After exactly 3 weeks being kept alive by a life support machine, the ventilator has today been turned off and tubes removed. Excellent news!

However Jennie still needs oxygen support and time to adjust to her new found freedom. I am told it will be a few days or even weeks before she will be able to swallow,or drink, eat or talk. Some will say I’ve been let off the hook again! Watch this blog for her first words.

We are so grateful for all the messages of support, cards and prayers that we relay to Jennie. We know she is deriving so much strength from all your good wishes and appears to be winning the fight to drive out the bad antibodies from her body.
