The fudge cake, the scones with sour creme and blueberry jam disappeared in no time, only a bit of fudge was left ! This time I was 3rd out of 5 so it was not so bad. It was my last day alone in the house since 9 weeks !
You are not allowed to leave a hospital in the morning, no, they release you only at 2 pm, because then they can add one day more on the invoice !
Punctually at 2 I was there to pick him up.
He was already waiting since 10 am and couldn't get away quick enough ! I got the impression as if a prisoner from a jail was finally released after 20 years !
The cats greeted him especially Arthur who, as you can see immediately got back to his old habits, asking for food ! Rosie just smelled to check if it was really him. We were both very tired, he physically, I more intellectually, because I have got so many papers for different services, the nurse, the kinesitherapy girl, our house doctor, the health insurance etc etc ! I thought I throw everything on the table and look at all the paper stuff next morning when I was fresh again !
The next day the kinesitherapy girl came to continue the exercises with him, and I was surprised how good he can walk even without a cane or crutches. I had been worried that he would go down the rather narrow stairs to our basement, but the girl told me that if he is careful he can. He even is allowed to drive. But so far it's me his driver. Then came the male nurse and helped him to shower and dress.
After having driven him to our house doctor, who has all the informations about the surgery etc, I got another bunch of papers, but everything was OK with him. I needed a break, dropped him off at home for a nap, and joined Nicole and Myriam for lunch in "our " Asiatic restaurant. They have a beautiful garden and as it was warm we could eat outside. I downwinded my nerves a bit, because it is very exhausting paying attention to a 78 year old "toddler" by telling him all the time don't do this don't do that, because he wants to jump around like a flea !
I brought him a take away plate from the restaurant, which he loved.
Now I feel like 100 years old, all the stress is coming out and makes me feel so exhausted.
I need the key !!
