Eric is making slow but sure progress. All tubes out on the 20th, including the epidural. His blood pressure is on the low side and he’s feeling very weak and exhausted. But the pain is less and he’s managing on just Ibuprofen and paracetamol. It mainly hurts when he coughs, which he’s encouraged to do a lot, to help clear his chest. His surgeon, Mr M. visited today. He repeated his opinion that Eric has lymphoma and says he saw no evidence that it had spread, which is good news. We think biopsy results may come next week. Eric is to be moved from the high dependency unit to the main Victoria & Albert ward on Sunday, and possibly home on Monday or Tuesday.
