That's really good to hear, encouraging to hear things like that so soon. Add my regards to everyone elses.

The "camera" up Deb's nose and down her throat is in fact a feeding tube! They've found that after certain sorts of surgery, it helps avoid nausea. It may be withdrawn tomorrow. It does mean she can talk. I have spent much of today's visit rubbing almond oil into her legs - her skin is perilously dry, and she has had another minor outbreak of lobster-itis, which continues to intrigue the medics. Mid-afternoon, a mature lady in cap, gown and mask appeared - the anaesthetist from yesterday, checking on progress. Impressive or what?  We have to wait a week before the results of the biopsy are known, but Deb already feels the headache she'd had for 3 weeks has just gone. Recovery has started, surely!

Good to hear that Termie is going to be better soon

Mrs P had the full monte last year and is now up, about and nagging for England in full voice…

Expect to be hearing that Deb is the same from now on

Good (no, very great) news about the single room too

Little important things mean lots and lots

Up and about soon Deb

Come on girl, out of that bed and lets hear from you!
Well we are trying! I bought a 3G dongle for her netbook - would you believe that in order to use it for more than a couple of weeks, I need to register it (by French law) including a copy of my passport photo and details page? Hitler's lot may have been kicked out in 1944, but you feel the Gestapo are still here!

Feeding tube now withdrawn, as is catheter. Other "shore supplies" will all be gone by tomorrow night.

CA-ers will be aware that Deb speaks pretty good French (much, much better than mine) but even so, there are words she doesn't know. After the op, during which the abdomen is inflated with gas to make surgery easier, the medics were asking her whether she'd been able to do something? What were they asking? Eventually they managed to get the message across - had she been able to fart yet? Futher details will not be provided here - a girl is entitled to some dignity!

So, what is the french for 'fart' then - out of interest, it could become my new favourite word.

I thought I'd find it for you but found this intriguing article instead. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Le_P%C3%A9tomane

Glad Deb seems to be on the mend...

Well, I'd said I wouldn't mention the f-word again, but Deb thought you all deserved to hear the tale.

By 14.30 today she still hadn't "broken wind" but by 14.35, she had. A few mins later a nurse popped in - "I've farted!" said Deb. "Ooh, good!" said the nurse, and opened the door to tell her colleague, who just had to then pass it on to another nurse. "She's farted!" was thus going up and down the corridor on a Sunday afternoon. And you thought it was a subject women never mention except when you've been unpleasant!

I'm so glad Debs is on the mend, and so glad to hear that Frence nurses have the same sense of humour as me.

I think women are only allowed to do this after they had been married.

I understand, that the word "petard" (as in "hoisted by ones own") is derived from the French word for fart, a petard being a small explosive device.  I've hovercrafted a bit, but never gained any serious altitude.

Interesting point on the 3G Dongle - little hope of picking one up just for June
