Well, Roz is not quite wearing silk pyjamas.... yet. (She is still confined to what I'm sure she would describe as a deeply unflattering hospital gown). However, hopefully she'll be progressing back towards those pyjamas sometime soon.
The spinal fusion surgery seems to have gone well yesterday. She spent 18 hours in intensive care but is now stable enough to have been moved and all the initial signs of post-operative recovery are good. If things continue well, she'll be in hospital until next Wednesday. Lots of small steps every day... right now she looks like a sleeping Pippi Longstocking with her hair in two braids to keep it out of the way and hospital compression stockings instead of stripy ones. She said to say a massive thank you for all the wonderful comments and words of support on her previous post. They really meant a lot to her. The next post will be when she is up to it herself. She has asked that any comments for this post are left for her to read first and then publish so please be aware that the comment number will probably stay at zero for a while. We are all wishing her good healing, strength and speedy recovery.
ps: these photos were actually taken by her dad one lazy sunday morning a couple of months ago.
