Same place different day. Here at Middy’s Marriott one day seems to roll into the next. But I am pleased to say, each day sees Paul getting a little bit stronger.
It has almost become an afternoon ritual to go out walking – good for Paul and also forces me to get some much needed exercise. Even though Paul has lost 13kg to date, pushing a wheelchair around the local hills for 50 minutes has to be worth at least some brownie points! The cathedral has become his favourite place both inside and outside and the place he is using to get in a bit of walking.
Hopefully now that he is eating some meals again he will regain some of the lost weight and manage to rebuild some of the lost muscle mass. It really doesn’t take long for muscles to waste away.
Big breakthrough today – his afternoon ‘spa treatments’ has now been dropped. This is great because it helps to free up the afternoon a bit. His skin is really looking so much better and his regular Tuesday visit to the ophthalmologist once again gave him the all clear.
He continues to praise the nurses that give him so much kind attention and he is so appreciative of their kindness.
All positives folks 🙂
