Dan has had his treatment and we are now out the other side.
It went well, despite one or two little set backs, such as the machine breaking down just as Dan was all prepped and ready to go, so he had to wait a further two hours; then a "part" fell off the machine during use, and they had to keep him under longer whilst they repaired it. Such is life.
I am very glad we booked an extra night in London at the small "hospital hotel" just a block away, as he wasn't well enough to go home on Saturday night, and they kept him in until the next morning.
Since being home he has kept me running around so much that I have very little time for chat; and we seem to have a constant stream of visitors or the phone is always going. If anyone would like to know what being a "quietly submissive wife" is like, I am gaining experience by the second. I am rapidly getting to the "Take ten deep breaths before you answer" stage!
All joking aside, Dan is just being Dan, and like all men hates being under par and having to rest and stay put. Thank heavens for mobile phones, downstreaming, and tablets (of the hi tech variety). And newspapers! I've never bought so many.
Dan has had no pain whatsoever from the High Intensity Focused Ultrasound treatment. But the catheter is, and shall remain, a pain both for him and for me. For him because it is at best uncomfortable, and at worst downright painful, as well as being an utter nuisance; and for me because he is constantly moaning about it and says he wishes he knew enough about anatomy to improve the design of the things. Smile ladies!
I'd like to thank everyone once again for all the support and kind emails we have received. If I didn't manage to answer all your comments last time, let me say how much I appreciated them and all the good wishes and prayers you sent us.
I do plan to get back to normal blogging, but I am a bit inundated at the moment, and I think it could be next week before I am able to draw breath in the normal way.
So bye for now, and see you later Alligators!
