Bede was readmitted to hospital on Wednesday night. One of his surgery wounds has become infected which is dangerous because it leads to the shunt which leads to his brain. Although it is not at a serious level yet and they are getting on top of it with IV antibiotics.
So the good news is that as of this afternoon we are finally down in oncology which is much better for Bede and much more relaxed for us.
Along one of the corridors here the wall is lined with paper for people to write positive thoughts or good things that have happened during the day. The above picture is what our doctor wrote. I quite like it.
Chemotherapy was due to start on Friday next week but has been pushed back.
He is also due to have another surgery to install the line the chemo will be administered with and a lumbar puncture.
He has had a small bleed within his tumour but they are not too worried about it at the moment.
Bede retains his gentle peace and soulfulness despite how tired and worn he is this admission. We have had some smiles. He is definitely exhausted and I think working hard at fighting the (albeit mild) infection but his light is undimmed.
WOOOOOOOHOOOOOOO we are now at the heaviest Bede has ever weighed! He is basically obese! Well not quite but working hard at building some reserves to go into this fight with.
