Ohhhh, massive goose bumps down my arms.
So pleased for you all, i really, really am.
What a terrible time you've been through and what a great and well deserved place you are in now.
Love to you all, TC xx
So glad to hear that everything is Ok Pamina. DD had to spend the day at Kings yesterday having tests due to repeated urine infections. I found it very hard to cope with 1 day of being in a hospital with dd seeing her in discomfort. It must have been so awful for you to have such a prolonged period. All my best wishes to you and your family.
Poor poor you, your dd and the whole family. It sounds like you have had quite a horrendous time. Thnak goodness things have worked out and you are now all together at home.
My ds who is 2 has just been in hospital for several weeks with kidney problems too so I know what a stress it can put on the whole family. I just wanted to let you know that you would be amazed how quickly children (and even their parents!) bounce back from such experiences, both mentally and physically.
I hope you can take some time out now to pamper yourself as well
Oh Pamina3, what a terrible experience you have all had. I am so glad dd2 is well on the road to recovery. Your final thought are the same ones I had when DS2 had meningitis at 6 months and nearly died. You think at the time you will never get over it but you do. He is now a healthy 15 year old who gets his fair share of rows
My thoughts often drift back to the time he was in hospital and I am thankful that we were so lucky.
Expect to crash emotionally now that dd2 is improving. I know I did but that might have been due to the fact I got pregnant when I got home from hospital. My 'post meningitis bit of comfort baby' my mum called him
Thanks for posting that Pamina, what a cautionary and shocking tale. I for one had never heard of HUS, how frightening for all of you. Thank God your little dd is better at last, what a little fighter ( I remember holding her at that meetup in Sussex when she was a tiny baby ).
Hope you are ok and the pg is progressing well - look forward to seeing you in the near future.
Lots of love Cam xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
So glad to hear that dd2 is now well on the road to recivery and I sincerely hope that there will be no permanent repercussions. I also hope that you and dh get a chance to recover - it must have been an incredibly stressful time for you both (and dd1 I imagine) It makes a really pleasant change to hear such a positive story about the NHS! All the best
Pamina, I have been thinking about you all ever since I read the first thread that Marina posted. I'm so glad you are all getting back to normal now and that dd2 is getting better. Hope you and bump are also doing OK. All the best, Bagpuss.
