Well done pig, good killing

BigPigLittlePig Wed 18-Jun-14 11:53:04

Oh bloody hell, was in such a rush to kill the thread hat I had a typo.


BigPigLittlePig Wed 18-Jun-14 11:53:38

I think it was the rake that did it in the end, Lily.

Thanks Stunt good luck with the challenge today. Confusingly J is fine with soy leceithins in most things but Pom bears and Sainsburys cheap Pom Bear copies, always, always give us a bad night with 2+ wakings and him being very wired when trying to put him down for the night. We've tried over a dozen times now and without fail they set him off. No other soy leceithins do - I just don't understand it? It's put me off trying him on full on soy milk etc. He can handle soy flour in stuff nay bother. Good luck. Trying to cater for multiple intolerances must be a PITA xxx

Ooh a shiny new thread!! Haven't been on the threads for blimmin' ages (FB loads though!) but was just perusing MN and saw you guys here so thought I'd try again at keeping up.

How is life with the Pox Zamboni? Since I've been tying O's hair into bunches the last week I've noticed she has quite a few scars on her scalp from having CP a couple of months ago. The only visible ones I thought she had were just above her right eyebrow along with a couple on her back where she had large spots. Hopefully they'll fade with time though.

BigPigLittlePig Wed 18-Jun-14 12:19:42

Stunt it is a nightmare - F has the same intolerances. If you wanted some ideas of what we do then pm me and am more than happy to wing some suggestions your way. Is this for your visit to bristol?

Hello new thread grin great killing btw.

StuntNun Wed 18-Jun-14 12:41:13

Thanks BigPig, it's really eating out where it becomes a nuisance. Bristol is just me, it's my uncle's funeral on Tuesday so I'm flying to Manchester on Monday to drive my mum, dad and brother down. It'll be my first time away from J for any length of time. DH is taking a couple of days off to look after the three boys. He thinks it's going to be easy <evil laugh>.

Hahahahaha stunt - goooood luck to him! He'll be knackered by the end!

We haven't eaten out wih F, ever sad Although I think yw said Pizza express have a good allergy menu so we might venture there for my birthday later this year. When I was still feeding F, on the rare occasion we ate out during the day, things like jacket potatoes were a safe option - if a little dull. We just end up taking her picnic now, although she does enjoy having fruit salad for pudding (she is fruit mad).

Hi all sorry again for posting and running for an update. Too tired to read old thread.

Still in ICU. He's still on high flow O2 but at roughly the same amount I o2 you would be breathing by yourself. Tomorrow they will slowly wean him off that. It looks like we will have one more night in ICU and 1 night on ward be ore we can go home. However he is very, very tired and unable to sleep. He battled sedation again tonight for hours my poor baby. His level of tiredness is what is concerning them now.

We met the respiratory team today too. R has atypical asthma apparently and is doubly unusual for responding to ventolin (I think - I can't remember why it's double unusual but it is confused). We will keep going with asthma plan but sadly there is little else we can do for him.

I'll let you know how we go tomorrow. Thanks again for your support and messages. X

MissL it's ok. DD is wise enough to milk it but has been good and very understanding but it's started to really itch and annoy her. Lots of spots in her hairline and in her ears and between her toes! S still doesn't have a mark on him so far.

Stunt - sorry I promised suggestions for hotels and have then been so busy I forgot to do anything for you. Sorry. Reckon the IBIS is worth investigating as v similar to Premier Inn which you were looking at.

Good thread killing Lily and BP. Hi-5 BP for west country themed endings!!

Zamboni Wed 18-Jun-14 16:48:38

Digger thanks

Passmethecrisps Wed 18-Jun-14 20:12:43

Evening gorgeous ladies!

digger I have been reading your updates and I am very sorry you are having such an awful time. As an asthmatic but very mild I can only imagine the distress you are all feeling. Keep updating please as I am sure we are all thinking of you.

I am incredibly impressed with little bear's language skillz yw. Now that we have battled meemee again p has taken off again but I do worry slightly that she has taken longer than she might naturally have done.

You brought back lovely memories wanda with your pottering. We had an allotment for many years and had many happy times. One of my favourite memories was being let into the allotment of one of the old hands (something special in itself) to pick red and black currants. I sat there in the light summer rain thinking only about the berries. It is a rare event when my head contains only one thought but there it was and it was joyous. I remember lifting my head and realising the rain had stopped and the sun was shining. Just beautiful. Your very much deserve your berry moment.

I am off for a three day conference tomorrow! To stunt's alma mater to be wined and dined. It is full residential and there is a wine tasting night tomorrow. I am actually having a clothing dilemma. Lectures and speeches tomorrow followed by a dinner. Friday is visiting schools within the uni followed by dinner. Saturday is lectures then offsky. Should I go casual or smart-casual? What about dinner wear? I am excited about two whole nights alway but I am already nervous about missing p.

PurplePidjin Wed 18-Jun-14 20:45:30

thanks Digger

Am pissed off with myself. Someone force feed me scrambled egg and spinach next time the vampires are in town please angrysad

Wandathewindfairy Wed 18-Jun-14 21:45:57


Right now for some reason scrambled eggs and spinach sounds yum.

Not pregnant.

Just tired out!

Pikz Wed 18-Jun-14 22:43:13

The time has come to say "Goodnight"
To say "Sleep tight" 'til the morning light
Oh, the time has come to say "Goodnight"
It's the end of a lovely day

We've had so much fun today
Tomorrow's just a dream away
And now it's time to say "Goodnight"
At the end of a lovely day

Morning we are going to the ward today once a bed is free. He was calling for me during rounds and when I got back he started crying but wouldn't let me pick him up. I picked him up anyway and now hes very worried I'll put him down again.

My poor wee sausage. He's back to 2 hourly ventalin but I don't really know why. I think it's to get him better as he is wheezy at 4 hrs.

Anyway he's asleep now, we're cuddling. Will keep updating.

ValiumQueen Thu 19-Jun-14 06:24:38

Digger that sounds utterly horrid. Big hugs.
