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.
