4.00 am today Malcolm was re-admitted to a surgical ward as he was in such pain. Many tests later he is being kept in to see where and what the infection is and nil by mouth. He is back to the drip feeds as well. He is a little better especially as his cancer nurse reassured him he was actually doing fine and all this was to be expected after the surgery he had. Also his heart rate is speedy and they put this down to the pneumomia he had last week. It is amazing what you find out if you wait long enough. No wonder he is very tired. No one had told me this.
Basically being my husband he is doing too much too soon and will not just sit down and let the world go by. Now he has to or suffer the consequences. He must also take all the medication and pain relief offered and not be macho. He is his own worst enemy where medication is concerned.
So my little Toyota is going to make more trips twice a day up to the MRI for at least the next 3 days I think as the doctors try to sort him out. At least surgery is ruled out at present.
I am now very tired having had 3 hours sleep today and none the night before. So hot bath and bed. A new day tomorrow for us both.
