Well...this is all very clever! I am on the other side of the world but I have an update on Mum's progress! She text me at 2pm Auzzie time (which is about 3am over the pond!) as she wasn't sleeping very well...being the only patient in the Intensive Care unit, the lovely nurse allowed me to call her on her mobile! :o)
She sounded very groggy and a bit out of it - like you do after a few too many drinks! (sorry Mum, when you read this! :p) but that's down to all the strong painkillers she's on at the moment. It was great to speak to her & I can't believe she's already been standing up! It sounds like the surgery went perfectly and for the next few weeks it's all about pain control and the slow healing process...
It sounds like the "hospital" (hotel!!) is amazing and she told me how she's been eating some nice meals and as I was on the phone the nurse brought her a lovely hot cup of tea! :o)
Being on the other side of the world when Mum is going through something like this is reeeaaaallly hard but i've realised it's a blessing in disguise as when she can't sleep at night, there is always someone to talk to on the other side of the world! :o)
I will update the blog soon when I speak to Mum again but I just want to say a massive thank you for all your support and kind messages the past few weeks - she really does have great friends and without you, I don't know how she'd have got through the difficult patches!
Lots of love, Rachie xxxxx
p.s - Well done to David for his little update - keep them coming! :o) xxxx
