We have finally arrived home. Terry travelled with Dr David Cooper from International SOS and he was terrific. It is a lousy trip in any circumstance let alone when you are unwell. He is very tired but pleased to be back in Oz. It will be a while before he is up to visitors so please be patient.
To everyone who supported us through our time in the UK we want to say thank you. There are too many people to name but you know who you are and we are truly grateful.
I will continue to post blogs a little longer until such time as Terry feels up to it.

Coming home

Terry has been cleared to fly home after Monday. We now await International SOS and hope to be back in a week or two. We are not looking forward to the trip but are very keen to be back home.
Terry continues to do a little walking and twice a week has rehab.
We cannot express how grateful we are to the staff of Harefield but will be very happy to stop our visits there!!!
Hopefully there will only be one more blog from England and then back to an Aussie one.

Me again!

Terry has been out of hospital for 10 days. He is not up to writing blogs yet but is managing reasonably well. We visit the consultant again this week on Wednesday and hopefully will have more info re our return.
Every day is a challenge. He is able to walk a little and is eating quite well now. He is so skinny he needs to eat up and regain some strength. Seems funny that I eat more than him given his long term love affair with food!!!
Our little cottage is working out well and we have found a lovely driver for our trips to Harefield 3 days a week. 2 days are for rehab and 1 for an appointment. His daily drug taking is massive and this too can knock him about a bit.
All in all he is doing OK and we hope to be home sooner rather than later.

Terry has been discharged from hospital today. We have moved into our little cottage and are settling in. He has another appointment next week and hopefully we will be home toward the end of June.
The next blog you get will see a return of his creative writing, so this is hopefully my last effort.
