Wendells happy update!!

Hallo friends,A Big THANYOU,for all your lovely wishes & prayers,It was so heartwarming to hear from you,sorry I couldent reply individually,but have been in a fog of tiredness!

Hopefully now, I may get a bit more time for myself,& be able to join in once more.

Harry got his b/p & heart rate under control,at last,& is doing so much better. They tell me,if this continues,he will be sent to rehab,sometime this week, for a few weeks,as he is still on the surgical ward at present, even though he was actually operated on, for his new hip,about 2 weeks ago.So we are both feeling a lot happier! Some confusion is still there, they told me they are not sure if its permenant or not,at this stage,time will tell! The wound on his hip, has healed realy well,& he is cooperative with the physio,& doing well with it,walking with them,with the walker.When he gets to rehab, it will be more full on,I think he will do well,with that side of things.

I have been quite pleased with myself,amazing what one can do, when the chips are down!!

I have had so much driving& walking,more importantly,a long way from carpark to hospital,& another long walk,when in the hosptal doors!Became a bit breathless at times, but just stopped, & did the pursed breathing & continued on,thank goodness no chest infections etc.It was noted that I had lost weight,& to my surprise found I had dropped 10 kilos,nothing like a bit of worry to lose weight, but dont recommend it though,not this way!

Was sad to see we lost some good people,hopefully all will be resolved,life is to short for bickering!

Anyway,sorry to have cracked on for so long! Thanks again,

Love you all

This is great news Wendells, sounds like Harry is doing well now so make sure you look after yourself, that's a big weight loss but not surprising after all you have been through.

Your so right about the bickering, I try to keep out of it all,I struggle to see why people waste so much time and energy on such trivial things.

That is good news. I have a fridge magnet that says "A woman is like a tea bag you never know how strong it is until it's put into hot water."


Hi Wendells so pleased to here Harry is on the mend. I am assuming he will be staying in to complete his rehab, will this give you time to relax a little before he comes home, I do hope so. You must look after yourself as well.

Looking at better times :-)
