an update on Paul..

yesterday we went to visit Paul. he is now in rehabiliation where he will hopefully learn to walk again or at least get control of his left side to some extent.
Here he was, sitting up in bed... I just about cried with happiness. His eyes were back to normal.. not the dreadful grey eyes that I saw last week before his operation. He was complaining about the food and I said to him that he was better now cause he was complaining and he laughed at that. He is still a little confused but that is normal as the tumour had caused him to have a stroke so the brain is affected a little but this will also get better with time & prayers of course! He will be having chemo and radiation as mop-up - just incase any rogue cells escaped.. Dr Teo is brilliant.
thankyou so much for all the continuing prayers.. I told Paul that I had friends all over the world praying for him and he said they must have worked. And we know they did!

(now that this is all settling down, I will be by blogs this week.. getting back to normal routine.)

I missed this post when I commented on Harry's birthday.
This is the best news Robyn, it truly sounds like Paul is on the mend. It is a miracle, and I'm sure the prayer from around the world helped and Dr Teo did the rest. It was a miracle too that the Dr was found to help in the first place.
