First Birthday

It was Flynn's birthday yesterday, one whole year old and full of smiles and cheek.   We met up with the family this afternoon when my son Simon and his wife Julie held a Father's Day BBQ so I had an opportunity to take some photos of his lordship.

Flynn decided the stones tasted much better than the sausages.  He is beginning to talk to everyone and everything, lots of babble but a very distinct "want down".

Keith continues to progress well though he remains quite tired a lot of the time and when he's tired he has lapses of contentration.  He knows when he's tired though and rests but is finding it very frustrating that he doesn't have the energy to do what he took for granted before the stroke.   He has no recollection of the stroke at all and finds it dfficult sometimes to understand why he feels like he does.  At the moment they are trying to find the level of Warfarin to treat him, I think he's enjoying the attention of the nurse.

As for me, well everythin went fine, the op itself took almost twice as long as expected, mainly due to tryingto get all the pieces of the old implant from between my ribs.  I'm quite pleased with he result even if my consultat did leave the hospital that night for another post.  I'm still a bit sore and have quite colourful sticky out bits.  I have a check up tomorrow and don't anticipate any problems.

Last two photos, this beautiful basket of flowers is from Julie's parents and one last one of the birthday boy.
