Wow.. what a day! I can’t believe we’ve been in Boston for barely 48 hours and so much has happened.
Today really was a big long wait, but it was worth it. Meg was in surgery for 8 hours, and emerged soon after in intensive care with a funky hairstyle! (Neurosurgeons aren’t noted for their hairstyling but even Prof Black was pleased with his handiwork!)
It was a huge relief to hear from Prof Black and his team that everything went smoothly. But it was just magic to see a sleepy Meg in intensive care. She talked to us and within a few hours was looking her normal self. First thing she was allowed were a few ice cubes to sooth her throat and she really liked them – you should have seen her eyes light up when she was allowed some cold water! Tomorrow she can have breakfast and she’ll move to the ward. She’s such a star she’ll be better in no time :o)
She’s sleeping now and Helen and Peter are staying with her tonight. Thank you all so much for all your comments and emails. You’ve really helped keep us going (and given us something to distract us while we were waiting!) and I know Meg is really touched by your kind words.
Meg has made it!
