Week commencing 8th December 2008

Week commencing 8th December 2008 – December is a good month for me. I was born on the 16th of it, I only had to stay in hospital for a few hours (after I was born!) and my special doctors from Great Ormond Street Hospital told mummy and daddy that my heart is no longer showing signs of heart failure! I had my heart

Week commencing 1st December 2008

Week commencing 1st December 2008 – Hospital life seems a distant memory now. We still have to go back twice a week for my ritual stabbings (usually it’s one or 2 in both my feet but sometimes it can be more if it’s not done right – I make it very obvious I’m not happy!) to test my INR levels. It looks like my

Week commencing 24th November 2008

Week commencing 24th November 2008 – It’s hard to believe I’ve been home for just over a week now! I’ve settled in very well and love being able to watch tv and sleep in my comfy chair without worrying about any nurses coming in and stabbing me all the time. Since I’ve been home I’ve had to go back to the hospital 3 times

Monday 17th November 2008

Monday 17th November 2008 – Guess what? Mummy came and woke me up this morning and there wasn’t a nurse or doctor anywhere to be seen! I slept all night and didn’t wake up once and even had half a jar of breakfast before mummy took me upstairs to bash daddy awake while she took Dylan to school. Daddy took some bashing before he

Sunday 16th November 2008

Sunday 16th November 2008 – My nurse didn’t come and wake me up as early as she did yesterday and didn’t try shovelling spoonfuls of porridge into me as soon as I’d woken up, much to my relief! Daddy came in just after I’d woken up and changed me and got me dressed nicely. Then he gave me my porridge and I ate half
