A more relaxed day today, Mike and Eckhard laid on breakfast, pancakes and home made jam, and more coffee than I’ve drunk in a while. I think I might have gibbered a bit! No change there.
Went to Kings at 2. Phil was his usual emotional self, but not as tearful as yesterday. Maybe getting used to being in hospital. Nurses said he was walking around on his own during the night which sounded promising. They also said he was asking about Laura a lot, the nurses think this is terribly cute =) The nurses are all pretty excellent really, there’s a Philipino nurse who is very kind and keeps a good eye on him.
A couple of physios came round to see how his walking was, and we were very surprised, and pleasantly so, to see him walking with some degree of assuredness. He was as as good as he’s been recently. That’s excellent news. He also seemed a bit more with it as far as getting him to do things.
He is still very hard to understand but seems to have endless things to talk about, the majority of which is pretty incomprehensible, but the logic is still there. He’s basically complaining about being stuck there. He also was a bit bitter about never going to Ilam again, so I promised to do our best to get him there when the weather improves.
So all in all a bit more upbeat than yesterday when we were all feeling a bit disheartened.
Toujours gai mon brave!
