Off the vent!

Been a bit busy so have not had time to post, but lots of progress… Been off the vent since Monday (five days!) and had naso-gastric tube removed also, so am eating lots of solid food (and milkshakes, yum.)  The trachy is due to be removed on Monday and if all goes to plan I should be also be relocating to the rehab ward.  Been sat upright in the wheelchair for progressively longer periods.. now around eight hours at a time.  We (Ells, Tom and Weeze) are all quite weary here tonight, but will post more soon.  Thanks so much to everyone for all your lovely messages.

  2. Tomernst is right. You are wowing me, too, Tom. Your recovery progress must be way off the charts. I can’t believe you made it from five minutes to 24 hours in such a short time. Keep up the good work as you go into rehab!

    I’ll forward the url to George and Maya. I will be with them tomorrow, and we will be thinking about you getting rid of the trache. Another milestone! Hope it goes well.
