India, Dianne and I arrived this morning to find Brenda’s room empty. Her slippers were by the side of her bed and I found myself wondering ‘What’s wrong with this picture?’ Eventually, Brenda wandered in looking composed having given her new silver shoes a test drive whilst doing her exercises.
No Teddy today as he was rehearsing for a play but, Brendan Moran (surgeon) joined us for his daily check on the patient. Today’s conclusion, that Brenda’s central line be removed and that she aim for a mid-week return home.
Obviously, this amazing news is subject to all those things needing to be ticked, being ticked. Brenda is still desperate for a decent night’s sleep and the emotional toll of the extraordinary procedure on her cannot be underestimated. Therefore, the sooner we can get her home ‘safely’ the better.
At home we received a care package from Adele (thank you). A delicious roasted tomato soup and trimmings making a welcome change to sandwiches on the hoof.
