Consensus is that she had a cardiac ‘event’which caused blood to leak into her lungs.

After two weeks in ITU, then on ward, then watched in the Heart Centre.

They still don’t know what caused it but apparently some of the medication she takes for anaemia, depression, fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis has damaged her stomach, but as she’s now on more tablets and morphine pads any drug assessment will take some time.


By all accounts she’s had everyone from cardiology down to dermatology (she has a wart on her right hand) do tests.

The outcome is she’s home and her heart is dying.

She fell over a couple of hours of getting home but that was just weaknesss in her legs for not walking much in the last two weeks. Thankfully she just lost the load baring in her legs so they just folded under her and she landed on her bum. I got her up and she was determined to keeping going with what she was doing.


Thank you so much to everyone for their thoughts and well wishes. I told her you were asking after her and got to telling her about some of the people on here such as Immoral Minority, Zoidberg (and Lunar), etc...

You guys and gals are brilliant.
