Guess I really should update here. Graham thought it was time 🙂 He spent 7.5 weeks in hospital and has been home now for nearly 6 weeks. The house is no longer lonely and silent. He has his music playing, or watches funny clips on the web or sometimes watches the TV in the loungeroom by our office. I’m sleeping much better now knowing he is home again.
I’m adjusting to sharing the office fulltime, instead of just the evenings and weekends. We both have to learn to keep our voices down when on the phone so the other can concentrate or also carry on a phone conversation or meeting. It’s been a long time since we’ve both worked in the same area but never actually worked together in the same room/office.
He is still recovering and it will take some time yet, but it is good that he has returned to work 2 hours a day here at home. I take him to some appointments, and others come here to see him. He’s able to do physio in our own gym/games room which is good. The meds still tire him but they’re necessary to help him handle the nerve pain, which we believe will be with him for quite a while yet. The prayers are always welcome as we know first-hand that they do help a great deal.
Thank you to everyone who has supported us during the time and continue to do so. When I was home alone travelling back and forth to hospital many from our church supplied meals, checked on me and visited Graham. We are so grateful for this. And our family have rallied round us – the girls have been great checking on us often. It’s a blessing to have our family, the girls, the sons-in-law and friends and our beautiful grandson who is a real delight.
