I've just had a chat to the lovely N who's been updating me on Shoshi's Day.
Poor N has been in the wars himself tonight after tripping while crossing the road this evening!
He's got a big bump in his head but says he's ok.
Poor man not one thing but another happening this week!
Shoshi is ok and sends her love to everyone.
She's had a varied day.
This morning was good. The Stoma nurse arrived in the morning while N was there and helped change the stoma bag for the first time. The Stoma behaved beautifully and Shoshi was totally unphased by the experience so that's a great step.
This afternoon N's Brother and his wife went to visit. N took in Shoshi's wheelchair for her to sit in and that was a lot more comfortable than the attempt yesterday in the too tall chair.
Later today wasn't so good as Shoshi's syringe driver got blocked so N thinks she had about 2 hrs without adequate pain killers. A newly qualified Dr came and tried to give pain killers by syringe in her hand but completely failed and ended up stabbing her loads of times until she was in tears (not saying anything negative about newly qualified doctors - just this one for this task). A nurse came along about half an hour later and fixed the syringe driver and Shoshi was comfortable again when N left her this evening
Apart from that hiccough everything seems to be going well.
I let you know when I hear more. I've got all of your comments printed out to send into her tomorrow. I know they'll make her smile.
