Update from the South

Mum has not been good at all. Diagnosis is serious and we’re looking at a long journey to recovery.

Yesterday Dad beside her hospital bed for hours and she managed to vaguely mouth a few random words, opened her eyes very occasionally, but didn’t react or focus.

This morning Dad rings me to say “I popped out for a paper and came back to find an answer phone message from your mother!”.

She’s talking (albeit a little slurred and slowly), she’s awake, she can move.

This afternoon I spent 2 minutes on the phone to her.

Better news than any of us could possibly have dared dream.
