The mum clings to Charity for support as daughter Sarah fights to stay alive…
Still reeling from the life-shattering events of the last week’s Home Farm masquerade ball and Joe vanishing on their wedding day, Debbie Dingle is about to take another emotional punch.
Up at the hospital, where her daughter Sarah has spent months being cared for, the transplant team has news. A viable donor heart has been found. It’s the moment the family have been waiting for but it sends Sarah into panic. It’s a very risky operation – but without it she won’t survive.
‘Sarah needs this operation to have quality of life,’ says Charley
Webb, who plays Debbie.
Arriving on the ward, Debbie does her best to put her own trials behind her, and provide support and reassurance to Sarah, who clings to her mum in fear.
Having been prepped for surgery, Sarah is taken to theatre and Debbie breaks down, knowing that if things don’t go well, she could die.
While the surgeons battle to save Sarah, the Dingles cling together.
Faith and Charity are standing strong in the hospital corridors, willing her to survive the ordeal.
When a doctor emerges, they are desperate for an update and are stricken to be told that, at present, it’s too early for anyone to know if Sarah’s body is coping with the transplant.
Will she pull through?
