Good news from Southport.
Mum has come on in small, but measurable, bounds over the last week. She spoke on Saturday and, while she's still very much in ICU and very disorientated/uncomfortable, she is stable.
She is now on very little added oxygen and has had another operation to add a stent. Her kidneys are on the way to recovery and there's now some colour (other than yellow) in her cheeks. They even gave her a couple of mouthfulls of ice cream yesterday.
It's great to see her awake, it's a pity I had to come back. Dad and I have had very little sleep all weekend, and I'd imagine it'll be the same for him throughout this week. I'm very tired and might have to take the day off to do some catching up tomorrow...
