Once Upon a Time in the West

Today we were back down the M3 to the riot torn streets of Basingstoke for a meeting with Brendan Moran, Brenda’s Surgeon. By the reaction of those who haven’t seen Brenda since she was really under the weather progress has been good. Brendan was very upbeat about how well Brenda has done saying that in some cases patients might still be in hospital (Brens has been home for four weeks on Wednesday.) A small but painful pointy piece of cartilage in Brenda’s chest is nothing to worry about, which is a relief. He was also pleased to see that she is finally starting to put on some weight (although she is still quite thin). She is still on the pain meds, which he reckons will be needed for another couple of weeks.   Brenda starts out most mornings feeling great with a lot of energy, but she tends to peter out by early evening and experiences more pain then. This is normal and afternoon naps are still very important. All in all it felt like more of a social visit than a medical consultation. Our next meeting is scheduled for June but until then it is full steam ahead. Brenda is keen to get out and increase her walking each day (hopefully back to some gently jogging in another month or so).

Our thanks again for the lovely flowers from a cast of thousands and it was great to hear from Ruth and that scoundrel Roberto.
