Medieval torturers worked out that if you imprisoned a person in a 4 feet square cell it was especially cruel as the prisoner could neither stand up nor lie down. That’s a bit like how I feel now. Sitting is very uncomfortable as is laying down. The only really comfortable position is standing up. Sleeping is balance between the pain and fatigue.
I can feel the healing going on and there is progress all the time. Bowel movements were very restricted until early this morning when an hour mostly spent on the ‘throne’ seems to show that the blockage has freed up – another sign of swelling going down.
Sitting is a bit of an issue as there is an 11 hour flight back to be ready for in only 12 days time. At the moment I would have difficulty sitting down for take off or landing!
It is Saturday morning here and I next have a medical appointmenton Monday at 9.30 with Dr Kunaporn. I then just have ti grin and bear it and get ready for my flight home. I can’t say that either the bars and clubs of Patong, the old town of Phuket, or the other Thai attractions hold much attraction for me. I’d raher be home. So I’ll just grin, carry on reading my Kindle, and wait for Thursday week.
I’ll keep you posted.Robin Moira White
