i only jusat found out as have been all morning without my mobile. he got the hospital to ring his mum and tell her, as he didnt want me to worry and keep dd1 off school (like i would, i send her in as long as she isnt upset andi would've have told her anyway). They thought he may need to go back to ITU afterwards, but they managed to remove it without a genreal anasethic. am going to see him later. my poor man, he is really going through it atm.
it wasnt a red blood cell clot, it was a platlet clot. very unusual. he has a drai nin his leg now, but leg is looking good, they had to hunt to find it.
saw another man with the same VAD as Peter having one of his 1st walks with his 'shopping' trolly. had a chat to his wife who just melted over dd3.
Peter is going to turn into a cup of tomato soup soon.
