Hi it's Holly here, I have been to visit Rachy tonight and she's kindly asked me to update you guys via her blog.
She is poorly but stable at the minute - she is on Bi-Pap (non-invasive ventilator) 24hours a day. Doctors are currently working and focusing on pain management above everything else at the moment.
Although low in spirits she still had that beautiful smile on her face :) We even managed a little giggle about Rachy "passing wind". Due to the Bi-Pap pushing air into her lungs, some still manages to pass into her stomach, leaving her bloated and uncomfortable. Whilst I was there the nurse released the wind through a syringe (via her PEG), and we were giggling about her passing wind in a very lady like manner.
She appreciates all the messages, support and love that has been shown to her at this difficult time.
I will be sure to update you when I can, I am hoping to visit again on Wednesday evening.
Love you always Rachy.
Sending some smiles!
