Debbie's GRS is complete & she is fine - UPDATED

Obviously I'm not family, so the hospital wouldn't really speak to me, but Liz (the clinical nurse) very kindly briefly came on the phone at 2.50pm. I didn't like to nag them, of course.
"Obviously I can't go into detail, but the operation went well, and she's back on the ward and she's fine", she said.
I thanked her very much for taking the time to speak to me, and asked her to pass on our best wishes.
Wonderful to know that she's ok, and that all went well. She was so serene yesterday, and I'm sure she'll rest well this week.

UPDATED 4.20pm by Nicky
Debbie just called me! She sounded amazing, not in any pain (meds, I would presume), and they're keeping her very comfortable. She sounded very clear and lucid, much more so than others I've spoken to after surgeries. She's made of tough stuff! She asked me to pass on her thanks to everyone, and will try to make what phonecalls she can. I had to tell her to keep them short! so as not to tire. But she was clearly elated, but also very serene and happy.
She asked me to direct you to some music she is thinking of that explains how she feels, either by Simple Minds, or the Miley Cyrus song displayed on this blog page.

Yay and double yay!! I can add that she called me this afternoon too and she sounded amazing - not like someone who had come round from a general anaesthetic about 4 hours before! She sounded calm and serene and very very happy.

And would you believe it...well if know her you would...she was asking me how I was.

Go Debbie! Sending you my love, for when you finally see this!!

Oh Debbie love, mega congratulations. These are special times, your path has been long and broken but now... I hope this last bit continues to go so well.

I'm thinking of you and I'm thinking of Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz in her red shoes and with all her heart clicking her heels and saying "There is no place like home". Debbie, you inspire love and happiness in others. May you feel the love too :-)
