Jane here: Thank you so much everyone for your prayers and support – the procedure did go ahead today but unfortunately they could not position the tube properly and so it has been unsuccessful yet again. Not entirely unexpected but nevertheless a shock.
What is going to happen is that Philip will move to Dr. Gray’s hospital in Elgin early next week, continuing with the intravenous feeding, and with a view to organising being at home from there. He currently has another lung infection (being treated with antibiotics) and we all felt that this was the best move, especially as Elgin is just twenty minutes drive from our home in Forres. He may be up to posting a blog himself this weekend, I don’t know.
What more can I say? Have the implications of this really hit me (or him) yet? I don’t know. What I do know is that I have waves of disbelief that this is happening at all, and he, believe it or not, has cracked two jokes today What an amazing man I have married!
