Just had a lovely chat with Danibelle. Dad (Dr Al) and Wendy arrived yesterday shortly followed by Lisa and Andrew. They went to visit Russ yesterday and disappointingly for them all Russ was sedated due to the procedure that Dani described yesterday.
This morning they arrived to find poor Russ face down on a massage style bed (with a hole for his face). They have kept him sedated for the duration of today as having him lying face down is the quickest way to clear his chest and drain the mucus.
The nurse on duty today was new and didn’t have the same command of the English language as her colleagues have shown previously but it is assumed by some crude translations that Russ will be under further sedation for the rest of today and with his previous track record for waking after sedation we can probably assume that he won’t be awake tomorrow either. This is probably the best thing for him as it will be very disorientating for him to come around face down.
Russ’s scar from his initial surgery on his back (bone realignment) is healing well although he does have a large haemotoma above the wound. This is not giving any cause for concern though.
On a positive note, my dad has checked in to the most glamorous hotel in Toulon (this will come as no surprise to those of you that know my dad!) and has whisked everyone off there for supper and a late afternoon swim!
Dani, Amber, Dad, Wendy, Lisa and Andrew are all flying home tomorrow so Russ will be on his own for 24 hours for the first time since his arrival…. 🙁
…..Thankfully Roy will be there late Monday pm…hopefully he will be awake by then.
Oh and Russ ….still nothing to report ….bloody Kate hasn’t had the baby yet… 🙂 Loads of love Margo xxxxx
