with all the board room / ticket price crap going on at the moment, what happened last season with the Gracie fund and everything makes you proud to be QPR.

Good luck with the operation. Glad my little bit helped.
Didn't like the Premiership anyway.

Just received an e-mail from the Murphy's who are in the USA, Grace's opertation is tomorrow. They are all understandably nervous about tomorrow but the people in St Louis are taking good care of them all. The Murphy's have sent a link to an article about the St Louis Semi-proffesional soccer team hosting a day for Grace. The Day went really well and Grace's Mum will send some photo's as soon as she can.

So a collective, everything crossed for Grace tomorrow then. U R's aniclap

Great to hear Rookey, thanks for the update. I never quite get round to checking their own website so it's good to hear the progress!

Grace is now in intensive care. She was in a lot of pain in recovery. They have since sorted out her pain medication and she is sleeping on and off. It's going to be a very long night for both of us. She is quite tearful and when she looks at you with her huge brown eyes your heart wants to break.

Dr Park came to see us straight after her surgery and is very pleased with how it all went. I did ask if a cuddle from him was inappropriate he just smiled, so I did it anyway.

The next couple of days are going to be very stressful so I may not be able to update you as much as I have been.

So very proud of our little "Lilly Lou".

God Bless everyone and thank you all so much for your messages today.

Lots of Love

Grace ...

Post by ZENITH R » Tue Jul 05, 2011 8:13 am

Any further news?

Is Grace still in Intensive Care?

I've been following her story, and it makes me so proud of my fellow Hoops fans, I really hope that when she's recovered and back home in England, that the club have her and her family along to a game as their guests.

Not back in England until the end of this month. The fundraising only covered the cost of Grace's operation, there is continual physio and a trip back to America next year to check on Grace's progress.

Here are a few snippets of the latest news.

Grace was discharged from hospital yesterday, after a physio session in the morning. We were very apprehensive leaving the hospital as they have looked after us so very well. It is lovely to be back as a family once again. We have also changed room's in the hotel so we now have a balcony, which was lovely this evening as we had a brilliant view of the St Louis fire work display.

I am so very shocked at how weak Grace is and she is still very resentful about the SDR surgery. To her, she now can't walk and before she could. It's very hard to keep reassuring her and trying to explain why. She hasn't really regained her fighting spirit yet, but we are keeping positive and trying to get it back. When we came home this evening, she had a bath and we did some physio, including Ted as we do at home, so it turned into a competition. What is lovely is to have Ed here to help, we take it turns so it's just not Mum that is always the task master!

We now start our physio at the hospital everyday so am hoping that her strength will start to come back. Unfortunately, both of the kids don't seem to be enjoying American food, yes, I know, hard to believe. Especially Grace, so this isn't helping with her stamina. Ed on the other hand is loving it!

Feeling rather emotionally drained at the moment and a little stressed, but am positive with some good nights sleep away from the hospital we will all regain our strength and positive outlook.

Whilst it is tough now, you will look back at all this and see that it was the best thing you have done for Gracie.

As a proud supporter and donater, thanks for letting us be involved in your truly remarkable story.
