They were pleased with Doug - the worry was the bowel - and we were told that as long as there were no Traumas he would be operated on as an Emergency today. I left at about 11.30 a.m.
At 12.30 p.m. I got a call from Doug's daughter to say he had just been wheeled down to theatre and his grand daughter estimated he would not be back on the ward for about three hours. I was surprised to get a call at about 3 p.m. from Doug to say he was back in the ward. He sounded good but a bit groggy.
I will get another update in a little while when his daughter goes back to visit him as she lives near the hospital.
So, I am going out to water both front and back gardens. I was going to do it this morning but we must have had a heavy dew and it did not seem too bad.
