A quick update as it will be coming up to six weeks post op this week ! Dad is doing good and he's hoping to get back behind the wheel and get out and about in his car. I think that will make a huge difference in his recovery and regaining his independence.
On Saturday night we headed up to the velodrome in Manchester to watch Revolution track racing. We'd booked the tickets a few months ago. We had a great night and after explaining to the staff at velodrome that Dad had not long had a operation and wasn't up to walking far they sent me a parking voucher to park on site which was brilliant.
Today he went AWOL ... well I couldn't get hold on him. I spoke to him first thing and then tried at lunch and got no answer. I left a message and then tried a few more times over the next few hours but still no reply. I even tried his mobile which was kind of pointless as he never has it switched on ! However he checked in a couple of hours later. He'd been out for lunch and then a walk around Westport Lake (which is a mile around - I know this as it's one of my walks) and then also popped in and had a walk around the Dingle. That'll probably be the furthest he's walked so that it great progress.
Tomorrow and Thursday he has a couple of appointments at the hospital which will be the first time he has seen anyone since getting discharged.
Will keep you posted on his progress..
