Think he is not yet out of the woods but it certainly sounds like he is heading in the right direction.

WorraLiberty Fri 15-Mar-13 09:33:29

Fantastic news!

What a little fighter grin thanks

That is great news Olivia, long may his recovery continue.

Lovely, lovely news. May he continue to recover so well x

Snazzynewyear Fri 15-Mar-13 10:33:33

Only just seen this. So glad there have been positive developments. Saying a prayer for this little boy and his family.

Great news Olivia. Still praying and hoping. He sounds a little fighter.

WheresMyCow Fri 15-Mar-13 11:12:52

That's some fantastic news...well done little fighter!

Only just seen this, sorry, OhEl, glad he's making progress, poor little mite.

Have you been able to see his mom? How's she and the rest of the family bearing up?

Sending strength, thoughts and positivity to all the family.

BrainSurgeon Fri 15-Mar-13 11:47:01

Poor little sausage, sounds horribly serious... But great to hear he is improving.
Love and strength for the entire family x

No haven't been able to see Mom as yet, she lives 100 miles away.
Wondering what would be helpful to post to her.

Tee2072 Fri 15-Mar-13 12:03:58

Oh so glad to hear he's doing better.

I would see if you can arrange to have a hot meal sent to her or a variety of snacks/granola etc. being stuck in the hospital with an ill child is timeless and you sort of graze all day.

Can you tell her we're all thinking of her ? If it was me I think that would mean more than anything you could send, but others may have more practical ideas ?!
Great to have a godmother at MNHQ though I reckon, who can tap into so many positive vibes coming his way smile Love and prayers to all x

Bowednotbroken Fri 15-Mar-13 12:14:24

Only just seen this Olivia - like everyone else sending warm thoughts and wishes. Good to hear of an improvement. As to what to post - how about a little cuddly something for your godson and something your dear friend likes (nice chocolate, hand cream?) xx

OliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 15-Mar-13 12:45:38

The fabulous Woolly Hugs are sending a blanket - and I will tell her Juggling yes.

BurnThisDiscoDown Fri 15-Mar-13 13:27:03

Just seen this, sending love and prayers to your DGodson and his loved ones. So glad that he seems to be getting better, hope he recovers fully soon. Xxx

Ahhh ! That will be perfect, I'm so pleased - aren't they fab ? thanks

LadyBeagleEyes Fri 15-Mar-13 13:34:12

Oh and if Olivia is on duty tonight can we all be nice and not get into arguments.
She doesn't need the stress.smile

SecretNutellaFix Fri 15-Mar-13 14:10:48

Hope he continues to improve over the weekend. Glad there is better news this morning.

Very glad to hear he's had a better night, positive thoughts still heading to all of you.

So glad to hear he's doing better. Keeping him and you in my thoughts.


hellhasnofurylikeahungrywoman Fri 15-Mar-13 15:46:20

Glad to hear the news.

Whenever my kids were in hospital I always appreciated nice toiletries, especially moisturisers and hand cream. Lots of hospital concourses seem to have the infamous Costas Coffee on them now so maybe a Costas voucher?

MelodyBaker Fri 15-Mar-13 16:50:25

What wonderful news smile

siiiiiiiiigh Fri 15-Mar-13 16:51:16

Things useful to me on dull, monotonous, sleepless hospital stays:

1.cheery texts with news of the outside world
2.knowing what's round the corner, I mean the literal corner. Being able to get off the ward for half an hour is a sanity saver - so, get onto google maps and find out five places - small supermarket/coffee shops/charity shops/parks/hairdresser/nail place/swimming pool/anywhere your friend might enjoy. All within a brisk 10 min walk where she could kill half an hour and get back quickly if she feels the fear.
3.a playlist to download onto ipod of songs which will make her smile?
4. lip salve
5. healthy juice/food (Seriously, why do canteens only sell indigestion starting, artery blocking meals?)and some chocolates/one or two of those tiny bottles of wine/something indulgent.
6. something she can share with her wee one, a new book to read, finger paints and a job lot of plain cards to decorate, jelly to mess about in, cornflour and food colouring and a big Tupperware box to make gloop (messy play in a hospital is to be encouraged) hand puppets - things to help her be an animated, capable mum when she doesn't much feel like one.

