Zoe in recovery mode Part 1

Tiny steps forward. Still not great in the morning but we took her out in the afternoon to the swings and the lucky girl also had an action packed visit to the supermarket. Talk about drama and excitement  – Her dumb ass father even lost the parking ticket.

Really has been a day of nothing but waiting around to see small signs of improvement. The whole situation is made worse by the fact that both mother and daughter are slowly losing their marbles on the hospital ward. A strange acceptance of the pecking order was the first sign …. I went in and started (in a pathetic/lame fatherly way ) to try and make Zoe laugh …. wife’s response was “Make sure matron doesn’t hear you”.

Hoping to get her home tomorrow after her dose of IV antibiotics and then Monday is her last day of medical treatment. Father is well dosed up every evening as a coping mechanism – as I am sure someone, somewhere will understand.

She is getting better – it was just a bad case of pneumonia.
