Operation Day

11 Jun

Hello to all you Neil watchers. Now let’s see if I can remember how to do this! As many of you have picked up from Neil’s last blog we found out about 3 weeks ago that a scan had shown up 2 new lumps in the neck, in the same region as the tumour that was taken out in November. As you can imagine this was a real blow for us all, particularly as Neil was making such good progress and beginning to look at returning to work.

He has had the operation today, not as long as before, but still 6 hours, so long enough. It seems to have gone really well. Although he is in ICU, this is likely to only be for tonight. He is bright and perky, he even phoned home at 6.30 and was able to speak to the children. I have been able to see him tonight and he his much more his usual cheerful self, which is a great relief. His arm is still working and apart from a bit of a wonky smile everything else appears to be working normally. It’s still early days, but the consultant can’t see any reason why his recovery shouldn’t be quite quick. I’m not sure how long he will be in hospital, but hopefully only  a few days.

So, thanks again go to everyone who is supporting us and in particular all those who have been fasting and praying. A victory for God I’d say! I’m a bit shattered and blogging on the train on the way home from the hospital, looking forward to a better nights sleep. Will blog again soon.

Love Sue x

Operation 1

19 Nov

Well I’m at it again (blogging is becoming my new hobby!).

After a very long wait, Neil finally went into theatre around 1pm. The operation took 2 hours and was successful. He is back on the ward, but with a head and neck ache. He has got to remain on bed rest for upto 4 hours after the op. The consultant has just been, they are going to keep him in overnight which although disappointing, (he was looking forward to a day at home eating nice food beore Thurs and then going onto liquid food for the next two weeks!) is the best thing as once again he has been quite sick.

It’s been a long day, but I guess it will be the first of many long days.

Operation Went Well

24 Oct

I hope I’m doing this properly, Neil will be amazed if I do!

Just to let all you Neil watchers know that his operation has gone really well. This feels like the first piece of good news in months! His blood vessels passed all the tests and this should be good news for the main operation. Thank you to everyone who has been praying for us today.

God is good! Sue x
