We're back ....

For the last 3 weeks we have been with Baby Girl in hospital. One of those weeks was spent in Yorkhill ICU, the others in Forth Valley Royal Hospital.

I can tell you that when you see your precious girl stop being able to breathe for herself, it is THE most scary thing you will ever see.

Thankfully we were in the right place, as opposed to being on a flight to Turkey - which had been booked for that day!

So, holiday cancelled, hospital food tolerated, Ronald McDonald house appreciated, Nursing staff and Doctors admired and baby girls recovery amazed at!

Something to bear in mind, the next time you drive through a McDonalds....the odd change you get back from a £20 can just as easily be thrown in the charity collection basket at the counter. Having somewhere to stay through that awful time was a blessing.

Thankfully for her 14mth birthday we were at home recouperating, all of us ..... another blessing!

Oh bless you. My heart goes out to you all having had little Lexi poorly in hospital last Christmas I know just how helpless you will all have felt. I am so thrilled she has now made a good recovery and you have your baby girl back home.
Please give her big cuddles from me.

Hi Caroline - I have no idea how I missed this post - maybe because I've been testing the delights of the Jubilee hospital myself. Anyways, I hope the wee one is still doing well now and that you've recovered from the trauma. It really was fortunate that you were still here - what would we do without our wonderful doctors and nurses! Take care. Elizabeth xx
