Hi folks. Sorry I haven't posted for a few days. It's all been pretty exhausting and head-messing. Will is now settled on the ward and having more pipes and lines removed each day. He's off the oxygen now when he's at rest, and has started gentle physio. He had a bath today (a rare occurence even at the best of times) and is looking forward to a shave tomorrow. His throat is still sore from the intubation, but he is more comfortable in other respects. They are stopping the epidural tomorrow though, so there may be more actual pain again in the coming days.
Will gets tired very easily and finds it difficult to talk, so he isn't really up to visitors. Our nice friend Anice dropped off a letter for him today, which he really appreciated, and we've had some lovely cards, so if any of you have a few minutes to put a few words to old-fashioned paper and entrust them to Royal Mail, he'd love that. Send anything to our home address: 9 Blossom Street, Cambridge, CB1 2NQ. I'll take them in to him. There's also a ban on flowers and plants on the ward, just in case any of you were feeling inclined in that direction!
Thanks again for all the lovely messages - it really helps to know you're all thinking of us.
