BBC Hospital viewers heartbroken for poorly mum
Royal Hospital doctors and a mum of two young boys were left in a difficult position
BBC Hospital viewers were left heartbroken for a poorly mum-of-two left in a horrific situation.
Orthopaedic surgeons are shown left frustrated as the service they’ve spent three years planning is struggling to get off the ground.
In critical care at The Royal, Blessing, a 27-year-old mum of two young boys, is seriously ill with Lupus, an incurable auto-immune disease.
She had developed sepsis, a serious infection in her knee, which could kill her.
But she was too ill to follow the move to Aintree for an orthopaedic operation and the equipment the clinicians need for her operation has already been moved.
Surgeons at The Royal were forced to operate on the spot, using traditional syringes to flush out the infection.
Viewers took to Twitter, heartbroken by Blessing's story whilst praising staff at The Royal left in a difficult position.
One viewer said: "Totes emosh", followed by a crying emoji.
Sam wrote: "Bloody hell, this poor lady. Lupus is awful."
Sara said: "OMG! Poor Blessing. She's only young too. Please let her get better."标签：
