The attached photo was Sunday lunch, a very nice paella followed by lomo de cerdo (pork) with green beans and asparagus, some lemon to squeeze over the paella and a tasty chocolate dessert. 218 more words

My Own Journey

Homeward bound

I’m out, we’re in the car, and we’re heading home!

Going via the pharmacy to pick up a load of painkillers and other meds.

All my tubes have been removed, and I’ve got instructions how to look after the wound at home, it’s all good :-) I’ve also got instructions from Lucinda to defuzz my face, which is fair enough. 213 more words

I'm 4 days post-op

The attached photo shows the extent of my injury and the 42 staples holding it together. It’s usually covered with a dressing so Lucinda took this photo while the dressing was being changed. 366 more words

Finally was allowed in to see Richard at 7.15 this evening. He was in the recovery suite where he will stay overnight. He looked a little battered and bruised, swollen lip etc but he still seems the same Richard. 118 more words

All fine

Richard’s operation went well. I even got to see him for a minute though I don’t suppose he’ll remember. Back to see him at 6pm. More updates after that.

My Own Journey

Just another day...

Richard made a good point last night. We’ve been hanging on this operation date for the last 18 months. It’s governed where we are and when we go on holiday even to the extent of diverting phones when on a plane in case the call came through. 128 more words
