Leg is looking good, they're able to get a pulse in it now, so they're going to start reducing the blood thinners. Shes off the oxygen now too
I have past on your best wishes to Shirley
She says thanks for all your best wishes, thoughts and prayers. She says shes doing ok now, shes had a rough few of days, she is able to stay in the hospital in an apartment above the ward. Shirleys able to get big cuddles now and Grace is starting to look more like herself but no smiles as yet
Found my phone (lose it everyday). Anyway text from shirley
They're home! Woohoo!! They've gotta go back tomorrow to get drain site stitches removed and get her diuretics prescription. Lil grace is still a bit uncomfortable but otherwise doing well. Shirley going to try and get on later.
OMG you guys have been wonderful, I am so overwhelmed at how Grace and us have been in your thoughts.
Anyway been a really rough week here, but as you all said she has come round so quickly. She is smiling again now too, which is even better than before. The surgery seems to have been a sucess and there is only a very slight leak in the valve, which they dont think they give her any further problems, we have already noticed an improvment in her feeding, although I think it may be something to do with the fact that she had nothing to eat from 6am monday morning right through to wednesday afternoon when they took the drains out.
The poor little mite has done so well, when I think of how much she has been through this week and look back at the pictures,( i will get them on tomorrow )I have taken it just amazes me. The staff at the hospital were amazing and we couldnt have asked for a better team of people looking after her.
Anyway, have just got Grace settled and am gonna go for a shower as I am exhausted and looking forward to getting into my own bed tonight after staying a the hospital from last sunday. Have a feeling that Grace will be up during the night as she is still not a happy bunny.
Will catch up on all the posts tomorrow when we get back from the hospital.
Thanks again to everyone and a big thanks to Lizzy for passing on my messages
