..update

Jane came out of hospital at the weekend. Her vein had collapsed making it impossible to the deliver the antibiotics via IV. When the Dr said she should take them orally, she was out the door and on her way home.
Since then we have had a procession of district nurses in to change dressing etc... Jane herself is quite down at the moment due to the slow recovery. We have had some tearful moments recently and it had been hard to try to get her back on track. The situation remains the same, she still has an open wound on her leg that is being treated daily to stop infection, along with high dose antibiotics. This is proving very upsetting for her because she cannot see any improvements. She still struggles to walk short distances even with her frame and is constantly tired. We did go shopping for the first time yesterday, to buy the Xmas turkey. She did really well with the aid of a wheel chair but that's the most she has done in about six weeks.

It is now snowing heavily after a week of freezing temperatures. It can only get better from this point......

Happy Christmas, Martin

Jane lift that lip put on your very best smile you're home and that's what counts christmas with your family and friends. YOU WILL HEAL but considering what you've been through you're being far too tough on yourself as is the norm for you! I'm off to family for christmas but will be thinking of you! We are in this together for the long haul and WE CAN BEAT THIS BL--DY CANCER! We all have our down days Jane but we're still here my friend.
Merry Christmas to you and your entire family. You will be in my prayers. Spring is just around the corner!

Hi Jane....happy to hear that you are home so keep up now and put the bad stuff behind you. Everyday you will feel a little better, but it takes time and I know you are one of those people who want to get up and get going. Slow and steady wins the race, so for now don't let us down...we are all rooting for you!!!
Hang on and hang in there.....
