Good morning ladies. Well what a day Friday turned out to be. When I went in to afternoon visiting Fiona was not looking so well as she had been. The pneumonia seems to be making a comeback and she is back on the intravenous antibiotics. They took her away for another chest Xray to find out what is going on. With that it did not matter what the Plastics peole said she will not be home just yet.
There's a fantastic nurse on Fiona's ward called Claire and she is with it. She always goes the extra mile. She did not think Fiona was well enough to go to the Plastics clinic so she phoned them up and arranged for them to come up to the ward. I was still there when they came and I saw the wounds uncovered. I hadn't seen them since Fiona had gone in. What a wonderful surprise we got. They are really clearing up. The improvement is amazing. I couldn't believe they had come on so well. Her heel is so much better. The outcome is that they obviously don't want to do anything with this pneumonia lurking and they think that everything should heal well anyway. They are going to see her again in two weeks and they hope that if today's improvement is maintained they will not have to operate. They reckon that the intarvenous antibiotics combined with the oxygen she has been on has meant that the wounds have been getting a far healthier blood supply and this has accelerated the healing process.
When I left we were both a lot happier. If they can knock this pneumonia on the head things are really looking up.
I'm afraid you'll have to suffer me for a day or two yet. Thanks again for your support.
