Hi everyone!

I'm out on day release so thought I'd do a quick update.

First of all, get Rob being all good at blogging!

Like I say, I've been given a pass out today, though do have to be back at the hospital at 7. However, that's giving me time with the kids and a couple of meals that aren't of the hospital variety (how anyone gets better on those I don't know!).

The pneumonia has cleared up fairly well; I had a chest x-ray yesterday and it looked good. I had my last lot of IV antibiotics last night and now it's a waiting game; if I carry on and stay well this weekend, they should let me out next week. However, if I become symptomatic again it could be a sign the infection has spread to my stent and that means a 6 week course of IV antibiotics; which means I won't be out until Christmas.

Please keep everything crossed for me, I just want to get home and get back to normal. I'm also missing the munchkins like crazy and need more than the odd half hour by my hospital bed with them.

Take care everyone and hope to see you soon!

Great to hear from you Lou, will keep everything crossed that the infection hasn't spread and that you're home with Rob, Emily and Xander next week. We've missed you! Sending loads of love (and Sawyer), Rach, Scott, Charlotte, Cameron and Bump xxx

On the plus side though at least you didn't get trick or treated to b*ggery like the rest of us last night!!! Seriously now though, I have everything possible crossed for you, which is making it incredibly difficult to type and.. well, see actually!! I do hope everything goes ok and you're not in there until Christmas. If you need anything, just know where to find me. take care babe. xx
