How very pleased and happy can you imagine I am feeling as I write this to let you know that at long last little Isobel has been taken home to live with her family.
There are going to be some issues in her life and complications because of the DiGeorge Syndrome that she has but they will be bridges to cross as they occur over the years as well as probably having more heart surgery as she outgrows the artificial things they have used in her. The doctors are happy that she does actually have some albeit small immune system and the thyroid may not be as much of a concern as originally thought.
My little grandaughter is astounding in my eyes as are the many surgeons and medical staff that helped her survive these last five weeks since her fraught birth on the 9th September 2010.
Here are a couple of pics and a recap of events……..
and the last couple of days………..
My first cuddle.
My youngest daughter Karen with her Owen and Ava.
Evie and Josh with sister Isobel
And the best till last……………….Isobel and mum Clare on her way home from the hospital this morning Saturday the 16th of October 2010
I really do thank each and every one of you for your positivity and well wishes. It has meant so much to me to be bolstered and lifted from the dismal days of worry lately. Here is hoping the next chapter is all smiles and laughter.
Thankyou from the bottom of my heart x x x
