Yesterday was the classic ride high and fall flat at the last bend! (sic)"Started with positive blood results, drained all out (unlike in this picture) and I was more fussed about my makeup stash in hospital than anything else!" She continued: "A small bleed meant I ended up being rushed back into theatre having a colonoscopy and Endoscopy within the hour to check for the source."It’s amazing how quickly crash teams work, and As much as I just want to be home (it’s now getting on to two weeks in hospital), it’s also nice to feel in a safe place when my body isn’t playing ball.""Had an awful night of new regimes and being poked 10 times to find whatever working vein I have left (yes I have a port, but when you are on as much drugs as I am I need more lines in)."Dry shampoo and Lippy for the win! Was feeling good (it’s all relative!) and my liver numbers were FINALLY improving (go liver!!). My oncologist even talked about getting me home in a few days."Praying today will be un-eventual and stable! Thank you for your love."Deborah then finished the post by telling her followers that it will be either her, or her mother who will post further updates.Presenter Kate Thornton responded: "Oh Deb, I hope today is calmer and kinder.

Ralf Rangnick explains Cristiano Ronaldo sub after Man Utd diva's angry tantrum
Cristiano Ronaldo after the superstar’s angry reaction to being hauled off during Manchester United’s win at Brentford.Ronaldo started up-front for United and played a crucial role in the Mason Greenwood goal that ultimately sealed the three points for Rangnick’s men.The Portuguese attacker chested a lofted ball forward into the path of Bruno Fernandes who sprinted through on goal before playing a squared pass to Greenwood to tap-in.But nine minutes after that goal, which was United’s second of the game, Rangnick opted to replace Ronaldo with centre-back Harry Maguire.Ronaldo was left furious by that decision, slowly walking off the pitch before throwing a coat that had been handed to him by a kit-man to the ground.The 36-year-old continued to show his frustration while sitting on one of the steps in the dugout at the Brentford Community Stadium.He could be seen gesturing and asking why it was him who had been taken off before shaking his head.While he defended Ronaldo’s angry reaction, Rangnick insisted after the win that it had been the right call.Was Ralf Rangnick's decision to substitute Cristiano Ronaldo the right one? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section...He highlighted the fact that Ronaldo had only recently returned from injury, as well as the events of United’s last game in which they threw away a two-goal lead at Aston Villa, for his reasons.“That is normal - a striker wants to score,” Rangnick told BT Sport when asked about Ronaldo’s reaction to being taken off.“But he has come back from a little injury and it was important to remember we have got another game coming up.Want to be on the ball with all of the latest football news?Well then sign up for the brilliant Daily Star football email
