Well that strangely kind of brings me to a point nobody ever mentions: The strain something like this puts on a relationship is bloody HUGE. Both parties go through completely polar opposite traumatising events. One deals with a near death experience, the physical truama and re-evaluation what/who really matters, the other deals with almost losing a partner and testing their support structures to the extreme.

It can be hard to be sympathetic to what the other is going through and at the same time not resent them for being more sympathetic to your own plight, which ever side you are sitting on. I dare say a relationship that survives something like this is going to go full distance.

Anyway, I took myself off morphine a few days ago and Iíve been ever so slightly emotional since. Does it show?

Well done for putting this out here.

We forget , cocooned in the hospital,   that our loved ones are having to cope out there in the real world without us.
Another big adjustment is when you get home again after several months away .

Good luck to you.

Very valid post regarding the family stress, it places huge strain on a marriage especially if young kids are involved because the spouse now has to cover both rolls and still find the time to travel to he hospital at night, with the kids because finding babysitters every night is impossible. Not a lekka situation and it put me on a guilt trip a few times but that's what marriage is all about, it's a give and take. Next time it might be your turn to do the running about and playing doctor. It's a motivation to get better and back home because that does help with logistics although you'll miss the nurses at first.

Ai - I know all about projects and the impact something like this can have on it. Wishing you all the best. Unpaid leave - are you a contractor?

Oh and I felt the sun for the first time in 15 days. Managed to walk all the way to the hospital entrance and just enjoyed being outside for a couple of minutes

Modern medicine incredible if you think I had a broken hip and femur two weeks ago

Ek het dit voorheen al vir jou gesÍ maar gaan dit weer doen.....ek is moerse impressed dat jy geen infeksie gekry het nie....veral nie in so oop wond nie.

Na my groot ongeluk paar jaar terug het ek meer tyd spandeer om infeksie te baklei as actual rehabilitiasie. Totaal van 3 maande in die hospitaal gewees waarvan 2 maande (meestal in isolation) vir die virus was wat ek in die hospitaal gekry het nogal: 

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus
Abbreviated as MRSA, this staph bacteria has evolved over time to become immune to many of the most popular antibacterial drugs. Indeed, MRSA can often not be treated with either penicillin or amoxicillin, with most patients requiring higher doses of more nontraditional antibiotics in order to defeat the condition. It often manifests itself in the form of a skin infection in most patients, and should be treated by a medical professional as soon as any signs or symptoms have been noticed by the patient. Staph bacteria does represent one of the most aggressive bacterial threats to the human body.

Hectic. I never fully realised it was that long.

I am also going into isolation because of some anti biotic resistance thing but thatís to keep it spreading. Theyíve alteady changed my antibiotics to cover for it

Hospital Acquired Infections (HAI's) is 'n moerse issue vir die hospitale. Jy kan net soveel doen in 'n plek wat wemel van bakteriee, virusse etc. En al doen jou staf alles itv infection prevention (hande was is nr 1), versprei die besoekers dit vir jou rond. Dan kry jy nog 'n klompie pasiente uit sentraal Afrika wat met goggas sit wat ons nog nooit eers gesien het nie.

Hulle se dit voel soos 'n losing battle partykeer.

Is that a cloth or some other absorbent material they stuffed in there? Or your muscles?

Muscles. The surface texture is from the guaze that was removed before the photo

Where are they going to take skin from for that exit wound? Next level scarification - maybe they can turn it into a Wild Dog logo  :imaposer:
