getting ready for home

2 weeks in Hospital
2 major Neurological operations -7 hours and then 9 hours
its time to leave on a Sunday

the last operation was 9 hours long and a decision was made to remove 4cm from the RH fornt temporal lobe
its a non functional part of the brain and it was a ht or miss proposition that there maybe was a trigger point for the Epilepsy in that spot. so after much discusssion we decided to remove.

little did we know what we had released..........

its just a pane of glass.....

Extended time in hospital does differant things to differant people.

I am always fascinated by the glass of a hospital window- on one side of it a world is normal with people going about their daily life with absolutely no understanding of what is happening on the other side of that pane of glass......

one day some ballons landed outside our window!

our toughest time

Well the surgery is over and so its back into the ward for 7 days of recovery.

Pain management and halting nausea is the main tactic to look after him-
some of the things happening were  headaches, migranes, plenty of nausea and amongst other things sore jaw- the cut some muscles to get into the LH side of the brain....

So all up- its recover, watch and care whilst in hospital.

Very surreal time for us all and you can clearly see in this image the scale of what they have done to him and also how bloody miserable he is
