Back Home....

Well had another two exciting days on the childrens ward. Unfortunately Harry was down for his op in the afternoon which meant him not being able to eat from 7am. What a mare. He's just like a scavaging rat when his hungry...!!! At least the Merryhill is good for something and that's wasting a couple of hours and being able to stop Harry from eating. Mind you watching him dribbling while we had a large mac and fries was good...!!! (only joking...;))

He was first one down and this time the anaesthetist actually listened to us this time and gassed him first before trying to fit the canula. He was a really brave boy and went down without a fuss but being a true Gardener uttered his last words of 'dinner' before he went under...!!! He had a rough time in recovery which involved having a bleed from his mouth and nose and him pulling the canula out of his hand. They even thought about taking him back in to stop the bleeding. This carried on in the ward and during the night had a few more bleeds. He was quite upset and sore. The surgeon checked him out in the morning and decided to give him till lunch time to see if it would stop. Luckly it did. Two boxes of pringles (they belonged to the little girls across the room from us, finders keepers rules apply), toast and lunch convinced them he could come home.

He's still not grand and very quiet but he's home.

On a better note, Tom has a duel role in the school play this year, a traveller from afar and a wise man...!!! He'll be with sheep also. The teacher also said he could also do the collection after. I told her I was all for making it authentic and letting him bumshuffle on the floor with a cardboard label on him and a tin collection tray. For some reason she wasn't up for that... wonder why...??? Good job she's a good friend and has a decent sense of humour....


  1. I hope Harry is feeling brighter and please feed you children (lol0. As for Tom roles in the play how cute and how unpolitcally correct you are, naughty you. That humour is so why i love you. xxx

  2. what a spoilsport of a teacher! Would have doubled the takings - esp if he tripped them up while he was down there....!
