Sorry for the lack of updates but MM has endured a tough couple of weeks. The infections continued to make her very sleepy and it was rare for anyone to get a response from her. She had another operation on Friday and we are hopeful the infection is now under control. As a result she has been more awake in the last couple of days and she even stroked my arm on Tuesday.
BB, of course started school and on the first day as we walked to school for the first time, he announced, ‘Mummy usually walks me to school.’ The day was made tougher watching all the proud Mums and Dads waving their offspring to class.
Nevertheless, the day improved as BB had a great day (and that’s what MM would be thinking is the most important thing) and then he threw the biggest tantrum because he wanted to wear his uniform to the beach!
Throughout this whole ordeal I have been overwhelmed by the support given to the family, whether this by our employers, our friends, or the schools and nurseries the children attend. Thank you.
So we now face another week of fresh challenges and perhaps the biggest and most worrying is that ‘Chilled Out Boy’ has asked for a ‘Pirate Birthday Cake’ ….. ‘Just like Mummy made for his brother.’ Now that will be one photo that won’t be posted on Facebook or make Silent Sunday.
