Well what should I say...! I survived and it's been hard going. I'm up and about with most tubes/wires removed. Getting enough sleep has been impossible due to being in a busy (mixed) ward with bleepers going off for many reasons day and night. The food is dreadful (patients aren't eating) luckily there's an M & S in the hospital so that's helped. Some of the staff have been outstanding, others not. I think I already live a healthy life but I'm making an extra special attempt to when I get home as I never intend to do this again. I'm looking forward to getting home.
