A few weeks ago well, Tuesday I watched my youngest child close to death.
To the point he was in Resus in A and E at the hospital before being admitted to HDU.
The next week he was back at school (he went back last Monday but couldn’t play out or do PE for a week,)
He is now back to laughing, giggling, arguing and being stroppy with his brother.
Ok he is on some serious steroids and other medication at the moment. And like me will have to use a preventer inhaler possibly for the rest of his life.
But you know what I am so proud of him.
He took everything in his stride, He did what the doctors asked of him, ok he didn’t talk back to them and very rarely he even gave eye contact but we had no refusals of anything, we had no total meltdowns in the hospital. For a child who thrives off routine and anything else causes major problems, He was a star.
Yes I know he was too ill at first to object to anything but even the day they let him out and wanted to run a few last tests he was a star.
Today he is back at school and hopefully back to normal. he can go out for playtime, he can do PE and he is arguing with his brother………..
Normal services have been resumed!
