George did manage to regain his rationality by this evening and said that he does remember what had happened in the morning, but that it had all seemed unreal at the time! This afternoon he was able to watch the Cup Final in his room with the family. Quite understandably, he is feeling uncomfortable from all the time spent lying in bed with a face mask on. He has been allowed spells without the mask for a few minutes, and he now is achieving the same results when using a lighter and more comfortable mask. He found his voice again this evening!!
There was a second moment of hilarity this morning during his irrational behaviour when the doctor asked if he wanted any hospital food, and George turned it down emphatically – the doctor was then reassured that he really was still rational! They are feeding him nutrition through a nasal gastric tube – never thought of ‘snorting’ my food – but the bacon sandwiches don’t fit down it very well!!!! He has been having ice lollies too.
It looks like the corner is near, if we haven’t already turned it, so keep those prayers on the boil!

  6. Hey George
    You’ve brought a tear to my eye!

    Keep strong guys, Goerge will pull through. He’s a Norton after all (If he’s anything like Harri, he’ll be up and about soon!)

    Lots of hugs to all the Nortons from South Africa
