    She is stil a little aneamic so will have to stay in until after christmas, but the paperwork for her moving to rehab for a couple of weeks is in place so hopefully that will be next week. We know that her illness is still terminal but we have more time, we don't know how much but its gone from 24 hours to we don't know when which is a huge thing. Her kidney function is also much improved so I am still crossing my fingers for at least several months more with her.

    She had two units of blood yesterday to deal with the anemia (would have liked to donate myself but I am o- and she is o+) today they are taking out the catheta out that they put in when she first was taken to hospital. We where told that she couldn't get out until that was removed so she is one step closer to escape. Tomorrow the first of the equipment needed to make the house safe for her is being delivered. So with luck she will be home in a week or two at the most. So much better

    A quick update on my mum, she has to go to a rehab place. They want her to have intensive work on getting her moving but she is moving round the hospital, getting better all the time. She is definately getting out (its just being held up by christmas and new year monday and friday are bank holidays and that is slowing everything down) Unlike a week ago when she was asked if she wanted out she just replied I don't know now she is asking strongly when she will be released. I know people slag off the national health service but (apart from the food) the nhs has been great she has gone from dying within a day to being medically fit to come home, clean ward and attentive nurses and nursing assistant (turns out some of them used to work where I do so I know them).
