"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, 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"
