He waited to go to the OT all day yesterday, complaining how hungry and thirsty he was. They took him in at 4.30pm, the doctor looked at his blood test results and they postponed the surgery until this morning. I didn't tell you all yesterday but he's been taking Warfarin, which, of course, made the bleeding after the accident much worse than it would have been. The test result showed his blood was much too thin for an operation. They gave him an injection of vitamin K to reverse the Warfarin and he went back to the ward and had something to eat. He's scheduled for OT this morning. If everything goes to plan today, I think he may come home on Saturday.
Everything is good here. The kids have been wonderful. Jens came over yesterday, cleaned up the tree that had been cut down and took it all away. The others have planned to visit when he comes home from hospital. Last night I took the phone into the bed room and then slept for nine hours straight.
Hanno didn't want to look at the iPad yesterday but I told him about your messages of love and support. He was really touched and he asked me to send his thanks to all of you. It's a strange thing, isn't it. Although we know and have met quite a few of you, most we only know through your words here. Some said they were commenting for the first time, even though they've read here for years. It's incredible how we feel connected to all of you and from the response to this, that feeling seems to be felt by you too. Thank you, from Hanno and I, for helping us get through this. Reading your comments has help lift me up at the end of two very tough days. I am sure I have the most loving and supportive readers in the blogosphere. ♥
