"Well, there is only one piece of advice I can give you," said the wisest of wise men. "The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon."

And now what?

Latest decision is that the damage done to Keith's skin by the broken bones means that it has to be given a little more time to heal before he goes back to theatre, which means that they won't do anything further until Friday or, more likely, Monday.
Meanwhile the morphine drip was taken away this morning, with promises that the 'Pain Management Team' would put alternative pain relief in place. At eight this morning, his pain was getting worse and he asked to be given something to help. At three this afternoon, they got their act together and got him written up for something but when I visited this evening, the pain was still bad and he was hoping that he wasn't going to be in for a bad night.
If he is, I think the night staff might be hearing about it!
