Here’s our boys in their odd socks to support of #wdsd17
George adores them.
They were both so lovely and generous with their time and the work they do promoting Makaton is amazing.
It’s a year since George underwent surgery on his intestine and 365 days and 1000 poops later (not that I’m counting) – we have everything to thank the surgical team in The Royal Alex, Brighton for.
That was a long, scary day – but time has healed George literally and us metaphorically and there is barely a mark on him. Incredible.
George’s sleeping oxygen levels (which had been the cause for concern) normalised this afternoon.
As such, he’s coming home.
Thanks for everyone’s kind words of support today.
I am cuddling George in a hospital room as I type.
He took a marked turn for the worst last night with a high temperature and rapid breathing, so we brought him in.
George had a chest x-ray which confirmed an infection, was given yet more antibiotics and oxygen throughout the night.
He’s groggy today, but sounding better than he did.
Doctors are observing him throughout the day and will make a call later if he needs another night here.
Once again we’re reminded how amazing the NHS is.
This boy certainly keeps us on our toes!
George had his first post-surgical checkup at Sheffield Children’s Hospital today.
We no longer need to dilate the poor little guy (insert a metal rod where the sun doesn’t shine once a day) and he doesn’t need to go back again for a year – unless there’s any sign of a problem.
I’m so pleased it went well as moving to a new area and into the care of a new surgeon was always a concern for us.
George is amazing.
