After 33 days lying on her back, Jennie today was maneuvered by 2 physios so that she could sit on the edge of the bed without oxygen, when she promptly asked for another cup of tea!

Blood pressure and temperature OK and no dizziness. Apart from some pain in her right elbow and back, she responded very well. She was told she had passed the floppiness test by being able to sit more or less upright without too much support and being able to move her legs a little.

More action is promised for next week and we now await a visit from the speech therapist to gauge Jennies throat action and whether she can come off the oxygen for good.
