lea my medical advisor was a true friend and offered suggestions of what to ask.
A big operation. We will find out the extent of his injuries and the possibilities for repair.
Peter is still holding up and being strong.

Glad you’ve arrived. After a bumpy landing on our return from Shanghai I feared for Pete for the landing. I did my nursing training at the Mater a long time ago. Dedicated staff! Say no more but maybe no a flat screen TV before every bed. Still he’s back in Brisbane and the best decisions will be made to have him walking without pain.
So good you’ve all arrived safely. What a boost for you to be back with family and friends, not to mention Aussie humour. Loving prayers for the next big stage.
So glad you’re all home. I’m sure Pete will get the best possible care over at the Mater. We’re all praying for Pete. Hope you, Steve & El are looking after yourselves too. x
