Hooray, Hooray, Hooray.

Hooray, Hooray, Hooray. I have finally found someone who will tell what is going on and you can only imagine how happy that makes me. He is a Naval surgeon on secondment from the Navy for 6 months. He was with the surgeon this morning when they visited Keith and so was happy to talk me through what was going to be done and why and he has said I can chat to him anytime. Keith has two pools of fluid in the stomach cavity about 10 to 15 cm's in size, which need draining, they could be where they washed him out and the fluid was left over and pooled, or it could be bile from a leak or infection, they will not know until they put a drain in on Wednesday. I hear you say why Wednesday?

They cannot do it until then because they need to book the CT scanner and they need to make sure the right surgeon is on hand to do the job. Keith is in no danger because he is still on the antibiotics, so we have to wait now. I was so pleased to see Keith looking so much happier today and he was warmer than yesterday. He had feet and hands like blocks of ice yesterday. Keith had a better day in himself today, he was smiley and not so down. They have allowed him to eat something today, so for lunch he had some leek and potato soup and he really did enjoy it. Better still it stayed put. Progress was made today, even if it was only in finding out what is going on xxxxxxxx


  1. It's about time someone solved the mystery. So glad that the way ahead is now more positive and you can finally start to relax a bit. Keith has certainly been through the mill but maybe now there is a light at the end of the tunnel and coming home is not an impossible dream after all. Send Keith all our love and best wishes and we give you a huge amount of hugs. Xxxxx

  2. Well three cheers for the Navy, funny old world isn't it when one boater comes alongside to assist another boater??
    We can see you smiling just a little, and rightly so :)

    Hi, Jo. Playig catch up on boat blogs, as I have only just got a land line connection to work with. Consequently have only just found out about Keith. Not good news, but looking better. God luck to the 2 of you, say hi for us, Mike and Phill, NB Garnet, currently domiciled in East Sussex.

  4. Well that is great news. We were starting to think Keith was suffering from "caring incompetence" with the mix-up over the medication and the incorrectly inserted catheter.
