Last night I had a nice evening with my friend Jack, she and I enjoyed a glass of wine and had a nice natter. When I got back to the boat, I took some Nytol again and off to bed I went.
I went to bed at 9.30pm and did not wake until 3.30am yippee, I had a good 6 hours. Because I was wide awake, I got up made myself a cuppa and then went back to bed. having then tossed and turned, I got up at 6am and got on with the mornings chores.
Off to the hospital, walked there is a heavy frost, which was a surprise after all the rain we had had.
I had a good chat with Keith's doctors today, in particular the naval surgeon and the blood doctor. The surgeon who did Keith's op is back from his holiday, which is good and he saw Keith at 6 am. Keith will be having a couple of scans towards the end of the week to see if the fluid build up has diminished or is the same or more. If it is more or has not diminished then they will do another scan to see if his T piece in the bile duct is leaking. Now if it is leaking he may have to have another operation to repair it, but we will cross that bridge when we get there, if we get there. He has to eat more salt because his sodium levels are to low, this is due to the bile he is losing. He also has to increase his calories because he has lost another 5 pounds and is down to 10 stone, 3 pounds. In himself he is looking much better and we had a good walk this afternoon, so it is all down the what the CT scan says now. His blood results are up and down. He did not have any Gentamicin today because the toxic level was to high. The doctors need to speak to the microbiologists to see where they go next with that. At the moment his Liver and Kidneys are coping alright with the heavy antibiotics which is great news. So that is where we are at today.
