I talked to Bruno tonight and he sounds so much better than he did on Monday night (before he was admitted) when he was struggling for air between sentences. Looks like he may still be in hospital for his birthday though, which is on Tuesday.
Wonder if I should get a strip-a-gram delivered to his room or something?
Bruno was all verklempft when he read this blog and all your kind comments, and you know that we Germans do not klempf easily. So thank you from Bruno for all your kind thoughts. It really meant so much to him.
We were much closer to losing him than we realised. He had been struggling with chest pain and lack of oxygen for two weeks before he was diagnosed, and apparently most fatalities from blood clots in the lungs occur within one hour. It's a testiment to his extreme level of fitness that he survived. They are rewriting all the medical books and naming the new wing in the hospital after him.
