Well, today has been another good day. Feeling even better and more agile. The physiotherapist even took me up and down two flights of the fire stairs and gave me the tick of approval. So, Day 2 has been great.
Surgeon's visit resulted in another cryptic message about departure. It won't be tomorrow, as the clips holding the wound won't be removed until Tuesday morning, sooooo... maybe I can go after they've been taken out. Hoping to be home by Tuesday night.
Tomorrow night the surgeon is making a presentation to staff here about a peritonectomy (that's my op!). I wonder if he's ever had a patient sit in the back row :)
My stalwart friend, Roslyn, has returned to her own home today. She has been an absolute gem and made this experience as comfortable and hassle-free as it could have been. She has been staying in Sydney at a hostel adjacent to the hospital and has appeared with her cheery smile, offers and suggestions of help, stimulating company, quiet company and necessary errands - on a daily basis. It's hard to express the level of gratitude I feel. I can only say that I hope that each of you has at least one friend such as Roslyn.
Thanks, Ros XX
