We all set off for the hospital this morning , to see Tal and do a shift change-over for Jonathon who stayed the night.
The organisation is pretty slick and we all got special stickers to wear.
Heavily sedated Tal was still in intensive care so Richard drove Jon back to the house to shower and sleep while Gethin and I found the sibling play room.
Tal was on morphine and Valium all wired up ,drowsy and confused.
Late morning they decided to move him up to the twelfth floor to his own room. One of the volunteers tracked Claire down to give her English Tea Bags from home as she had heard Claire say she would love a proper cup of tea.
Gethin was allowed a quick visit before lunch. Then Dr.Park stopped by to see him.
As the day wore on he became more aware and more uncomfortable with all the lines and monitoring.
Gethin discovered a beautiful tranquil roof garden to explore donated by well wishers to the hospital.
Just as we, grandparents were about to take Gethin home for dinner/bedtime.Tal decided he might drink something. His nurse said if he drank some apple juice he could have a treat. Tal’s idea of a treat is chocolate but she did better than that and brought him chocolate ice-cream. When we left he was happily licking it off Mums spoon. Real signs of improvement.
