Update on Dad

Wednesday, 8 October 2008
Thank you for all your messages of support in my last post, they mean such a lot.

My dad is recovering well, although I'm not sure if he feels it at the moment. He's very tired, which is to be expected following anaesthetic and sedation. He was only on the Critical Care Unit for just under two days before going back to a normal ward.
Yesterday I took him for a walk around the ward before the physio arrived to test him going up and down a flight of stairs. That left him very tired out. I think it's that that he is finding just a little hard to get used to as he's always been very active. Hopefully, in a few months, after rest and cardiac rehabilitation he should be feeling much better, it just takes time.
We're not sure at the moment whether he will come straight home from the hospital or whether they will transfer him back to our local hospital for a little while due to the situation with my mum. Although she is now out of hospital herself, my dad is worrying about whether she will be able to cope looking after him. The last thing he needs at the moment is stress, so we're trying to arrange something with the occupational therapists, who are aware of the situation.
On a crafting note, my darling husband has treated me to the entire set of Copic Ciao Markers!! He said that I needed a treat after everything that I've been through this year. I can't believe it! They're due to arrive today, so I hope it doesn't take me too long to get the hang of them!! All I need now is to make a start on my craft room and everything will be perfect!
Thanks for stopping by.
