Day 13

Today is Cam’s 13th day in hospital. Overall, we both feel that it has passed quite quickly. He is nolonger neutropenic. This means that we are now allowed off the ward and are nolonger at high risk of infection. So we exercised our new found freedom with a visit to the hospital cafe. We are just waiting for the results of a head CAT scan that he had today because he’s been having intense headaches. Depending on the results, he should be allowed home tomorrow. Cam has been moved from a single room to a shared room- a four bed room with 2 bathrooms and garden views which at the moment he has all to himself- luxury. We found out today that the ‘legionnaires’ results were only preliminary results and that the final report actually showed no legionellla- good news! Either way, Cam’s pneumonia has responded to treatment and has effectively been treated. When Cam asked his doctor how sick he had actually been and his reply was ‘very sick’. We are very thankful to be through this part of treatment and are looking forward to getting home.

I want to tell you something Cam.
When the wife of the cousin (Peter) of my husband (Ian) was very sick last year, Peter said to Ian ‘If you every think of sending me a message, just do.’ Ian has learned to be more open in expressing his feelings and concerns, rather than not showing emotions. (Think 64 year old, male, conservative).
I have hesitated responding in this medium. (Think middle aged female, v conservative) But I do want to get in touch with you to say that I am thinking of you every day. I am inspired by your journey and your way of sharing with others what you are going through. I know that no one can ever experience it as you are experiencing it.
I just want to tell you that I am willing your wellbeing, and that of you very loving family.
