Phoned the hospital this morning and they said Gordon slept really well (so did i by the way a whole 8 hours ) and was having a wash and looking good.
They also said they have taken him off emergency care and that i now dont have to go in until ordinary visiting times so thats great news.
I went to the shop with Anthea this morning and Karen was there too and because it was snowing we werent too busy so we caught up and had a good natter.
Ali Iain and Andrea from Ali Crafts popped in as they were passing this way and it was great to see them and were so shocked about Gordon as they hadnt heard. But it was lovely to see them and we had a good natter for an hour or so.
I left the shop around lunch time and went to see Gordon he has to wait in a long queue now for his M R I scan as he is off the critical list so may not get it till tomorrow but we dont mind that we are just greatful for what has happened so far and can wait till next week if we have to.
Gordon was sitting in a chair when we arrived and had walked to the toilet ( which took him half an hour to get to )and washed and shaved himself (which took another hour ) and the nurses all clapped him when he got back to his bed, i am just so proud of him.
He is back to being himself again and has befriended all the other patients relatives too.
Before i left i went and got him some magazines as he wanted to have a read and as i was leaving
he said to me I Think we should have one of those Civil Services this year Rob.
I said ... Oh Gordon that is the most romantic proposal ive ever heard and the answer is YES.
I laughed about it all the way home.
Later Gordon phoned me to tell me he has had his M I R scan and we will know the results tomorrow.
He was in it for 30 minutes and he said it was really frightening as it makes loud banging noises like a world war two film and you are strapped in and cant move.
It has made him feel tired and worn him out so hes asleep now i should imagine.
I have had another lovely surprise as my sister has come up until tomorrow so we are going to have a good natter this evening and she will see the shop tomorrow for the first time and then we will go and see Gordon.
So thats about it for today and thank you all for your kind words and Gordon sends everyone his best wishes and love.
Will let you know tomorrow about what the MIR scan results are.
Love and smiles Rob Gord and Harry xxx
