ABC Wednesday. R is for RECOVERY!


as you can see he looks tired but happy!
Sue here again. It is uncanny because, just last evening, Max and I discussed that I would do a post for him for ABC Wednesday, on his recovery, and I just saw that Walksfarwoman left a message on the previous post saying exactly that!

So the good news is that Max finally moved out of Intensive Care today, and into a normal ward. Yay! He has suddenly turned the corner, and his recovery is really accelerating. On Friday, about 5 hours after he came out of surgery, things were really touch and go. He remembers the nurses shouting "stay with us, stay with us..." Saturday was a bit better, but Sunday the wheels fell off a bit, he was in a lot of pain and battling to breathe. His blood oxygen saturation was too low, and it turned out he had an infection in one lung, which is now being treated. So it has been a bumpy ride, but he is now well on the road to recovery.

He asked me to tell you all how much he has appreciated the goodwill and care that you have all shown.

Hey Ian, don't get too cocky about the fishing, according to the doctor the op will take 25 years off dad, so he will be more like your brother than your dad, he might end up kicking YOUR butt at fishing! Anyway i showed him your message tonight, it made him laugh!

Lovely smile Max!

Sue, the other 'R' is for romance. By the way he writes about you we can tell how much he loves and adores you. In a strange way this may have added many more years to this spectacularly successful relationship. Blessings on you both. x
