Margaret Morris has been in hospital for tests. She is currently poorly. Michael Cawthorne (Pip Chaplin's brother) has had operations to open the arteries in his leg and remove infected tissue. He has infection in the bone. Laura is diabetic who has already lost one leg to amputation below the knee and is in danger of losing the other one. Linda Selkirk had a rhyzotomy into the spine for pain. The procedure went well, but it takes several weeks for the effect to be felt.
