Queen still “markedly recovering”

21 08 2012

Following her stroke – in the language of the palace, “a shortage of blood to her brain” – the queen is still making a remarkable recovery. She has been doing that from the day of the stroke. Readers may recall that this linked post referred to the way the palace household fudges on details of royal illnesses.

The most recent report is at NNT. As usual, it is short:

Her Majesty the Queen’s general conditions have markedly improved after a month of intravenous medication to cure a slight shortage of blood to the brain.

The Bureau of the Royal Household said in its ninth announcement issued last evening that Her Majesty could walk longer distances and eat normally without complications.

The team of royal doctors at Siriraj Hospital has asked for Her Majesty’s permission to stop giving intravenous medication while requesting that physical therapy be continued.

The last sentence is a doozie. The other highlighted items indicate that the stroke may have been more severe than the Household lets on, that she has had dysphagia, and undergoing intravenous tissue plasminogen activator treatment or similar thrombolytic therapy.

Is it just PPT that doesn’t understand why royal health is so sensitive that no real news is possble?
