Seems that fried breakfast is the most appropriate gauge of my recovery on the first week I found out that full cooked breakfast was serviced on Sunday so the first week when I was in ITU I had my first taste and although I managed a bit I couldn't mange all the meal the next week it was a bit easier and I ate nearly all the meal but it was cold before I finished it.Last week I managed the whole meal and most was hot this Sunday I ate all the meal hot and even started on some toast to follow.I seemed to be on the way to a full recovery shame they don't serve any black pudding.
In the real word I have had a few ups and downs leading to a few investigations to find out why my Oxygen saturations were low
I had a bronchoscopy Ultrasound of my heart and Diaphragm. capacity test and forced volume test and CT scan and then it was decided that I had a need for a chest drain in the pleura of my right lung that seemed to do the job and the sats are now improving
The other thing I have been considering How do I Express my extreme gratefulness to the unknown people out in the world that gave me this new chance that I have been offered in the world? how can I tell the relatives of the donor how much I appreciate what they have done for me and my family?
It must have been such a hard time for them losing a loved one and still able to see the benefit that the organs available would make in someone else's life I will do my best to look after the donation they have made to me and keep that piece of them alive inside me I have no words at the moment but I hope in the future I will be able to explain though a note if that is possible to let them know how much I respect their decision.
Finally I had a shave today and so I thought that I would post a another picture on line so you could judge If you thought that I have improved as all the nurses say I have, and you can see my ugly mug again!
