Thursday 8th July 2004 ( Day 2 )
We were moved over to Ward 10 during the morning.
Alex still needs an oxygen feed near him but has now
been taken off all the continuous monitors that were
needed in PICU. This made me a little nervous: my
little boy still looked gravely sick and needs all
the monitoring he can get. I steeled myself to go
with the choice of the doctors and consultants.
Tom and Alex normally go to Abacus nursery a couple
of days a week while Kirsten is at work. Abacus have
very kindly agreed to take Tom fulltime, 5
days-a-week. Joan and David are taking the dogs home
with them and Ian Walker is feeding Buffy the cat at
Tom is sleeping at Joan and Davids. It's a big change
for him, he's just as important as Alex but he will
have to do without his Mum and Dad for a while so we
can help Alex be well so they can fight again.
