George was looking and feeling much better this morning, and his breathing rate was more normal, so all those prayers and storming heaven did some good! We had a comprehensive brief from the (outgoing) consultant and have a high confidence that George will pull through, though there is still a hill to climb before we can breathe a sigh of relief. I was wrong in saying that there was an infection on his Hickmann line – they found an infection in his blood which they identified from samples taken through his Hickmann line; they removed the line as a precaution. This was, they think, a gut bug which penetrated his system when his defenses were low – they think there is also a chest bug which is being combatted.
More news tonight.

  1. Oh little man!!! Big big love to youse – sounds like it’s been a pretty dramatic coupla days…

    Hope you’re now flushed of nasty bugs and getting back to your wee fighting self…

    hygenic hugs and antiseptic kisses


  2. Saying the Order prayer over & over last night was a good plan then; note to self: apply to other yucky areas of life as required.

    THANK GOD (literally)! Keep on keeping on.
