A Message From The Man Himself
(dictated to Jenna)
Where to start! ....
Firstly, I'd like to say a HUGE thank you for all the kind words, messages, visits, cards, emails etc etc it really does mean a great deal and gives the old spirits a massive boost. Any prayers and positive thoughts / voodoo medicine are greatly appreciated too, I'll take anything really!!!
So, as for where I'm up to, the operation was a success (as far as I'm aware not actually met the surgeon! ) and I've moved from intensive case to high dependency and then to the ward, all steps in the right direction (well kind of steps anyway ;-) )
Started some light physio in the past few days and itching to do more... but mostly it's a big case of fingers crossed, touching wood and waiting really, trying to remain as positive as possible!.... Also hoping to get transferred to Southport asap to save everyone the 5 hour round trip to Middlesbrough!
Jenna and my parents have been amazing so an extra special thanks to them. and also a big thank you to Betty for setting up the blog, who has done a great job.
Trying to see the silver lining.... the Euros have started, I'm getting to lie in bed plenty, getting waited on hand and foot and the hospital food ain't too bad surprisingly!
Oh and if anyone is interested in buying a mountain bike give me a shout!!
Again thank you all so much, keep praying.
love Mark. x
