An Encouraging Update

Hello ladies.
Just a quick update to let you know how Fiona is getting on. She is still in the High Dependency Unit but there are plans to move her into an ordinary ward when a bed becomes available. She is much brighter, if very weak, but she has started treatments to thin her blood to break up the clots. The doctors have been carrying out a lot of tests to try to get to the bottom of all her recent problems so we can only hope that something will be found to sort things out. She is now disconnected from all the drips ,catheter and monitors although she is still on oxygen 24/7 but is back on 2 litres/minute as opposed to the 15 litres/minute they had her on at first and is on a nebuliser for short periods throughout the day.
She is very thankful, as am I, for all your good wishes and prayers. You have all been such an encouragement over this last year of what has felt like continual problems. I think that she might be kept in for a while yet but at least she is receiving good care.
Thank you so much for your continued interest and support.
Kindest Regards,


  1. Thank you William for letting us know.You must be feeling a little easier with Fiona's progress.You are all in my prayers.
