I've just had this email from N. All seems to be going well which is so good to hear.
The medical team were stars and rallied around Shoshi and stayed on and did her op, and she was looked after with personal care over her first night.. She was all woozy with a happy morphine grin when I saw her in the recovery room.
Yesterday pretty sleepy and full of pain killers and morphine but very happy and relieved whilst quite at peace with her bag..
Today improved and sends her love to you all. She was sat out for 10 minutes but the chair was awful. Her feet did not reach the floor and her weight was on her tummy. So she was back to bed. She will walk a little. As they have not known her before they will need to realise that if she used a chair and crutches she is not going to be striding corridors in a few days. they are a kind lot so she should be ok.
She is not up to reading and a laptop may be several days yet so I will have to suffice.
Here is a pic of her yesterday with "Nursie Bear" who went to hospital to look after dozens of my old parishioners and now is with Shoshi.
So love from Shoshi, Nursie and N
