Day 8 in hospital and HRH is getting used to it now. He will have an MRI on his hip tomorrow and I really hope this gives us answers. I was shocked yesterday to see the muscle atrophy in his legs, in particular his left leg (his left hip seems to be the problem). Both his legs are considerably thinner, but his left leg looks like a match stick, with his knee being the head of the match! Even if we get some idea of the problem tomorrow we still have a long road ahead of us as he will need intensive physio and assistance to build up his muscles and walk again.
HRH has been given cream for his skin as his excema started to flare up a little with the heat of the hospital. It is very good cream apparently and has urea in it. So my burning question is..........where do they get the urea from? Is it synthesised, animal or human. Do staff in the factory have to donate their pee and is it in their contract to so so? (being on site and all)
