I'm reposting what I put on Pop's blog this morning on his behalf.
G'day, Marcus here again with a quick update on Pop.
He is going extremely well, recovering much quicker than I expected and making significant progress every day.
disconnected from all the tubes and lines and drugs and drips now and
apart from it being a struggle to stand up is moving around freely. He
went for two walks yesterday and climbed two sets of stairs each time.
had made such good progress that the Dr said he might even come home
today but I got a call from Dad this morning that there's been a minor
setback with his wound opening up a bit so he'll be staying in hospital
another day or two I suspect.
He is in very good spirits and has
had none of the difficult and unpleasant after-effects of surgery that
he experienced last time.
He must be getting better because he has
started cracking jokes at my expense.and playing tricks on me!!!!!! But
don't worry, I have his credit card!!!
My wife Carolyn
is flying up from Victoria tomorrow for a five day break away from the
cold and the stresses of home. Needless to say I am really looking
forward to seeing her.
Can't close before saying, "Well
Done to the SOCCEROOS who beat Iraq last night in Sydney and are on
their way to Brazil for the 2014 World Cup. Go Aussies!"
I was watching the game while riding an exercise bike at the gym last night
and let out a very loud yell when we scored the winner with less than
10 minutes to go!! Just as well there was only one other bloke there
with me and he was just as happy about it
