Sitting in the recovery area at Christchurch Public Hospital at present.
Have a drip in my left hand, and a very small amount of pain in my left jaw, and otherwise feeling great.
Had a fairly good earthquake here about an hour ago – 5.0 centered about 10km away – caused quite a bit of way in the building and the hospital switched over to backup generators for about 15 minutes. There was a small aftershock about 15 minutes after that one. Many of the nurses seemed quite nervous.
Haven’t spoken to the surgeon yet, and expect to in the next hour or so.
Head feeling clear.
Noticing that I can’t quite get my tongue to go as far left in my mouth as I could before surgery, and that may wear off.
First personal assessment – all good.
Love to all
