What he told us was that the chances of it being something as simple as an ulcer were very very slim, considering the amount of blood loss. He really prepared us for the fact that it may be a rupture in her bowel and therefore, fatal. She would bleed to death quickly and peacefully. We waited.
She came out of the theatre just after 1am.
It had been a (small) ulcer, which he had been able to fix there and then.
I am losing count of the amount of times she beats the rather daunting odds.
Unfortunately, while I was with Nanna, Bardi's mom passed away. I had hoped to get there before. But I was just too late.
