”Roo thought she would lose her all over again.”
With the chance that her mother Martha will never have the life-saving operation she requires, Roo tries everything she can to guarantee that it occurs. Is she, however, setting herself up for disappointment?
Martha (Belinda Giblin) is told she isn’t well enough to undergo surgery during a visit to the transplant centre in this week’s episode of Home And Away.
Dr. Logan (Harley Bonner) says that her blood pressure is high and that her medicine will need to be increased as her condition worsens.

a tearful Martha blames herself for her predicament, but she accepts her fate. Ray Meagher’s character, Alf, is filled with emotion and tries to conceal it from his wife.
Roo (Georgie Parker), on the other hand, refuses to accept the doctor’s conclusion and does study into cardiac diseases and stress reduction.
Georgie, 57, tells TV WEEK that Roo has only known her mother for a few years.
“Martha came back in her life, and then Roo could have saved her life, but her mother wouldn’t let her, and she thought she would lose her all over again.”

The next morning, Roo delivers her results to Logan, who follows through with a plan that is in line with Roo’s health goals. Alf isn’t certain it’s true, but Martha is eager to give it a shot.
“It’s difficult to talk to Alf about it since he’s so stubborn,” Georgie explains.
Alf returns home to discover Martha, Roo, and Marilyn (Emily Symons) meditating on the couch. And he detects a scent, which reveals itself to be vegetable soup and Buddha bowls.
Despite his scepticism, he admits he hasn’t seen Martha having this much fun in a long time. Perhaps Roo is right…
The next day, the trio head off on a walk, but it proves too much for Martha, who struggles to breathe.
Alf snaps at his daughter for pushing her mum too hard. Suddenly, Roo is reminded of how fragile her mother is and her father’s deep concerns.

Mia says goodbye to Summer Bay
Emotions are running high in the Parata household when Mia makes the heartbreaking decision to leave town.
Mia (Anna Samson) has had a difficult time adjusting to life without her late spouse Ari (Rob Kipa-Williams). Chloe (Sam Barrett), her daughter, chose to stay in Summer Bay, but knows why her mother must leave. “In a lot of ways, Ari was her mother’s soulmate and the glue that held their family together,” Sam tells TV WEEK.
Tane (Ethan Browne) gives Mia a one-way ticket to New Zealand, where his brother was laid to rest, after Chloe encourages her mother to start over.
Before Mia packs her bags and travels to the airport, the family gets together for one more pizza party. Goodbye, Mia!
