Thank you so much for all your messages and good wishes for us you are a fantastic lot of peeps and I hope you are all doing ok!! Terry's mum is out of intensive care but still in the high a dependency unit but they say she has make a remarkable recovery in the last 48 hours...... mentally she hasn't suffered from the lack of oxygen but we don't know if any other organs have been affected yet the Drs say we just have to wait and see what happens, because it took them a few minutes to resuscitate her but for her age which is 80 nearly 81 and was living in her own house and very active. The Drs cant believe how well she has come through it so far.... she will be allowed to have other visitors from tomorrow which will make things a little easier for us as Terry is an only child and it looks like she is going to have to stay here with us now so we will have to change a few things indoors. I am just trying to finishing off a card which seems to has taken for ever to make but it feels good to be making something lol. luv gina xx
