Less is more…..

48 hours post op and Simon is in the chair (his natural habitat for those that work with him) As you can see whilst still attached to quite a bit less is definitely more! They appear to like taking your blood…….. this is when the central line is a real bonus.

Biggest problem for Simon today is he wants to eat! Anyone that know Simon will know he loves to eat and this is purgatory for him, the nursing staff have not known anyone want to eat so quickly after surgery but we know he is a one off.

Someone was cooking toast and he was off!! This picture just shows the grit and determination he has. Yes we have a way to go, but my god we are going to get there!
