Heard on the radio this morning she'd had a scan and the baby was alive and well

Cried!

Found it here too

Assume JT means something about the bloke, hunker.

It is fab news, and that she is off the ventilator!

Gwenick Sun 12-Jun-05 13:22:44

aww that's great news. If she's 12/13 weeks pg then she'd probably have just found out before she was attacked

Am so happy for her and her family - they deserve this good news.

edam Sun 12-Jun-05 14:10:18

how lovely. and how wonderful that she's continuing to improve and is off ventilation.

Its good the baby is ok HOWEVER I am so sad about the whole situation she is in and I worry for her family, her baby, her state of mind - everything - its just so tradgic. I don't want to put a dampener on this thread, just being realistic that its such a sad situation and I feel so anxious about her and her life! She and her family are very religious which her faith can hopefully help them all come through this but I find optimism very hard after such a devasting thing to have happened.

hunkermunker Sun 12-Jun-05 14:50:11

I'm just really hopeful that she'll continue to improve - she has feeling they never thought she would, she's breathing unaided and can sit up too - when you think what the prognosis was at the beginning, this is amazing!

Having had a partner paralysed (we're not together anymore), I am deeply concerned that this poor woman is being propped up higher and higher on a pedestal - especially by her husband. It's a really shitty thing that's happened - I hope she is given the chance to vent her anger and hatred for what has happened. The whole 'Saint Abigail' thing makes me very uneasy.

highlander - are you a Christian????

Caligula Wed 15-Jun-05 09:44:22

highlander, how do you know if she feels anger and hatred?

MamaMaiasaura Wed 15-Jun-05 09:59:21

highlander, i am sure she is receiving psychological input and I am sure her child and husband will also be. I have absolutley no idea whatsoever in terms of the range of emotions that they will be experiencing but I am comforted to believe that she appears to have an extremely supportive husband and family and is receiving care from many professionals.

MamaMaiasaura Wed 15-Jun-05 10:00:11

sorry - highlander - did you and your ex=partner receive much support? Sorry to hear of your situation.
