A few Things......

Those more observant of you may have noticed I have been pretty quiet.
Well I have had a very sick son.
He has Osteomylitis and was admitted to hospital for a week a couple of weeks ago.
He could have lost his toe if not his foot if I hadn't kept pushing that something wasn't right about his "infected toe".  After the third visit to our local practice we finally had some luck as the doctor we got was AMAZING!  She got us booked into the hospital for an appointment with the orthopaedic clinic.
He booked an MRI for a few days later with a follow up at the hospital a day later.
When we arrived at the hospital following the MRI we arrived at clinic to find the specialist waiting for us and my son was rushed straight into the children's ward.
He was kept in for a week on iv antibiotics.
We are now home and he has a picc line and elastomerics and we are under hospital in the home care for the next 5 weeks.
It has been pretty scary!

Here are some pics from the time in hospital....

Aww babes, we've been thinking of you and Georgie has even written a little note for Angus, which I must get in the post! I hope he's well on the mend now and good on you for keeping at them, because Osteomyelitis is no small thing! Well done hun, and you deserve a very big drink after all the trauma of that! Sending love and hugs to you all, Wends xoxo
