Another Quiet Day

After church and a bite of lunch, I went to the hospital to see Neil. What a shock!! Poor guy has lost alot of weight and with his head shaved for surgery and all the stitches (a 8-10 inch incision) and bruises I did not recognise him. If it hadn't been for Carol being there in the room, I would have thought I was in the wrong room. Well he spent most of my visit sleeping but he did respond when Carol told him I was there and I held his hand. He is getting movement back in his leg which is great news. Nothing much with his arm yet. Carol said she made him some "thickened" coffee for breakfast but when he tasted it, he made faces and comments how awful it tasted. I guess he has to have pureed food and thicken drinks. Otherwise he could choke. At least he was responding and that was great to see. They are hoping to move him to the Rehab floor this week if all goes well.
Came home, did some laundry and spent most the day relaxing in preparation for the upcoming busy busy week.

  1. Glad to hear that he is responding some. I have a feeling he has a long way to go
