Out Of The Valley [Nov. 27th, 2005|10:46 am]
Tony Grist
I watched a drama-doc about the battle of The Somme last night- highly appropriate.

The first day Ailz was in hospital I kept busy and just about held myself together. Yesterday morning I ran out of little jobs and fell apart.

But she was so much better yesterday afternoon- sitting up out of bed and no longer woozy- and so now I've uncurled myself and emerged from my shell hole.

The gall bladder was gangrenous. The surgeon described it as "the gall bladder of the year". I knew Ailz was ill. I think now, from all we've been told, that she came close to dying. If we'd have resisted going into hospital that first night (and we might have done) the infection would probably have killed her.

Thank you all for your support. Thank you so much. Ailz thanks you too.

Sometime today they'll be moving her off the High Dependency Unit onto a general ward.

I'm finding sleep is a really good way of passing the time.

Cheers.

It was a battle run with stopwatch precision- but human beings aren't machines and a lack of flexibility in the planning led to disaster

Now that they've got that bad stuff out of her, she'll mend fast. She's a strong woman - and sometimes that can be detrimental, strong people resist things like docs and hospitals.

You've had a very tough week, both of you. I thank the powers that be, that she will be alright. And YOU get some rest, after you visit her. You don't need to be ill.

Give Ailz my best.

"She's a strong woman - and sometimes that can be detrimental, strong people resist things like docs and hospitals."

That's exactly right.

I've been sleeping well. I've been bone weary by the end of each day.

A bad gall bladder is a very bad thing indeed.

They told me mine was almost twice the normal size and all spongey. And that they had to take it out in hundreds of little pieces. Eeeeuw.

Anyway, I'm thrilled that she's doing better. Hurrah! May her recouperation be swift.

Will continue to send good thoughts your way, though.

Thanks.

I don't know what Ailz's gb looked like- I think it's probably better not to know. However the surgeon did say that he wished it had been someone else on call that night.

Hooray for recovery! I'm glad Ailz is doing better, and I hope the remainder of her recovery is speedy.

I can't imagine how agonizing this whole thing has been for both of you. It's a good thing that it's coming to a happy ending.
