Update On Mum

Dear all, thank you for your prayers and good wishes.

Mum has been told she will have to stay in hospital for several weeks at least, as she has an atypical pneumonia which is pretty dug-resistant and requires a whole cocktail of oral and IV antibiotics. And she has systemic MRSA for good measure, so she is in a single isolation room and we have to gown and glove before we can go in.

She is much brighter in herself, but is obviously still very frail and poorly at present. We are restricting visits with the young ones to 40 minutes per day, as she tires very easily although the children cheer her up immensely :-)

Weeks!? wow. I hope she'll start feeling better soon.

Glad to know she is getting aggressive treatment. MRSA can be overcome.

Prayers continue, poor though they be.

Continuing prayers until your Mother is safely home again with you. What a worrying time you must all be having.
Sending my best wishes.
