Anthea Hill coming through

A few days ago I wrote about Anthea Hill, wife of the Bishop of Bristol, who was seriously injured in a car accident on the M4 last Sunday. I notice that many people were googling "Anthea Hill" for news of her.

I am delighted to say that the Diocese of Bristol have set up a blog giving regular updates on Anthea. There is a videcast (if that's what you call it) from Bishop Mike from yesterday.

The update from yesterday is good news:

Today has continued to bring good news.

Anthea has been communicating more (the tracheotomy means she can’t speak aloud yet), her vison is clear and she clearly is understanding better what has happened and what is going on. On a physical level, she has moved all her limbs and they’ve taken away the ventilator. Now she’s breathing on her own, she should be able to speak soon. The staff hope to help her sit up to forty degrees and maybe transfer her out of intensive care in the next 24 hours.

Everyone is understandably upbeat and hoping these steps forward will continue.
