This blog will probably go very quite from now on, at least until there is any sign of movement in Jennie’s upper body. This we are told could take weeks. She is still effectively paralysed but her breathing is improving with 50% help via her oxygen mask and her speech whilst slurred is much better than before. The care she is receiving in the ICU is excellent and I am told that Jennie is a model patient! However the Medics are sitting on the fence when asked how long before she is able to leave hospital.

‘Every case is different’ they say, ‘we just don’t know. The last GBS patient of Jennies age was here for 10 months’

…..Thanks very much!

Not surprisingly she tells me she would welcome visitors to relieve the monotony of just lying their totally helpless with virtually nothing to occupy the mind.
