Once again, thank you all so, so much for all your thoughts and good wishes for Zoe.

The OH and I went to see her yesterday. She is still in intensive care, under heavy sedation, and remains stable at present.

It was very upsetting to see Zoe lying there, unresponsive while her nurse carried out checks on her monitoring equipment, but I was so grateful to have got the chance to see her. I nattered away to her about the good times we'd had (of which there are many!), in particular our weekend at Soho Pride a few years ago which we'd always agreed was one of our best weekends ever and which we always looked back on with much happiness. I don't know if she could hear me blathering away, I hope she could.

Two very dear friends arrived to see Zoe while we were there, [livejournal.com profile] lisaloveslewis and [livejournal.com profile] retrogirl73. I was so happy to see them. We have all been friends for many years, all brought together by Pros, and it was so good to be able to support each other at such an awful time.

After our visit we all adjourned to the pub, along with Mike. He has practically been living at the hospital for the past week, so it gave him a break for a couple of hours. He is bearing up wonderfully well, despite being obviously devastated. Needless to say we raised a glass or two of encouragement to our Zoe, and shared a few laughs as well as tears. I think it did us all good.

If kind thoughts, good wishes and love can get somebody through this then I know Zoe will pull through with flying colours. Thank you all once again.

We'd been wondering what the news was - I'm in Swansea with Cornish Cat, Helio and Murphybabe to see MoonlightMead. So thank you so much for the update and we're all willing Zoe to pull through.

Thanks for updating us, it must have been heartbreaking for you but it's what true friends do isn't it? I bet Mike appreciated seeing you and I wouldn't be surprise at all if Zoe was aware you were there and enjoyed your nattering :)

I was just wondering what the news was. So many messages on FB, poor Mike can't possibly give them attention, but I am glad that he is so well supported. Thank you again for posting, I really appreciate hearing from you (and luka).

What a heart-breaking trip for you. But it sounds as if you did exactly the right thing - and the break must have helped Mike.

Thinking good thoughts for everyone.

That would have been a difficult visit, but it's good that you got to see Zoe (and Mike and your good friends).

It's nice that you shared the memories of fun times you had together. I'd also bet she heard at least some of what you said.

Thanks for the update. I'm glad you go to see her and I'm sure she could hear you.

*Keeping the good wishes, love and positive thoughts going her way*

Thank you for updating us, like so many others I have been thinking about Zoe so much and wishing her well. I'm so glad you were able to see and talk to Zoe and remember good times with her.
I also visited Moonlightmead yesterday who was so pleased to have several Pros friends visiting, and I passed on numerous messages of love and hugs from others, all much appreciated.

I do glad to hear that things appear to be improving, and hope they continue to do so. Zoe and Mike deserve more time, more happiness,

Oh, I'm so glad you were able to visit, and that there were other Pros friends there as well. I'm sure she was able to feel you all there and know she is loved. That's really the most critical thing. Wonderful, too, that you were able to give Mike a bit of a break, and the memory in all of this of how much you call care for Zoe and the good times. My heart is breaking over all of this, as I know yours is. *Hugs*

I think hospital visiting is one of the hardest things to do so I'm really pleased Zoe's partner had some company yesterday and that you could all cheer each other up. It sounds as though Zoe's comfortable and hopefully pain free, or at least not aware of any discomfort. So pleased you managed to see her.

Thank you so much for the update. It must've been both tough and wonderful for you to be there for her - I'm sure she knows you were there. More big hugs to you all. ♥

I'm so glad she's still hanging in there. Am hoping for a miracle and she pulls through.
It must have been good to have friends there to be able to support each other.

Thanks again for the update. *hugs*

Thanks for posting here, LJ seems so much better than FB for you to communicate both the situation and your feelings and thoughts.
For me, I have great difficulty imagining a quiet, still Zoe - not like her at all!
Take care, m'dear x

I'm so glad you got to visit! It was great you all got to spend some time together and then relax at the pub. There's not much else you can do but be there and be supportive.

Thank you so much for the update, I've been so anxious to hear news of Zoe. It must have been such a difficult visit, but I'm glad you found comfort in seeing your other friends and sharing the emotional impact. I feel for Mike as well, and it sounds like you eased some of his burden for an hour or two. If you hear any other news in the future, please share if you feel able and have permission.

Lots of love.

Thanks for keeping us updated, and lots of hugs to you after what must have been an emotional but so worthwhile visit. Thinking of all our poorly ones x

I'm so glad you got to see Zoe and had a chance to talk to her. I'm sure she would have known you were there. It is great to know that she is stable.

Your writing about 'nattering away' to Zoe, reminded me of EOS' fic "Voice Over".

Wonderful that two Pros-y friends were there too and that you were able to take Mike for a bit of a break. Love to you all.

So glad you at least got to see Zoe and Mike and everyone- Even if you couldn't be sure how much awareness she currently has I'm sure that having loved friends around chatting and engaging helps healing in some way we don't really understand. Thinking of Zoe, Mike and their families every day- and if anyone can get through this then I'd hope she can- it's been said, but she and Mike deserve so much more time together. Sending all the good vibes we can to both Zoe and Moonlightmead- and holding a few back for when youngest has his heart surgery in 2 weeks...*gibber* Thanks for keeping us updated xx
