8.2.10

Jake’s now off the morphine and IV fluids. He can run wild and terrorise the ward! Except he’s not too keen on walking and constantly wants to be carried. He’s the only toddler on the ward, so he’s got full run of the play and sensory rooms. The other patients are either babies or much older children, many of whom we are getting to know. Despite the sometimes depressing surroundings, there is a sense of community on the ward, more than raising a child alone at home. He’s also allowed to eat and devoured quite a bit of toast today.

Glad Jake is making such good progress and plenty of poo is coming through! Best wishes for good health for all of you, and plenty of sleep so you can cope with being in hospital. It sounds like everything is going according to the best case scenario, which is fab!

I have been following Jake's progress. Hope you are all doing okay.

Hope it doesn't seem too trivial, but I have sent you a sunshine award from my blog - hope it works for you!