Anything that reminds you that you are not alone, that folk care and that there's a world outside the weird time zone that exists in hospital.

You are a lovely friend.

Abra1d Fri 15-Mar-13 17:07:14

Something nice to smell so that she feels pampered and hospital smells fade away. A l'Occitane handcream?

MrsDeVere Fri 15-Mar-13 17:27:47

I couldn't have done without my little DAB radio. I am sure these have been replaced by something more 'with it' <gimmer> though.
I would have gone bonkers if I couldn't have listened to R4 and R4xtra through the night when sleep was impossible.

I still have it. Its a bit battered but it still works.

All love to your Godson and his family x

EmpressOfTheSevenOceans Fri 15-Mar-13 17:30:04

We're all cheering for him in the Puddle xxx

RatherBeOnThePiste Fri 15-Mar-13 17:36:44

Hoping his Little Hug got to him today <fingers crossed>

Big hugs for big people, small gentle ones for small people X

Oh, I saw that Little Hug, Pistey, it's truly gorgeous. You lot are such Satrs.

I second hand cream, magazines, or books that are easily putdownable, these Cheerio books were great when mine were tiny.

Our local hopsital has a Costa but it doesn't take Costa cards, so they might not take vouchers? you could send some naice coffee sachets - there's normally facilities on the ward, but quite basic supplies.

if there are older siblings to visit, perhaps some sticker books or an aquadraw to occupy them?

I wish him a speedy healthy homeward journey. x

Hope he continues to recover well Olivia.

If you and she both have iPhones or other smart phones you could start a game of Scramble with friends. It got me through lots of bleak nights in hospital with the dcs who had to stay in. It's a free app a bit like scrabble

MmeLindor Fri 15-Mar-13 20:40:00

Hope he continues to improve, Olivia.

Keeping fingers and toes crossed.

Oh, lovely, more good news today smile.

I hope he and his mum will enjoy each other's and the Woolly Hugs x.

Thumbwitch Sat 16-Mar-13 11:18:40

Hope he's still improving Olivia. x

LadyBeagleEyes Sat 16-Mar-13 11:32:45

Just wow to you littlehug blanket makers out there.
You are truly amazing.

TheYamiOfYawn Sat 16-Mar-13 11:41:19

When my godson was very ill in hospital I sent little parcels every couple of days so that there would be a small stream of nice things: graze boxes, nice chocolate, nicely-scented toiletries, a lucky pebble, some worry dolls, a couple of easy reading books carefully vetted for sad child-related storylines.

I also tested daily.

Thinking of him and his family.

OliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Sat 16-Mar-13 13:46:21

Graze boxes already en route -
Think he is still doing well

BIWI Sat 16-Mar-13 14:43:09

SandWitch Mon 18-Mar-13 19:07:15

Missed this, so really pleased to see such positive news at the end of the thread.

Olivia - make sure your friend knows to try and have some time for herself in the next few days. I know from bitter experience that there is often a real 'low' when the relief sets in and the panic is over. It is as if your body has been hanging on so tight in the stress that when it lets go, it lets everthing fall with a bump.
She may need your kind words and 'hugs' - even if from 100 miles away as much now as she did last week.

MummyMellie Wed 20-Mar-13 11:06:38

Wow - you did it! My little man pulled through. Even before reading this I could feel an amazing wave of love and support coming from you guys, I can't tell you how much it helped me through the dark times.
My little Lazarus is now at home and recovering well, though still a little wobbly (and hopefully less adventurous).
I'm feeling a bit shakey now, but your beautiful words have just given me a real lift. Sending each and every one of you a big thank you hug, especially Olivia - what a friend to have! [Grin] Xxx

TooYappy Wed 20-Mar-13 11:25:11

Oh so pleased he is well.

Your words are making me, erm... feel like I have something in my eye! smile

Ahh, so glad you're back home now, good to hear our thoughts were some comfort x

Thumbwitch Wed 20-Mar-13 12:08:56

So very pleased he is home and recovering MummyMellie and yes, let's hope he never gets into a situation like that again! thanks

So glad he's on the mend! Bug hug back to you too MummyMellie, hope you're doing okay.

UnChartered Wed 20-Mar-13 12:47:21

fantastic news thanks

MummyMellie - just so pleased for ALL of you. You take care of YOU as well as him.
