Thanks for the replies.
I didn't manage to get there in time to see him before he went to theatre this morning
, but the nursing staff were great and let me know where to wait. Once he was back on the ward, no one had a problem with me being there
Oh, and for anyone who is interested - he went to hospital ( in an ambulance) after the mower caught a metal tent peg, flicked it up and it went into his calf! It ended up that there was approx 8cm of tent peg inside his leg - the photos and -xrays are very impressive!! (But not for the squeamish!!!!)
They removed it in the ED (with the assistance of a heap of morphine and nitrous!!) but he had to get taken to theatre this morning to have it cleaned out...
DH says that it is feeling much better, but he will be off it for a while.. thank goodness he missed the bones and the other vital parts), but as it's his right leg, he won't be able to drive anywhere... that will be fun!!
He didn't get to come home today
- which means another night of very little sleep for me (can't sleep properly when DH isn't here) - fingers crossed he gets to come home in the morning.. Luckily I have a couple of days of sick leave up my sleeve...
Give it a couple of days and I am sure I will be on the venting board....
