I went to see Dave Wyatt in Hospital yesterday (8/5/09). It was 12 days since I saw him last – what a difference these 12 days have made! Although still in the Burns Unit, he is no longer in an isolated ward with 2 dedicated carers and under sedation. Instead, he is a small ward of 6 beds (although he was the only patient there at this time) and now without the need of constant bedside monitoring. I am delighted to say that he was propped up in bed, awake, alert and conversant. Yes it was much more like the Dave Wyatt we know and love (or something like that). This was also the first day since being in hospital (about 4 weeks) that he has been able to eat food by himself using cutlery. Dave and I talked for about 40 minutes and during all this time he showed no sign of tiredness. He was crystal clear in his thinking (I don’t think he was before the fire) and talked about what had happened, his excellent care in hospital, the wonderful support that Sons of the Desert have given him (he is now able to read the cards etc that have been sent to him), the Statute Unveiling, the UK Convention and discussed a few things in the future. He seems pretty focused on the important thing in getting himself fit and is philosophical about any loses that he has suffered. After all this time of being confined to his bed, he tried to walk today but, not surprisingly, found that he wasn’t able to do so. He will be having physiotherapy to literally get him back on his feet over the next week or so. The burns are on his back but appear to be healing well and they were not causing Dave any discomfort as such. Read More..
