Update on Edna

I just rang my brother who spent 8 hours with Edna yesterday. He said that everything is going well, although she was a little depressed because she still felt tired and a bit weak. This was not unexpected as she has not been at all well for the past six months. However, all the 'vital signs' are good and she is out of bed and walking around and eating a little more. She may well be coming home at the weekend.

Once again, I deeply appreciate your prayers, support and good wishes from around the world. Thank you, thank you all.

That all sounds very encouraging. Feeling a bit tired a weak would be pretty normal at this stage, I would think. Message to Edna: try not to plan any bushwalking, house renovations, dancing lessons and similar activities for at least, oh say, a couple of days...!

I am glad that she is feeling a little better and I do think the more prayer, the better he hears us. How wonderdul to have prayers from around the world.

So glad to hear that Edna is out of the woods and doing well. It always seems to take longer than we expect to get back to normal I think. Our thoughts and prayers will continue to be with her your brother. Hope all is well with you too!
Thanks for the update.

Thanks for the news, Alice. Hope your sis-in-law gets her energy back soon.

Hope you're OK, too, with all the emotional ups & downs you will have been through.

A big hug to you,
from Jelly

Hi, Alice, I've heard that depression is a common occurrence after any surgery, but particularly heart surgery. Sometimes it helps to know that its a normal occurence and that it will pass. Continued good wishes for her speedy recovery.

My BIL had triple heart bypass and they said that depression was quite normal after that type of surgery. Hope she gets on her feet soon. You take care of yourself. I'll keep you both in my prayers.

Hi Alice,
I just popped in to see why I haven't seen a comment in Mum's blog lately- And I'm so sorry to hear it's something like this. Both you and Edna are in my thoughts and prayers.
love,
Kylie
