So Simon is fine, having not only survived but even enjoyed the school ski trip, thanks to much encouragement from Mr Coppins, with whom Simon spent most of the time ski-ing. He enjoyed Friday night and so far as I can tell has spent most of the weekend in his pyjamas! In the meantime, the invincible man yesterday had a walk with the physio, including stairs, showered himself (with a tiny bit of help from me) and has been allowed home today. My grand plan to have some time to do go to appointments for myself whilst he was recuperating in hospital have been thwarted! So worth it not to see him grey with pain whilst walking! I would appreciate suggestions (only constructive and not mentioning handcuffs!) as to how to manage keeping Michael from doing too much!
