One step back

Its been a tough day so I won’t be long. Albie’s shunt is settling in well and his oxygen levels are looking really good which is great.  But, his bowel wall has been starved of oxygen and part of it has died. Poor Albie is in a bit of a miserable state as a result passing lots of blood but they hope it will regenerate with plenty of rest. So he is dosed up again on morphine, nil by mouth still and on five different antibiotics so it doesn’t turn nasty. Poor wee boy. He will be in Intensive Care for quite a while longer yet. We are inspired by Albie who continues to fight it all fiercely though -he has so much chutzpah this one!  Please continue to keep us in your thoughts and prayers
