I fetched OH from hospital this morning. What an effort to get him dressed and into a wheelchair. Our son came along to help and without his assistance I don’t know how we would have managed. OH has these really huge “moonboots” that he has to wear if he puts weight on his feet but they are very difficult to balance on. With the help of crutches and an office chair on wheels we managed to get him to his “ward” and settled in bed. His feet have to be raised up above the level of his heart for the next two weeks.
The dogs went absolutely mad to see him so ecstatic were they. Our son has loaned him an iPad and set him up with all the TV controls for DSTV and recorded programmes. He has books to read, Olympics to watch and I doubt he will be bored but I am sure he will become restless as the days move on.
He had a light lunch and some coffee and has settled down for a nap. I am just waiting for the walkie-talkie to summon me back on duty.
Another gold medal for SA today in Mens Fours – well done boys!
