Tuesday night. I’m listening to an audiobook recording of Pratchett and Baxter’s The Long Earth. I’ve just had the last of the canullas removed from my hand. I came out of surgery about lunchtime yesterday and since then, been spending time between sleeping and suffering with a headache.

The most painful thing so far was having the drains removed, and the only time I used the morphine since I’ve been out. It made my head spin and I didn’t like it. And to be honest, didn’t need it for the most part.

So Louise has visited each day, and I’ve had other visitors too, which helps. The staff have been awesome too… even if I didn’t think so at 2 or 3 in the morning when they wake me to take my blood pressure. Hopefully I’ll be able to get out of bed tomorrow, maybe lunchtime and stretch my legs. Looking forward to that!
