It's fairly safe to log on today - no tissues required. Rory's progress is continuing well as you can see. He's a long way from full Rory throttle yet but making very brave efforts. We've started physio to get him back on his feet, his muscles are all quite tight after his 10 day hibernation. His system is still in a heap from the surgery and the new barrage of anti rejection meds. I've changed a lifetime's worth of dirty nappies of all shades and sizes in the last few days. Tomorrow's trial cure is the consultant's own personal favourite for this type of situation.....banana milkshake! So my homework for the morning is to whiz up banana and natural yogurt! This will all go down his tube as he is still resisting anything by mouth! As you may have guessed we have pretty much thrown the kitchen sink at this problem so it's back to the old reliables. I'll be submitting a paper on it to The Lancet if this one works! All other non pharmacological suggestions greatly appreciated by the way.
Niall's recovering well, busy receiving guests bearing liquid tokens of their esteem for his brave act of generosity. Like the true selfless being that he is, he is doing so without so much as a whimper of complaint.
