In poignant scenes, Home and Away has revealed the results of Martha and Roo Stewart’s transplant procedure.
Viewers are aware that Martha has endured a protracted illness and that daughter Roo has consented to donate a kidney to help mom.
Family friend Marilyn believes that Roo is concerned about losing control during the transplant situation in the scenes, which are brand-new to UK viewers. Roo acknowledges that she won’t be able to unwind until everything is done.
Marilyn then says that she should exert her might on behalf of her parents rather than herself, which makes Roo smile.
Later, after an understandably anxious Alf has said farewell to Roo and Martha, they are carried off to surgery. He is left to wait while pacing in the waiting area, and Marilyn joins him to console him.
Thankfully, the transplant coordinator subsequently provides positive news, saying that Roo is out of surgery and doing well, at which point Alf reunites with her.
Before Martha is wheeled into the waiting room, to to everyone’s relief, there is still no word about her. Martha continues by declaring her accomplishment.
Could the Stewart family’s future hold some ray of hope finally?
Weekdays at 1.15pm on Channel 5 and 6pm on 5STAR, Home and Away is broadcast.
