Monday 8th Feb-MOAS +6

When Tracey and Mum came to see me this morning I apparently gave them my first smile since the op. I know this meant a lot to them as it showed that I was feeling better. I had slept through the night and was feeling pretty good. Mr Cecil came to see me and told me that I was doing really well and that they hoped to move me later today and that they were just waiting for a bed on the ward to become available.
My temperature had returned to normal and as I was doing so well my epidural and NG tubes were both removed. At last some real progress. The NG tube had become quite uncomfortable.
Dad came to see me today too which was nice as I hadn't seen him in a few days. Tracey came back in the afternoon but I was pretty sleepy so she didn't stay long. That afternoon the cannula's were also removed from my wrists. Slowly I was becoming free from all the attachments!
Then things happened really quickly. Suddenly there was a hum drum of staff and porters and I was being moved back to the specialist ward C2. I was swapped from one bed to another and then all the wires and attachments untangled and the machines they were attached to moved to the new bed. Then we were off....back to the ward.
By 16:05 I was in my new room and settled. I was in the high dependency twin room sharing with another chap.
All this excitement had tired me out and I spent much of the evening dozing. Tracey and mum left me to it around 18:45 as I was so tired.
