Postscript to waiting...

Well now, that's a bit better! I just phoned, and a warm voice said "He's doing VERRRRY well my dear.." doesn't that trump cagey voice saying "fairly stable"?

Apparently they have now got the medication sorted so that it both controls the pain and allows him to breathe, when I had to leave at 8 last night, the morphine was causing an either/or situation.

Note to self... (from good self..) maybe now you can grab an hour or two of sleep so you don't look like a haggard old bag when you go and visit at 11. (evil twin interrupts...) Or on the other hand, there is always another cup of coffee accompanied by some comfort eating....damn, why didn't I think of getting a tub of ice-cream on my way home!

That's fabulous news!! And that icecream sounded good but the sleep will probably be more satisfying. I think I'd feel the same way as you about being stronger alone.

I've only just caught up with the news. I'm so sorry to hear about Max but glad to hear that he is improving. Wish I could send you a tub of ice-cream :o)
Take care of yourself and give my best to Max.

All seems to be going as it should after this operation.. Max as beat me by one as mine was a triple.. Give Max a few day to come around fron the operation.. apart from the by-pass he would have been given some pretty strong medication and this will need to clear as well. Jane said it was so upsetting seeing me the same day, I was completely out of it with the drugs, a machine was doing my breathing and I had tubes all over. Jane said was plesed to see me , but the sight was not good. I was out and home within 10 days. After the first few days Max will be there holding your hand and thinking about how much you both mean to each othe, the whole thing made my relationship with Jane ten times as strong as before, she was and is my rock... Get your sleep, and rest.. he is in very good hands. Make the most of your rest as you will be exhusted mentally and phsically by what you yourself are going through.
Big smile from Wiggers World to you both.

Sue, sleep will do you far more good than ice cream. It's funny how comforting food can be though isn't it. I hope when you get to visit you will feel better, don't expect much and you won't be shocked.
BTW you won't look like a haggard old bag to Max, more like his beautiful angel..

I feel awful! Here I've been busy with things at home and whining about my art and you've had serious problems! I'm glad to hear that Max is doing better. And you need to take care of yourself as well. So maybe just a small tub of ice cream!!
