So, how am I?

fire shorts

I could model these shorts. Hospitals are always hot. This ward is kept hotter than most.  I am in a side room with a newly sealed window and extra hot radiator. There is logic to all this. The surgery I have had has a much better chance of success if the newly transplanted tissues are kept warm. The heat encourages capillary dilation and diffusion of the area.  Besides the heat, I am wrapped up with great wadges of gauze. This is all very well but I am melting!  My temperature shot up this morning which I hope is down to all the environmental stuff. I feel ok.

I am doing pretty well. My catheter is out now, as is one of my drains. Both ivs are down and I’m pottering about. All a bit knackering but definitely heading in the right direction.
