Hubby can now walk 6m using the zimmer frame! Which means that he can get to the toilet on his own - progress!

Apparently he'll be in this hospital for at least the rest of the week and then hopefully transferred to Armadale Hospital before being discharged at the end of next week or so.

He's a bit happier now that he has some mobility, but he's really "over" the whole hospital experience.

We were hoping that he would be out in time for Miss 6's birthday party (this coming Saturday), but unfortunately that doesn't look likely :(

And here I thought that as soon as they were well enough to complain about the food, they were almost ready to go!

*hugs* Great to here he can get his dignity back - the bladder is a powerful motivator!

Hope it's all smooth and fast from here!

Prayer said. Tell Hubby this is the perfect time to trot out the old "Hey, Doc, Will I be able to dance after this operation?" jokes. Not often you get the chance!

Happy early birthday to Miss 6, and feel better SOON, Hubby!

At least he's getting some movement and out of bed. I'm in chat right now and everyone wishes you and the family the best!

Thanks everyone ... he can now walk for about 10mins!!!!

Suldog the "Will I be able to play golf when I get out of hospital?" has been done :)

Jim Please pass my thanks and greetings onto the mob. Not sure when I'll get back into GBO to chat, but I am sure missing everyone! (And the sanity break it provided).
