Now I'm back home I can upload photos,
so below you can see the view I had out of the ward window
This the Parish Church of St. Luke, Chelsea where Charles Dickens was married.
View of the park to the side of the church, every day this was packed with people sunbathing. You can see the cafe just inside the church on the left. This served fresh coffee, sandwiches, panini's, and cakes etc.
Its been 5 days since my surgery and the healing process is going well. My chest feels a little tender and tight, but I have very little pain, but this is due to the increased morphine dosage that I'm taking. In a couple of days I will start to reduce all the medication that I'm on tapering off to zero in a few weeks. That will be really good as last night, with the increased morphine, I slept for a straight 12 hours, and that really isn't like me at all.
For those of you who are interested this is wound across my back. It was taken in a mirror so it's reversed
The wound has dissolvable stitches, so the only stitches to come out are under the white dressing which is where the drains went in to the lung.
