    Ian, may the grace of God continue to be with you. I am still praying for you that God will shower down his blessing and his mercies on you. You may not know how sick you were but only God knows. Take it easy although it may be hard to be at home not doing anythingbut God will make a way. God bless and keep you and your mother and father also who were there while you were sick. They are more than a tower of strength. God bless you.

    Wonderful news! So glad to hear you've managed to escape.  On a side note - my Pa did jump out the window and run  away from hospital... twice.  Well, more like waddle with wheeler walker in the second instance - that man could move when threatened with an injection and bad food!  The second time he was dragged back by the Director of Nursing (his daughter-in-law) and given a right telling off!  I have an image of you breaking out McGuyver style and making a getaway on your scooter now :)

    Hopefully you won't be seeing the place again in a hurry.

    Wishing you all the peace and rest you need and want.

    Hey Ian

    What wonderful news to hear that you are leaving hospital and are feeling so much better.  A lot of recuperating and rest to be had by you, but so pleased that you'll be doing that back in Bristol where you can continue to be surrounded by your family, who have been awesome through this.  You'll also have so many Whitefielders near by too!

    Like you Lost has baffled me, but I'm sure after a 2nd watch you'll still understand it more than me!  Perhaps you and Wally will need to help me to understand!  Flash Forward was great, and I hope the US TV people change their mind and do another series!!

    Stay safe and well Ian, and I hope to see you soon.

    You're out! That's great news :) Now you can go to the Apple Store and buy an iPad as I know that is why you have been so desperate to leave that place ;)

    So glad you are better.

    Hey Ian,

    Glad to see you’ve nearly managed to escape the NHS’s finest — hope the boredom and daft routine isn’t getting to you *too* much!

    Hi Ian

    Great to hear you are making good progress and managing to escape from the ward.

    That bit completely resonates with me as my husband was in hospital recently for a big op. We went through the phases of him being in high dependency then back on to normal ward and also getting real food to eat (he lost a bit of his small intestine so eating was a phased process!). When we got to the bit when he could escape from the ward (pref without too many tubes) we would go and sit outside and eat icecream. Was a bit like going on a date. Afterwards I'd see him back to his room and then go home - all very innocent!

    Look forward to hearing that you are out of hospital soon - doesn't matter how well they look after you it is still brilliant to escape. Mind you, has to be said that there is more mess around the house now that husband is back... ;)

    Wishing you better! Its been an enourmous relief to the rest of us to know how you're doing via your blogs/facebook etc. Even if you must be watching Lost *yawn*...

    Wishing you busty nurses and all the kind words, energy and hot showers in the world.

    Hi Ian, Tim and I are so glad to hear that you are finally on the mend, we couldn't believe it when we heard what had happened to you. We've been following the journal and been mighty impressed with your mum's blogging skills! 

    Do you know how much longer you have to stay in hospital for?

    I laughed when I read your review of the Lost finale! Although it wasn't confusing it left so many questions unanswered....

    Anyway keep up with the blogging as we are all anxious to know how you are doing.

     Take care

     Funmi and Tim

    Ian I am so glad you have made a speedy recovery, thank God for his healingpowers. there is God cannot do if we ask. I never stop praying for you and I know others prayer were going up to him from here and over there. All we have to do is pray and leave it to him. Thank God for his blessing towards you his child. God bless also the doctor and the nursesthat were able to take care of you, without him they could not have done the job. I was not there but I know that you went through a serious illness.
    All I can do is just give thanks to God.
    God bless you and keep you in your recovery.

    Hey Buddy!

    It's great to see you're updating this site!  Had us all worried for a bit.

    I really liked the ending of Lost, made me cry(we all know how hard that is to do).  It still left alot of unanswered questions though.
    At least Fringe is still going!
    Have you had a chance to see the final 24 yet?!

    Let me know if you need anything mate, in the form of digital entertainment!

    i have tried to call on your mobile, but the signal must really be rubbish there.  I'll keep trying.

    Hopefully speak to you soon

    Take care

    Hi Ian
    It's so good to read your messages- and to know that you still have that cheeky sense of humour - after all you've been through!

    You made me smile when you talked about having some decent tea for once - without thickener! It took me back to my days as a product manager for a medical 'enteral nutrition' company. Boy did we have some fun. Especially when the product manager for the 'thickening agent' called Thick 'n' Easy came out with us on girlie nights - well that's how they started out anyway. Let's just say she personified the product name unashamedly - and tried to take us all down with her!! I'll tell you more about it off-air :-).

    Anyway I'm sorry we haven't managed to get to see you yet - we feel guilty about it and everyone is constantly asking about you at work.

    We are going to try to come over next week. So that'll be a thrill for you to look forward to :-)!

    Lots of love and gugs to you Ian. And our very best wishes to your devoted family.
