It's late as we write so this is a quick update.
Patrick was discharged and sent home today which is a bit of a shock. It's less than a week since the amputation and he is still in so much pain! Dean's main concern now that he's home is the level of care Patrick will receive and who is going to dress his wound each day. Patrick is staying with his daughter Mabel for a while and she has a drink problem and is not wholly reliable. Please pray about this, Patrick really needs tiptop care.
