Just got email agreeing I can reduce my hours until am ready to increase them up to original level. I'm sooooo happy! Means I can work without ds going to nursery until he's older.

Hunker... Look here...

dinny Tue 09-Aug-05 23:23:47

bumped AGAIN, Hunker

LOL! Thanks, Dinny!

REALLY pleased - fantastic news! Had seen you were on the rota for the new hours later on this week (is that right - if it's not, it might be next week as I was looking re my hours and get easily confused!) - so I had wondered.

Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant! Which days will you be working then? Will I see you?!

dinny Tue 09-Aug-05 23:27:07

ooh, am I? think will start this i'll only see you on Sunday, I think??

hunkermunker Tue 09-Aug-05 23:30:17

Yes, Sundays. Think I'll stay doing Sundays till I go on mat leave - am sure they won't say no to that! Can't face leaving DS in a nursery.

He had his scan yesterday - was horrible But they think he's OK - yay!

dinny Tue 09-Aug-05 23:32:02

Excellent news. Was it terrible? Did you hold him or did dh?

We aren't popular on Xmas thread...

MrsGordonRamsay Tue 09-Aug-05 23:33:39

YOu should try being on the C4, born to be different thread

dinny Tue 09-Aug-05 23:34:03

oh no, that's not kicking off, is it, MGR?

MrsGordonRamsay Tue 09-Aug-05 23:38:28

It did, and I appear to have been Mrs Evil, only had two opinions, but that was enough

dinny Tue 09-Aug-05 23:38:55

oh dear - will go and read it

hunkermunker Tue 09-Aug-05 23:39:12

I held him while they put the line in on the children's ward (went into his hand, then his elbow as couldn't get it into his hand), then DH held him while he had the radioactive dye injected - I couldn't cos of the baby. I stood outside the room and cried instead - my brave boy!

Couldn't cuddle him all day Would rather have given birth to him again, I think


MrsGordonRamsay Tue 09-Aug-05 23:40:34


WTF have I missed ??

Is X Ok ??

dinny Tue 09-Aug-05 23:42:41

oh, horrific. what a brave boy. so did they get line in on 2nd attempt?

MrsGordonRamsay Tue 09-Aug-05 23:43:42


don't post on C4 it has gone nicely quiet.

hunkermunker Tue 09-Aug-05 23:46:06

He had a kidney scan - DMSA examination - because he's had one definite and one suspected but probably UTI. He's fine, just was v confused yesterday. Kept reaching out to whichever parent wasn't holding him while the nurses did horrible things to him

And they splinted his elbow so he couldn't disturb the line on the way up to nuclear medicine - and it meant he couldn't suck his fingers, so he was really upset

MrsGordonRamsay Tue 09-Aug-05 23:48:10

Aw the poor baba boy

(((((((((((((((((BIG HUGS))))))))))))))))

dinny Tue 09-Aug-05 23:48:58

oh, and not even be able to comfort himself....

still am sure it's all forgotten now. xxxx

hunkermunker Tue 09-Aug-05 23:51:14

Did make me snurk a bit though when they said he could have his bottle of milk while he was being scanned... I felt like saying, "Do you know who I am?! I'm Hunkermunker and my boy drinks from my breasts, as nature intended!"

I didn't though, I'm not a total loony

It was hard - would not like to do that again. Am in awe of people who have to get used to children's wards

dinny Tue 09-Aug-05 23:52:51

PMSL, wish you'd say it, you loon!

Makes you feel so lucky to be able to go home, doesn't it?

hunkermunker Tue 09-Aug-05 23:54:34

I did say that it wouldn't really be practical as he didn't have a bottle, I breastfed him - I do make a point of mentioning this to health professionals where possible (probably verge on loon often, but who cares?!).
