"Well, i wasnt called overnight so that must be good.i rang twice in my sleepless
state and steve was stable.had to have yet more platelets but no more blood and
his clotting has stabilised so thats a relief.he is " eating up" their sedation
drugs according to the itu reg and they are having to give him large amounts to
keep him asleep.i think he wants to wake up! That is the plan after itu ward
round today.just wanted to take the opportunity to say a huge thank you to
everyone for so much support.it really has helped me and made me feel less alone
with all of this.steves mum joan and brother have beena huge support here for me
and of course my mum and john who are keeping my house going and taking care of
sam and emma whilst keeping me going at the same time.i couldnt have done it
with out everyone to help.x"

Hi all,steve off ventilator and talking.drinking sips water.still slerpy and
very sore but doing well.x
update 11am

Steve's wife's last post for Wed......
"Hi all, better day today,feeling more confident that things going well.steve
quite chatty now but reluctant to use his pain relief through fear of it making
him sick,they have just changed it to try and help and he is being nagged to use
it so he can start moving and coughing etc.bit of a temp but they dont seem
worried.he will stay on itu for good few more days yet. Lovely visit from ellie
today and went home to read bedtime stories to kids which was great.now going to
crash if i can.xxx"

just a quick comment here to clarify for any new members. I (maggie) am receiving messages from steved's wife and I am quoting her words exactly....the messages you are reading are steve's wife's words.

I am trying not to comment as the threads go on because I feel I would then update the thread and you would think it was fresh word from England and steve. I am not clear if the surgery if totally finished?

Steve thinking about you all the time....

sending warm energy as you start to wake up

Once again thank you.

It does sound as if the surgery may be over if they are planning to wake him up.

It is wonderful that his wife has support so close at hand.

Please relay BIG HUGS to them all and let them know that prayers continue for all.

Marie who loves kitties

I am so happy things seem to have gone well with the surgery. Steve is one brave man and it sounds like he has a very strong woman by his side. May God bless them all.

Thank you so much for giving us updates. I know Steve hasn't been off my mind as is the case with the rest of us on the board.

Hey Mags is the operation complete or is there still more to go. So glad that he is talking and able to sip something. Have been thinking about him constantly. Wishing him the best outcome and that his family have some calm now.

okay this really me talking.....haha not steve's wife.

Isn't it wonderful???? what a guy !!!! whewww we said collectively.....breathe.....

just to explain.....I am not actually talking to steve's wife....before they started surgery Steve and his wife set up an account .....I think there are about 30 members who receive messages and can talk. They are family and close friends and co-workers.....because I am not family I am just keeping my head down and copying the messages as Steve asked me to do.

There are so many amazing stories on this forum over the years but this one is really resonating with me.....what a guy!!! indeed...
thank you for all your generous thanks but really it is my pleasure and I feel very humbled that I am able to do some wee thing.

I am a great believer in love and energy and prayer and thoughts and good will ...soooo

keep up the fine work kids.....love to you all

mags...ps Kim I think he is finished....and on with recovery

Steve, you're amazing!!! Kelly, thank you for keeping us updated in the midst of all that you are doing. Although a long road ahead, it sounds like a wonderful beginning to returning home to your family. I don't think there is a forum member who wasn't thinking, praying, worrying for and about you and your family this week.
Be gentle with yourself.
Hugs,
Cathleen Mary
