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

Manchester United for being “unbelievably lucky” in their win over the Bees on Wednesday.The Red Devils travelled to London for the rearranged Premier League clash, with Ralf Rangnick’s side claiming a welcome 3-1 win in their battle to finish in the top four.But during another dreadful first-half, the visitors had David de Gea to thank for keeping the scores goalless heading into the break, with the Spaniard pulling off a series of crucial saves.De Gea twice prevented Mathias Jensen from breaking the deadlock in the first period, with United coming out as a different team for the second period.United quickly punished Brentford for missing those chances when Anthony Elanga controlled Fred’s pass before heading in from close range 10 minutes after the interval.Mason Greenwood then provided the tap-in on a wonderful team goal after Bruno Fernandes raced onto Cristiano Ronaldo’s brilliant chest down.And Rangnick’s side made sure of all three points when substitute Marcus Rashford fired in at the near post.Though Ivan Toney pulled a goal back following a scramble, it was too little, too late for Brentford.Who was man of the match in Manchester United's win over Brentford? Let us know in the comments section...With his side having dominated the first-half, Frank was understandably unhappy to have taken nothing from the game.And in his post-match interview, he slammed United for being “unbelievably lucky” while dismissing the excuse of his side missing so many chances.“Unbelievably proud of my team.

Every Time I Die bassist Steve Micciche releases lengthy statement following band breakup
Every Time I Die frontman Keith Buckley and the band’s other four members – leading to their breakup this week – bassist Steve Micciche has given his perspective in a lengthy string of tweets.On Tuesday (January 18), Micciche, guitarists Jordan Buckley and Andy Williams, and drummer Clayton “Goose” Holyoak all shared a joint statement saying their last show with the band took place in December.They wrote: “While we hoped to come to an agreed upon legal statement that outlined the truth, we were informed today of something planned to be released not mutually agreed upon that consists of inaccuracies and controls a narrative to benefit one.”The message went on to say that there has been “no direct communication” with Buckley, saying “it’s either impossible for direct communication with him solely or we’ve been cut off to any and all communication by him himself”.The following day, Buckley responded with a lengthy statement, saying that “any emotional [or] metal connection” he had with his former bandmates had been “thoroughly severed” when he got a letter from a law firm on December 20, which Buckley had shared on the same day the band’s statement was issued.The letter said that the firm, Savur Law, had been retained by the rest of the band “for legal representation in connection with a separation agreement” between them and Buckley, requesting he contact them to discuss “the business terms of an amicable separation between the parties”.The news came after the band said last month that they were working on issues with Buckley “privately” after the singer announced an impromptu hiatus days earlier, saying he’d be skipping three of the band’s scheduled shows.“Caring for my own mental health has taken priority over EVERYTHING
