Update on Ron #2

Update on Ron.

Still in High Dependency Unit but making progress, and eating better.

Left lung and diaphragm not quite right but breathing better and oxygen % in blood higher.

Able to exercise out of bed now, 10 steps marking time, so improving all the time.

His birthday, 9th Oct, would be a nice date to aim at for homecoming.

All for now.
Cheerio,
Doreen

Ibbo Cake Ride


Not the best of days in fact the worst ever but I enjoyed myself as usual. My camera was soaked and completely fogged up so not a good picture of Sue Obbotson (John's mum) and me but then I'm always in a fog.


Thanks to all the helpers and marshalls for turning out in such awfull weather including Cristal & co Mick Ayliff and others! My 69 miles seemed more like 169!

Update on Ron

Update on Ron, not quite such excellent news but he's ok and they're not at all worried about him.

As from late Sunday he has had one or two nuisance niggles, including fluid in his left lung which is preventing him breathing deeply, this will probably be drained today.

But at least he's eating small amounts and enjoying it. He's in good spirits and has been for a walk with a nurse, accompanied by his tubes and bags on a stand on wheels of course.

He also might be able to ride the exercise bike.....that'll bump his year's mileage up!

Brian, Michael and his brother Frank have visited with me Sat, Sun and Mon. Frank C is coming with me today.

He won't be out till at least the weekend, possibly into next week. 

Ron has had a lovely letter from Kev & Min (ex-wardens of Crockham Hill YH) which cheered him up no end.

Jim Walsh Redmon 1926 to 2012

 
 

A number of KPRC members attended the funeral of Jim Walsh including Doreen & Ron, Lisa, Ray & me. I did not know Jim but know his brother Ned related to the Starey family. Bob was there with his uncle Joe. Mike Wakely appreciated our attendance and I spoke to Jim's wife who was pleased to see us. It seems that Jim was not only very active in the cycling field but was a school governor and a charity worker of quite some note. His son gave a very interesting insite into Jims life and indeed it made all those that attended very humble to think that one man could have done so much with his life and given so much to others.
