Barbara- so glad to hear you're back home! I know for myself, when I'm in the hospital I never feel as though I am healing until I get back to my own home and bed (and food)(Thai or homecooked)!

I know from friends in the medical field that any time you can get in a study like the one you're in, you're in great shape, because they are looking so closely at how you're doing. And my friend who is doing pulmonary rehab (which sounds maybe like what you will be doing?) is making great progress! She only stopped one time today on our walk! Laughing

Best to you and Bryan both! What a team!

Griffin - that would be Tom Yum Goong - the Thai answer to chicken soup for recuperating. I will make it my goal to walk to my nearest Thai asap so it isn't only Bryan getting the exercise. Today is Wednesday, I will aim to be able to walk that far within 1 week - it's just under 1K.
David - LOL, thank you.
My recovery is going well, helped by a lovely phone call from Madame.

Barbara, no recovery can be considered complete without the news from Chicago. As you might expect, for 9 days of the year, people in Chicago are a happy-go-lucky bunch, slapping each other on the back, buying each other drinks, and enjoying our summer weather before we're forced to acknowledge that there are other places on earth that are more blessed than we are. Ah, if only we could be in Australia. Even in hospitals, those people know what life is all about. Best wishes from here, and please let me know if it would speed your recovery if I drank twice as much for the next several weeks.

During my brief visits to a private hospital in Bangkok when I broke my arm, I noticed a Starbucks and McDonalds on the ground floor of the hospital. Probably for the staff and visitors more than the patients, but as many 'medical tourists' go to Thailand for surgery, the standard of cuisine is probably fairly high in private hospitals compared with the establishment I worked at here in Australia. We called the flavour of the yellow jelly there 'hospital flavoured' 'cos it tasted like nothing.

Dunno about the public hospitals in Thailand though.

There's the 'taste' of hospital food, 'n then there's the texture which is something else again. A dear aunt of mine was a patient at St Vincent's Private Hospital in Sydney. The food was very very very different from my experience at another hospital Wink
