Hi All,

Sorry for the relative silence these last couple of days as have already burned through all my international minutes. You probably know most of this already... but I have pictures :)

However have been visiting with Mum every day and can say that she is getting better everyday - now that the anesthetic is out of her system.

Big milestone yesterday as she walked to the day room and escaped the depression of the ward. The day room is amazing, on the 11th floor and only a couple of hundred meters along the Thames from the London eye it offers equivalent views of the city at only a fracture of the price! Almost better time that day was after a few hours when we returned to the ward the other patients celebrating as the shrill and opinionated (to put it mildly) woman down the end had been transferred.

Here is the view of the sitting room and another of Mum enjoying it.

You'll be pleased to know that the hospital she is in, St. Thomas', is apparently one of the best in the world for orthopaedic surgery and is only a block away from where the accident happened.

The hospital itself is stunning, here is a shot of it from the outside.

And even more so when you put it in context

Just looking through the photos... just before the accident we had taken a tourist shot from what must have been right outside the hospital wall.
