Good morning ladies. I'm glad to report that Fiona was a bit better again. Apparantly, after the Xray and more test what she has at the minute is not pneumonia as it was first thought but a very particular type of chest infection the name of which I would not even attempt to spell out. It apparantly responds to a very specific antibiotic and although Perth didn't have any in their pharmacy they sent a taxi to Ninewells in Dundee for a supply and she is getting it intravenously. It is a ten day course but they hope if she responds well they will be able to send her home an a few days to finish the course with oral antibiotics.
The cards continue to arrive and she now has a handsome collection of handmade cards from all over the world which are the object of much admiration from the nurses. You have all been so kind and your good wishes and prayers have been such an encouragement to us both. Thank you so much.
