Not much to update

Day two with new lungs, and there isn't much to update.
Tor is having a nice long sleep and giving her new lungs a chance to get to know their new house- it's quite normal to be kept sedated and ventilated at this point.
Tor's parents and sister are with her, holding her hand and rubbing her feet- making sure she knows they're there with her. Messages left for her by her many Twitter, blog and Facebook fans are being read out to her whilst she's sleeping, so please continue with the lovely comments.
When speaking to her Mum, it's easy to see where Tor gets her strength from, her family are simply amazing. To have lived through this nightmare for the past 4 years and stayed so dignified and full of grace, is a testimony to their love and strength.
Getting through the surgery is only the beginning of this new fight, but the overwhelming support shown for her has proven she wont be doing it alone.
