More of an update

It's been a week since Mum's operation. Thanks to everyone who's asked how she's going/prayed for us/generally been lovely the last week. It's been full on, but things are looking good.

She struggled with low blood pressure for most of last week, which meant fainting/dizzy spells when the physios tried to get her up to walk. Thankfully, that has passed now and she's walking more and more each day.

It seems like the leg pain/numbness that she's experienced for over year has gone completely (yay!), which was the whole aim of the operation. However, she's suffering lots of wound pain, which is normal given she's been operated on.

She's been moved into a rehab hospital where the physios will see her regularly and get her doing lots of exercises to develop her muscle strength and mobility.

All in all, things are looking good and she's in good spirits.
