Feb 10 progress report

Hi all

Annie had another "procedure" and trip to theatre on Saturday the 7th. The nasal gastric tube they were using to feed her was removed and a P.E.G. inserted direct into her stomach/intestines. She no longer has the discomfort of the tube down her throat and she has ceased the constant vomiting (she tells me). The doctors say she will be better nourished in this manner, thus able to better fight the (still present) bacterial infections. Having another anaesthetic, number 13 by my count - or maybe 14, has weakened her a bit and she has to begin again to regain her strength to even stand up next to her bed on a frame. She is following the fire situation on her radio and is as appalled as we all are.

Best to everyone, Laurie
