Today, after 26 days, Jennie left her friends in the Intensive Care High Dependency Unit for a bed in the Neuro Ward. She now looks quite naked (in a literal sense of course!) without all the lines and tubes and machinery and monitoring screens that kept her alive during this period of intense worry and concern.

We now look forward to the next step in her recovery, ie being able to breathe without oxygen assistance. She is currently needing 45% which when reduced to 28% means that she will be able to breathe on her own. The other good news is that she is being weaned off the insulin as her blood sugar level has stabilised although her temperature is all over the place.
