Nisan by seacreature


Went in to Cape Town again today to visit Don in hospital. The ward is divided into a number of rooms, each with 2 beds. Nisan has been Don's "roommate" for the past week, but today he was leaving to go to Rehab over the road.
Hope he’s going to be ok. How is Don?

@narayani @ludwigsdiana . Nisan has a long road ahead of him I think.
Thanks for asking. Don is making very slow progress. He had a setback in that his blood pressure dropped dangerously low the other day. He lost a lot of blood during surgery, and is still bleeding a lot into the wound, so they have had to give him a unit of blood in addition to the drips. He is also back on oxygen, and they have had to take away the morphine as I believe that lowers blood pressure, so he is in a lot of pain at the moment. 12 years ago when he had a spinal fusion, he was up and walking down the passage quite confidently within a day or two, but this time it is a week later and it was a half hour effort to get up and shuffle to the toilet just a few meters away. So he is going to have to be discharged to a step down facility at the end of the week as I can't cope with looking after him on my own, 160km away from the hospital if anything goes wrong.

You have captured the emotions well in this shot. Good luck with Dons recovery
