Just to let you know that Emily is no longer hooked up to the iron lung as she is breathing on her own now.

This also means that she can speak, as the pipe was into her throat and lungs keeping her from talking.

She still has an infection that is keeping her wound from healing, so she is to have a scan today to find out exactly where it's coming from. Hopefully then she can start to recover.

She is still in intensive care and is expected to remain there for the next few days at least. But all in all, she is making slow progress in small steps.

Thank you all so much for your prayers and your support and I know I can rely on you to keep Emily in your thoughts and prayers for a while longer yet. It seems to be working.

Also for Vincent, her Husband. He has had an awful time through this and it showed on Thursday when he broke down and cried to us. It was heartbreaking to see him like that and I ask that prayers go up for him too, to give him strength to get through this.

Many thanks once again for your support

I will keep you informed of Emily's progress.

It's great that she's improving... slowly but surely.
She and Vincent will of course remain in our prayers.
