Updates at last!

May 28, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

Sorry for the delay in these posts but life has been rather hectic. This Blog is turning into a health report rather than a photo scene but I offer no apologies as Tina's health is my prime motivation at present. So lets update her news.

Last Monday I took her into Bega hospital for her Stomach operation at last. We had to be there at 8am and Warren - our son and I were told quite bluntly to go away which was probably the best advise on the day. For whatever reason the op didn't start till about 11 so when I called at 12 for an update I was told to ring at 3pm. The hospital staff in fact rang to say that Tina was in the recovery room and should be able to be seen in half an hour. Off I drove back to Bega, a 45 minute drive, she was still in recovery and smiling.

Tracey, our daughter joined me shortly after and at app 6pm we were allowed into high dependency where he smiling Tina greeted us with a faint voice and yes, a smile. The op was a success and the dreaded "bag" had been avoided!

Of course she was tired and sore, but at least the worst was over. She spent most of the following day in the HD unit and was moved to the surgical ward on Tuesday afternoon. Still having problems with keeping food down but showing signs of improvement, her surgeon is pleased with her. 

7 Days after and Tina's now home. Not ready for running out in the garden but considerably improved. Eating a little more, sleeping better and the best news of all is that the biopsy on the stricture came back as totally benign.

I must thank all our friends for there get well cards, flowers, phone calls and good wishes. I'll continue to post updates as needed.

Today's picture seems appropriate and is probably one of the last roses of the season.

Cheers Peter
