It was pouring with rain when I finally got up this morning and at 11am its still hissing down.
I did not sleep too well last night, well after 2am before I went off and awake by 7am.
Rang the hospital, they let me speak to DB, told me he had not slept and they had given him morphine for the pain. I can see big problems ahead, he does not deal well with slight pain so this is going to be mammoth...........I am waiting to hear what the Drs said, DB is going to ring me. I am not trailing in till I hear from him.
Bed changed laundry on the clothes airer in the dining room, Monday clean done. Cannot really settle to anything until I hear if DB is staying in or coming out. He says both feet are swollen one worse than the other. I have visions of wheel chairs etc........
Call late this afternoon to say that DB is being discharged. He is on crutches and can get up and down stairs ok, they are bringing him home by ambulance....wonders will never cease, I thought I would have to go and struggle with him. They are sending him home with pain killers as he is still getting quite a bit of pain from his foot and his left one is still quite swollen. No idea when he will land he has to wait for an ambulance to collect him.
I am shattered, tried to have a nap this afternoon but did not manage it, so tired, but I guess I am going to be a lot tireder before the week is out. He did not sleep so well last night, he may well decide to go straight to bed when he gets home, so plenty of running up and down stairs for me.
Will have to see what DB wants for his supper. I have his last nights supper on a plate in the fridge, I guess I may end up eating it.
OH arrived home at 7pm after having to wait 3 hours for an ambulance car. He had to sit in the discharge lounge waiting for the driver to call for him. He said that a chap he had been sitting with had waited 6 hours and he was still there when he left.
He went up the stairs on his bum, is now in bed asleep exhausted, did not even drink the tea I made for him and has had nothing to eat since lunchtime. I will see if he wakes later and make him some toast.
I have a feeling I am in for a few bad nights, think I may well sleep in the guest room tonight for what sleep I am going to get.
I re-heated DB's last nights supper and ate it, I was starving. I have had the heating on to warm the house up, switched it off now.
