Eric is improving all the time. On Thursday, he and his catheter parted company, to Eric’s great relief. In the search for the suspected bleed which occurred a week ago, after which Eric experienced considerable loss of blood pressure, a second endoscopy was performed in the late afternoon. Nothing was found (again), but biopsies were taken.
This morning, he passed the ultimate test of walking up and down a staircase. Later, he had his first shower in eleven days. Surgeon Mr M visited and gave permission for Eric to be discharged on Saturday morning. He has been given a follow up appointment with Haematology Outpatients Department on 12th May. Delighted to be going home.
