For those of you who remember George's arrival last October (flapping husband, non-appearing midwife, paramedics accompanied by film crew etc etc), I just wanted to let you know that the programme in which we feature will be shown on the 15th April. It is on the BBC (not sure if it's BBC1 or 2) and it's called Trauma. We only appear very fleetingly so I wouldn't go out of your way to watch it but just thought some of you might like to see it.
We will be away on hols so will miss it. It really shows very little (I don't appear and there is no blood!) but it is very nice to have George captured on film at just a couple of minutes old.
Nice to hear from you Bugsy - I absolutely love not 'working', mainly because of the extra flexibility and time. I am finding looking after three hard work though and with DH working extremely long hours and on the brink of a mid-life crisis, it's a daily challenge to hold it all together. I really miss Mumsnet but unfortunately the combination of a lack of time and the sheer size of the site these days means that I don't get much of a chance to post. I'm out of touch with what you are up to at the mo but hope things are going well for you.
Hi there, just an update on George and Trauma which I thought some of you might be interested in. Poor old George (now aged 16 months) fell head first off his wheeliebug the other day on to a stone floor and cut the inside of his mouth rather badly. By the afternoon it was still bleeding on and off and he was geting very distressed about it so we went down to the A&E at our local Hospital.
As we were admitted, we saw the same film crew who were there the night he was born and they told us they were filming series 2 of Trauma (it was the only day they were scheduled to be in paediatric A&E). They were delighted to see him as a strapping toddler and filmed the consultant examining him and him trying to destroy a rather large quantity of medical equipment. So it looks as though he will star in Series 2 as well. It was an amazing coincidence and I am already dreading what our contribution to Series 3 is likely to be!
George apparently has a torn frenelum (sp?) and whilst it could do with a stitch we are going to wait a few days to see if it heals as otherwise it would involve a general.
Oh so sorry about George and the wheeliebug, Bells - they are clearly almost as dangerous as pushalong labradors. Hope he and you get over the shock very soon.
But it is rather sweet and nice (given that his injuries are not serious overall) that he has a starring role in Trauma 2.
Ahem! I hope you were decently clad this time! And that dd does not feel George is muscling in on her favourite guys...
Series 3 could of course be ds1 or dd going off to medical school
