Oh dear oh dear oh dear

It may be a while before I can speak to you again.  As I write we are waiting for the ambulance to take Daniel to hospital.  We experienced that unheard-of phenomenon, a home visit by the GP, after his blood tests showed that he still has an infection plus side-effects from the antibiotics.  The worst of both worlds, you might say.  He is quite severely jaundiced and has had nasty diarrhoea for the last twelve hours.  It has not been pleasant and I am now exhausted, having been woken twice in the night.  The poor lad is really quite unwell; though not so out of it that he couldn’t specify which games he wanted me to pack and ask whether the hospital has wi-fi.  I have packed a bag for him and one for me which includes fruit, dried fruit, water and of course doughnuts for blood sugar.

Think of us and if you are the praying types, please pray.

  1. As a non praying type, I am sending you a boatload of positive waves. Warm ones. We have been talking and thinking of you both this afternoon. But you are a positive person, Daniel is obviously not a total stretcher case, as he is thinking of his mental wellbeing. That is very positive, also he is going to be in hospital, which should enable you to have a respite from nursing, and he will be looked after professionally.
    Now as long as he is not placed on a ward with any west Africans everything should be fine.

    Take care all

  2. Its bad news and its good news all at once. and its a funny kind of birthday present too. Get some rest, let the professionals nurse him and see to all his needs except of course for the Motherly love. Sending thoughts to you all. x
