Medics are happy overall with how Daisy’s doing. First 48 hours was particularly difficult mostly because we lost the epidural early on. Yesterday afternoon saw a really big turning point in that the physio came and helped Daisy into a chair for an hour; a massive mental and physical manoeuvre. We managed to half the morphine and ketamine which means the first signs of the Daisy we all know have started to emerge. ‘Tube food’ started last night with success but unfortunately the nasogastric tubes both were pulled out in the night despite being stitched. At least one of them has to go back in this morning.
The kindest messages of support are just piling in from unbelievable sources which I’m finding hugely comforting. Anyone who knows me will be aware that I turn into someone else without any sleep so keep them coming please. Apparently a friend of Aunty Mary’s who is in Israel, lit a candle for Daisy on Wednesday in Galilee and a friend of Rosemary’s had the congregation praying for Daisy in Oban Cathedral on Sunday. Daisy needs this and more at the moment
