Just had a call form Hileena, the surgeon has said he wants her in tomorrow morning, it might mean having screws and a plate in her shoulder, if he cant do that then it will have to be a new shoulder..gosh I do feel for her..and feel a bit helpless, but she knows we are all here for her..
Love
Barbara

    Barbara thank you for the update. I am so sorry to hear Hileena is facing surgery bless her.
    I'll be in her pocket tomorrow and make sure the surgeon does a good job.
    Then she'll be starting to heal instead of suffering as she is now.
    Love strength and ((()))

    Poor, dear Hileena. I feel so sorry for her. It is good she was seen today. It is obviously very urgent to be asked to come in tomorrow, but we knew that really. She is such a brave soul. It is one thing after another for her. Please send her my love.

    Thanks for the update. Poor Hileena has really been through the ringer, yet she courageously plods on as an inspiration to us all. Sending her positive vibes and gentle hugs, and the same for her husband who must be feeling so very anxious.

    Really sorry to hear Hileena has had to have her shoulder operated on. I hope she gets better soon and that the physios can work out how she can mobilise safely and without causing too much pain.

    Please give her my best wishes and thanks for the update.

    So sorry for her, she has been through such a lot. Keeping my fingers crossed for her, especially in terms of mobility.

    I'm pleased to hear she's home - I hope she's resting and taking things easy - I know that's anathema to her but surely necessary at the moment.

    Get well soon, Hileena, you're missed. DD

    Hello, it's lovely to hear from you and thank you for getting in touch despite the challenge. I am charged with passing on Sticky's best wishes, she is currently away and her internet access is dodgy but she has been thinking of you. DD

    Hi Hileena,

    So good you are home but so sorry to hear that you are in pain. It is good of you to keep us up to date when things are difficult for you.

    Sending you healing vibes and I hope you can keep the pain to a minimum. Must be really difficult for you. It is not as if the shoulder is the only problem that you have to contend with at this time. When do you see the surgeon again?

    You are a brave soul.

    Love

    Dear Hileena,

    You are a one! Venturing out so soon after your op. I so admire you and your "get up and go" (with a little planning ;)) when you have been through so much. I often think of you when I am having a bad five minutes which can be quite often these days. :roll:

    I hope you enjoyed your little outing. I am sure it did you good.

    Wishing you all the very best, be sensible and be good! ;)

    Love

    Hileena its no wonder you are in pain that wads a nasty fall, but I do admire for getting out and about..I think sitting in the house thinking about things cam make it worse..(if thats possible ) you be careful with those controls we don't want you going round in circles..you really are a one off..I hope the pain ease very soon (()) xx
    Love
