Surgery postponed


So, the hospital decided surgery on a Saturday was a bad idea as there’s less staff in icu over the weekend, so I’m having it Monday morning instead.

Ive had all the pre op tests and signed all the forms, so I’m just chilling in my halo until surgery on Monday morning!

I can’t sit up as I start having seizures so I have to stay flat in bed and we have the Cord and traction set up for if it’s needed.

This also gives me a few more days to raise some more funds, for the rest of the cost of the air ambulance, the accommodation and the excess the insurance isn’t paying!

So far we you have raised £10k for me, towards the £30k needed & I’m grateful for every penny! Thank you to everyone for you’re continued support, you’re all amazing.
