On the whole Anthea has made good progress this week. She has started physiotherapy for her damaged left hand and this appears to be going well. Though the nursing staff were not necessarily convinced that her feeding tube could be removed permanently, Anthea has made good progress with eating despite the fact that she is only allowed to lie at a 60% angle. Obviously this makes swallowing slightly complicated and can give digestive problems.

There has been no further information about the long term plan for Anthea’s rehabilitation but it is clear that at some stage the issue of her being transferred to another hospital is on the agenda.
