At work again today.
Ds is doing a lot better, in that he is starting to eat a little bit. Still coughing up a storm and still coughing up phlegm, but he is having longer periods in between coughing. He is still exhausted but is a bit brighter in himself. I have no idea how on earth he is going to manage going to work next week, but no doubt he'll try.
Thanks for all your kind words, they are greatly appreciated.
