Hump day and Things are looking good

Sorry bit late with the post this morning, you'll all be waiting for Chris to get back so you can get some timely posts, some colour and some pictures.

Usual start to the day, cuddle in bed with the kids, deal with all the morning kid things, dog, tidy up etc. Kids at school now and when I am done with this post I am off to see Chris. She just txt me and said she had a good nights sleep & is feeling good. The Specialist Doctor has been into visit this morning and he is very happy with things. They want to keep her in at least 1 more night to make absolutely sure that she is ok before they let her go home. So I'll give you a further updated later in the day when I'm back from visiting Chris.

Ok another apology, this time for no middle of the day post. It was me being busy or Steve was on the computer, so it had to wait until now. It's 5.15 pm and we are just home from visiting Chris.

So went up this morning and she was up in the lazyboy chair looking really good. I took up some magazines and her watch & earrings so she could feel a bit more like normal again. Some of the fluid that had built up all over her is starting to come off slowly and she is able to get around a bit more as well. She has had a few walks up the hall and been up & down to the loo a lot today. Anne & Jenny visited this morning and Janine at lunchtime.

I went home at about 1.30 to tend to the dog and popped back up with Steve and the kids at 3.30. She was feeling a bit tired & sore by then and was back in bed. We stayed for an hour and left her talking to Sandra, you know all that girlie type stuff. The Doc is due back in the morning to see her again and assess if she could go home tomorrow. I think she needs a little more time to recover properly and I know if she is not feeling right she will be telling him so.

Well it is great that she is on the mend and improving daily. Thanks for all comments of support and I'll update again tomorrow with more news.

Nite Nite from Stew [Mr C].

    So glad she is feeling better day by day and so glad the Dr is happy withher progress - Cathy

  12. Sounds like everything is getting back to a more normal situation. Glad to hear Chris is doing much better. Hope she gets home soon.

  13. I am so glad that she is feeling so much better. Tell her to try not to over do it. And yeah, I know that is like the pot calling the kettle black!! :-)

    Probably a good idea to stay at least another night. the temptation to start doing things, once you get home, is just sooooooo strong.

    Hugs and more wishes for a speedy recovery!!

  14. Chris, I posted on June 30th, just for you. When you feel better, take a quick look. I hope you are up and about soon!
