Where I stayed
Katherine mum's house
Mary came off the ventilator late on the 6th, the last apparatus of life support attached to her body, and has been progressing extremely well since then. Whilst not exactly her first words, shortly after gaining full consciousness, and the ability to talk, Katherine got told faintly but firmly to go home and be with her family.
Mary is now on a ward and while we are not fully out of the woods yet; Mary is still very vulnerable; there may yet be side effects; and even a speedy recovery will take some considerable time, the fact that Mary is now making derisory and comical remarks about the other patients on the ward and the general state of nursing care, is only good news as far as we are concerned.
