Jenny here... Adam has had the op and is sleeping at the moment. I saw the doctor for a few minutes afterwards and he said everything is fine. Adam's chest looks quite bruised at first glance so he might be bit sore for the next few days.
A couple of minutes after they brought him back to the room his legs started moving a lot, as though he was trying to scratch. I asked him if they were itchy and he said that it wasn't him moving them... the anaesthetist said this involuntary movement is a common thing after surgery and asked Richard and I to leave the room while they sorted him out.
This they duly did and after a while he was left to sleep with me on patient watch. He sat up once, looking a bit startled, checked his legs were still attached(I guess they are a bit numb from the relaxant they gave him) and when I reassured him they were, he went back to sleep.
Will write more when he's awake. Thanks for all the emails and messages... it makes the wobbly moments much less wobbly.
