Further News

Hello ladies. I am pleased to report that Fiona's improvement continues. The intravenous antibiotics seem to be dealing with the infection and things are beginning to clear up. Doctors have always had difficulty in finding decent veins on Fiona for taking blood or fitting drips. They have given up this time and have introdused a canula into her arm that they have fed through her veins to her heart. This apparently can be left in place for about 6 months if required so when she gets home they will leave it in place for when she goes back in to see the Plastics Consultant.
She is looking a lot better and is thrilled with all your comments and emails. You have cheered her up no end. I'm truly grateful for all your interest.


  1. Great news to hear the improvements in both her leg and in her general self. Hoping that you are doing ok as well too. Lots of love to you both and hope to keep hearing positive news on fiona Emma xx

  16. Wow, how saddened I was to see that you were ill. I've been so busy for the past week that I haven't been on to comment on my lovely friends blogs. I was shocked to see that you hadn't been well and wished I had checked my blog friends earlier. I am so very glad that the improvements have been positive. I hope for a very speedy recovery for you. You are such a wonderful blog friend, I feel like I know you well. Prayers and smiles for a very speedy recovery.
    Hugs xx
