Marion made me a lovely lunch, and, gave me a big bag of her handmade cards to help raise funds for the Charity, PINNT, that Martin and I belong to.
I was very shocked when I saw Martin this afternoon. Where he had had the tension sutures between the bottom of the sternum and his bellybutton the skin was very inflamed. I wonder why they had not been removed before, knowing how prone he is to infection.
I stayed in the room, for the first time, whilst his nurse and physio rolled him. This is to help dislodge the secretions that have built up in his lungs. Then they are suctioned off with a catheter that is passed down his intubation piece. That was when I saw the awful raw patches on his back, bottom, undercarriage and heels.
Martin did not have a cystoscopy after all but another broncoscopy. His windpipe is swollen so a biopsy was taken.
When I pulled up onto the drive tonight I drove straight through the closed garage door. I think my brain just went to sleep. What a wally!!
