 D often crawls into our bed at about 3am, falls asleep and takes over the bed.

 Well 2 nights ago she was already there asleep at midnight ! when we went to bed.

J, and I were talking about the games D was playing that day, especially the one where D pretends to be a sheep, who gets cold after being sheared, and goes and steals the wool back off of the farmer, and sticks it back on with tape….  ( yes my daughter has a strong imagination ! )

Half way through us talking about this …  D rolls over to J, and says and says ” I was …….  er sheep……    er   stick ….   wool on…… tape ”  then rolls over to me and continues to sleep !!  the kinda thing you say when you are drunk…..   well..  maybe that’s just me ?

  I tell you, D never misses a thing….

Just heard that the heart consultant has agreed to see D in May !!

 This a major deal, and at least it isn’t a year like he first said !


So the weekend turned out to be quite better than expected.bonding time for me and D.

Me and D, went to the park after and fed the ducks, and did the swings, though D was quite dismayed by the fact that the roundabout had been removed !!

The we drove over to ASDA ( other supermarkets are available ) and got some flowers for tomorrow, and food, we then came back and planted the sun flower seeds,

Today was filled mainly by guitar hero and trying to sort out our attic, which uncovered quite a few memories, and also quite a bit of junk, which needed binning, so we can put more junk in the attic. !!  it’s kinda like a big filing system up there !

currently listening to Ashes to Ashes theme album.

 


 

 I have some time with D this weekend.

 If the weather is good, hopefully we shall go to the country park

then we have sunflowers to plant. There is nothing like trying to get children into gardening, also D is very clingy to J. Hopefully we can start to break this down by having some quality time with her.

 Then soon we are off to Sheffield to see the family, to let my family have some time with D. not sure if my sisters plan of going to the chinese supermarket on the tram will come off though, I think D has plans of seeing my sisters pet cat, Morris……   Goodness help Morris !

Currently listening to Alter Bridge.


 

 Sorry for not responding sooner… i’ll keep this brief because we haven’t decided what to do yet, and until then I won’t say too much.

 It was a, …..   strange …  check up to say the least.

 The usual ECG , which we had a job to quiten D down, bless her she cried, ( only natural when your getting plastered in wires . )

 The the consultant scanned her for with a ultrasaound for 10 minutes,

 sat down

then said ” OH I was supposed to look at the other side ”

” eerr, I’ll see D in a years time, she wouldn’t let me see all the right areas. ”

( I’m not being funny here, D didn’t not move !!!!  she was too interested watching her heart on the monitor !!! )

We are currently awaiting the confirmation letter of the scan, to see how to proceed with this very unsatisfactory outcome to the scan.


 

 D, has her heart appointment on Thursday,  not life threatning, but it may need sorting.

If you can spare us a thought on Thursday it would be appreciated,

 Basically there is 2 outcomes.

1) Full discharge.

2) Back to Bristol and have the procedure done again.

 It is a ….  worrying time, we thought we were over it, then at the check up they added a year to the final discharge date to be sure. You think a year is a huge time away, but it is amazing how soon it  comes around again.

Surgery is worrying when it is yourself having it, but when your child has to have it, it suddenly blows things out of proportion, remembering the operation nearly 3 yrs ago is bad, but now D being nearly 4 she will be fully aware of what is happening, which makes it harder for us parents……. The worst part was remembering the surgeon saying “Do you want to kiss D good-bye?? “……..   I was furious inside, it wasn’t GOOD-BYE..  only … good-night.for couple of hours.  I keep saying it but before you have children, you can’t put yourself in the shoes of someone with children ( I do not try to make myself out to be something special saying that…. ) but it is true, things change. The amount of love you have for a child is incredible, and undescribable.  and naturally you don’t want any harm to come to them, you want to shield them from harm.

So if you can spare us a thought on Thursday it would be apprecriated.


Oh My,

Last week has been hectic with work, and trying to get broadband finally into our home, ( we must be the last people in the world to still have dial up !!! )Hopefully this will be sorted next week.

So Christmas was a good break , though I had a flu like virus for a week, so it was ovan chips on Christmas Day for me !! Couldn’t get home to Sheffield due to illness, and also the snow !

 D had a great time at Xmas, and aslo the snow, stared in her chapel xmas play, but had to have her MMR booster jabs yesterday , which went surprisingly well.

 We are debating to give D the swine flu jab, as though it is kicking off again, there seem to be many problems with the vaccine, and its lack of test history, it is one to ponder….   and D has her final heart check at the end of the month, where she either gets discharged, or will have to have the procedure again !! just to add to the stress levels !

 This weekend, I will (hopefully) get home for the weekend to see the family, help my sister in her renovated – ing house, and also get to see Sheffield Wednesday play Charlton.

 busy, busy.
