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.
