OH NO!!!!

Hi all two diasters have struck in my household, firstly my laptop cables and plug ones have gone so now wainting for new power cables to arrive tomorrow so hoping that is the problem and i don't have to send my computer away as it will be gone for 7-10 days arghhhhh, so this morning quickly nipping on my friends one to catch up.

Now the bummer one adam has been diagnosed with the dreaded swine flu and sadly he is a very poorly boy ended up at hospital sat night with him as he was quite unresponsive and his temperature had spiked to 41.3oC so i knew this was not good. they reckon he has picked it up as his immune system low from his operation, and on phoning the school this morning he only 1st case confirmed has to be my boy to spread it round the school!!! so now looking after a poorly boy and trying to contain his pku levels as well so a bit of a stressed an non sleeping house hold oh the joys!!!! just got to get adam better for next week as its his birthday, and i so so do not want it so i'm drugging my self now with vitamins.

grrrrrr, i so hope to back tomorrow peeps as got some cardsto show and i want to be back in the world of blogging, facebook and normality as a computer is normality for me (HOW SAD)

happy birthday to me and update

Hi all yes its my birthday grand old age of 32 now!!! but to be honest its not really felt like my birthday at all. As u know adam was to go into hospital on thurs which he did and after his operation on friday he had a severe reaction to either the pre-med or general anesthetic or both so we only got out out this afternoon and only cos they are hoping that adam might drink a little better at home and if not then he has to go back in again tomorrow so i'm so hoping that he picks up pretty quick as the childrens hospital in glasgow (yorkhill) struggled with his dietary needs and obviously a stressful time for me and adam. so since home i've just been trying to make adam better.
so thankyou for messages on here and facebook folks so appreciated xx

P.S as i've not been about i'm going to extend my birthday candy till the end of the week as if i'm back in hossie tomorrow then i'm not about to post plus postal strikes etc, so folks get posting on blog candy and i might even be extra nice and show a piccie of the prize!!!!!

Thursday, 29 October 2009

thankyou also fro all your comments especailly the ones for the angelversary of george means a lot to me to have such caring bloggy friends. it was ok the day had a few tears when trying to do his lantern but poor little adam was a mess, he stood there sobbing saying he misses his brother and then that made me so much worse as well..lots of cuddles after and we were ok.

right mounds of washing and sorting but looking at all the challenges i must get my crafty hands back working so you never know i may be back later or defo tomorrow if i not shake me lol!!!

sad day today

Another sceduled post from me today, but felt like i needed to mention my little stillborn baby boy george that died when i gave birth to him. 4 years today he was born asleep and i shall never forget him he has such a special place in my heart, he was perfect when he was born but sadly his umbilical cord had strangled him which is why he died.

You can also see from my sidebar link that it is actually babyloss week as well and at 7pm tonight there is a wave of light all across the world for people to remember their babies that have died. so tonight a candle will be burning away for little georgie. also usually me and adam release a balloon for george with messages on but this year i have found a sky lantern that we shall be releasing tonight, should be a great effect seeing this go up into the sky for georgie to catch.
Love you all loads my bloggy friends take care Emma and adam xxx and an angel kiss from george x

where has it gone

Hi all i've lost my mojo, but hoping cos my last couple of days has been so mad that is the reason, well last night i had my first ever night shift so yesterday i tried desperatly to have a kip but nope wasn;t happening, so i did my shift and really enjoyed it learnt a lot more of the ward and as the only nursery nurse i was having a lot more responsibilty. So then i come home and pick up adam only to then have to dash up to glasgow to take him to yorkhill the childrens hospital for more dental work, to be then told that he will need a general anethestic to remove 3 teeth and put metal caps on the new adult teeth coming through, because of adams metabolic condition his teeth were always more prone to needing work, but to now know that i have to put him through surgery is horrid. Plus the recovery will be harder as he needs to eat certain amount of food everyday and supplements and his mouth so sore i've got a feeling i've got a huge battle on my hands, and then at the back of my head i'm constanyl worried about the brain damage that could occur. my poor boy. ON top of me being emotional wreck i've not caught up on any sleep today so on about 36hours no sleep arghhhhhh, sorry for a ramble and of course i will let u all know when his operation date comes through, i so hope i sleep and i can make some cards tomorrow to get back to normal, love and hugs and thanks for reading my ramble xxxx
