Thanks so much, H25. Yes, she had a lovely 90th birthday last month, and a very kind friend in JOburg sent a magnificant birthday cake ( haven't found any good baker in Pretoria ) and she loved it. Only started significant fading in the last week or 2. Friday thought we'd lose her very quickly, but she had been over-sedated by an over-confident and under-experienced young doctor, and I had them stop the sedation and she seemed to be emerging abd coming back. Off to see her Saturday morning, and hope she'll be more herself. We hope if the pressure sores improve enough, we can take her home next week. Would keep my fingers crossed, but my typing is bad enough already !
