Another piece of good news (thanks to Maureen for sending me the link) – Malala is out of the hospital.
Over the past few weeks, Malala has been leaving the hospital on home visits to spend time with her father Ziauddin, mother Toorpekai and younger brothers, Khushal and Atul.
The University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust said doctors believe she will continue to make good progress outside the hospital.
The schoolgirl is due to undergo cranial reconstruction surgery in late January or early February.
Dr Dave Rosser, the trust’s medical director, said: “Malala is a strong young woman and has worked hard with the people caring for her to make excellent progress in her recovery.
“Following discussions with Malala and her medical team, we decided that she would benefit from being at home with her parents and two brothers.
“She will return to the hospital as an outpatient and our therapies team will continue to work with her at home to supervise her care.”
That makes me happy.
