Monday 10th November 2008

Monday 10th November 2008 – Daddy woke me up this morning while he was talking to my nurse. I was really pleased to see him and gave him some big smiles while we played for a little while. Then he gave me some breakfast and I had over half a jar again. My nurse told daddy that my local hospital had phoned earlier and

Sunday 9th November 2008

Sunday 9th November 2008 – I’m still a bit confused. Even more so today! Mummy and daddy came in and I was wide awake and playing nicely with my toys in my cot. Mummy picked me up and gave me a cuddle and then daddy changed me and gave me a cuddle too. I tried telling them that my nurse had crept in during

Saturday 8th November 2008

Saturday 8th November 2008 – I don’t understand these doctors. For weeks now they’ve been stuffing my tummy with milk and I’ve been busy throwing it all back out again. Today I wake up and I’m hungry! When mummy and daddy came in I put on a brave face though and played with them for a little while but couldn’t understand why daddy wasn’t

Friday 7th November 2008

Friday 7th November 2008 – Mummy and daddy were hoping my INR levels were low enough for me to have my hickman line taken out this morning. My nurse told them I’d been good and had even given her a scare by hiding at the bottom of my cot when she had come to check me! Then she told them that she’d given me

Thursday 6th November 2008

Thursday 6th November 2008 – I was in a happy, smiley mood when mummy and daddy came this morning. My nurse told them how I’d slept all night apart from when he took my blood pressure (I don’t like that because it’s like someone’s squeezing my leg very tightly!) and temperature. Mummy and daddy said I didn’t like being restricted so they weren’t too

Wednesday 5th November 2008

Wednesday 5th November 2008 – Mummy and daddy got here very early this morning as they were hoping my operation to remove my hickman line would happen today. Daddy asked my nurse if I could have some breakfast and she said yes so I ate a quarter of a jar of porridge without being sick. A little while later I had 50mls of milk

Tuesday 4th November 2008

Tuesday 4th November 2008 – I was trying to learn how to crawl again when mummy and daddy came in this morning. I’ve nearly mastered the art of getting from A to B but I still can’t figure out how to see where I’m trying to get to. Mummy and daddy laughed when they saw me and mummy said something about me lifting my

Monday 3rd November 2008

Monday 3rd November 2008 – At midnight last night my nurse came in and took my last continuous drug away! My heparin was stopped as my INR levels are now stable enough for me not to need it anymore and so my warfarin is, at long last, working! When mummy and daddy came in this morning I was in my pushchair watching the tv.

Sunday 2nd November 2008

Sunday 2nd November 2008 – Daddy was awake very early this morning and was very busy tidying up our room. Then he went out to have a shower and when he came back he gave me a bath. I’m starting to enjoy having baths again but it’s very difficult having them because my hickman line and other tube in my foot need to be

Saturday 1st November 2008

Saturday 1st November 2008 – I woke daddy up very early this morning as I was being sick again. It wasn’t as big as the ones I had yesterday but it still meant daddy had to rescue me from swimming around in it! When I’d finished being sick I was much happier and me and daddy played for a little while with my balloon
