I'm pleased to report that my husband is now home from hospital. He was in for almost 2 weeks and had a pretty rough time of it, but it could have been worse. He did not have to have a drain in to get rid of the fluid around his lungs, the strong antibiotics did that job. He has to continue to take those now for 4 weeks and is 'as weak as a kitten' as we say, with no appetite at all. Hopefully now that he's home that will improve. At least he's not stuck in hospital getting no sleep and feeling miserable. All praise to the NHS, I've no idea what we would do without them. Watching some of what the nurses and doctors have to cope with my husband said they deserve sainthoods.
Thanks to everyone who left messages of sympathy and support after my last post, it is *so* much appreciated. I hope to be back within the next few days with an end of the month book post (where the heck did June go?) I haven't read heaps this month but what I have read has been very good.
