Visitors are not allowed to take photos in ICU but Leah took this “selfie” this morning.
She is very awake but comfortable & making very determined efforts to communicate via her iPad but it’s complicated by the fact that the muscle relaxants have made her vision a bit blurry.
She says that being on the ventilator is easier than when she was struggling to breathe. Leah’s oxygen levels have continued to improve & I am hugely relieved as they certainly weren’t looking so good yesterday, either before or after she went on the ventilator.
I try to choose my words carefully when writing on this Journey page, I’m too tired and befuddled to remember all the ICU consultants names so I have secretly given them nicknames – today we have Mr Happy – they haven’t all been allocated complimentary titles!
Thank you to those who asked – I slept reasonably well last night & feel fairly well rested. I have use of the lovely room in the Cancer Centre over the weekend if I want it.
Leah used her iPad to put this photo on her Facebook page and underneath she wrote the words “Didn’t exactly plan my sweet 16 birthday or the New Year to be like this but thanks to everyone whose been praying. I love you mummy “
