It's been so long since I was here....

Where do I start?

Firstly I must say a huge thank you to one and all and of course the biggest thanks must go to Jo for keeping you updated while I was on the biggest roller coaster of my life.  What a week it has been....everything from total euphoria to terror and fear and no knowing what would be round the next corner at any minute.  I still feel a little shaky so please forgive me if I keep this short.

I just wanted to share a few collages of pictures I have taken to allow M to be in touch with her babies while she recovered.  Last night as most of you will know M was transferred back to a special quiet room in the Maternity hospital.  They are still monitoring her blood pressure closely as she is still on many oral medications to maintain her condition but it means she can have her wonderful fiance and two very special little people in the room with her.  They have put a bed for B in M's room so he can stay day and night and help M feed and change the babies and finally become the family that should have been a week ago.


And finally these are the latest set.  The two on the left are of M being back on Maternity and being able to have special times with her two babies so are really special ones for me.  Yes she still looks poorly but believe me when I say she looks soooooooo much better than she did.
 

Latest update is.....M has just rang me to say they are stopping the drug that they gave her for the fits today and moving her to the GP unit end of Maternity [where pretty normal things go on  :-) ].  She is being given a large side room with a bathroom by the nurses station so the midwives can keep a close eye on her but life can start to get more normal for them.  She will probably be in another week for her body to recover but who cares....it's just so good that we can now all look forward with a little more confidence to hope for better things to come. 

Once again....thank you all for the love, prayers and positive vibes that have got us all through this really awful time.

At times like this doesn't a boring mundane life seem very appealing?

Oh Annie - pass the tissues honey! Fabulous photos and I can't begin to say how pleased I am. Just going out to do a few backward somersaults round the garden to celebrate! Love and hugs, Di xxx

Elizabeth said...

Hi Annie - these beautiful photographs have moved me to tears ... so pleased to see M with the babies too and here that she is still improving daily. I can see there has been no shortage of visitors to cuddle these two wee cuties. Unlike Di, I will not be doing a few backward somersaults round the garden ... where does she get her energy from ... but I'm equally happy for you all. Elizabeth x

VintageVicki said...

Thank goodness for that - so glad that they are going to start to be able to return to normal and start family life properly. You poor thing what a horrid rollercoaster ride you & your family have all been through.

Helen said...

Wonderful to hear that the little family are all together with everything ahead of them. I agree, make sure you take some 'Annie' time too.

My great-nephews are doing well, although one is the wrong way up, so a c-section has been scheduled for 38 weeks (in 2 weeks time).

Well you certainly won’t forget little Lexi and Sam’s arrival in a hurry will you!
I’m so pleased that M is on the mend now and things are looking up for the new family at last.

Now then Annie, make sure you take some time out for yourself because they are going to need you even more once they all come home.

Lots of Love

You must all be so relieved. Thank you for sharing pictures of your beautiful family with us. We will continue to keep you all in our prayers xxx

Pearly Queen said...

Well thank goodness. You had me worried there for a time....

Lovely babies and I'm so glad M is doing OK now. All my love to you all.

Hazel (Didos) said...

Ah thinking of you all at this time, WOW those wee ones are sooo cute. My situation was similar when I had Tom so know how you are all feeling (although I didnt fit I was on a Labetalol infusion for a while). Also a huge pph didnt help!!!
Tom is now 7 and I cant believe how ill we were when he arrived and now how healthy we are. Took my body a long time to recover so tell M to rest rest rest (and accept all the help she is given from doting Grannies and Grandads!!!!)
Sending huge hugs to you all,

So very pleased to hear your good news Annie. I've been keeping up to date via Di's blog.

Wishing you and yours all the very best.

Hugs, Sandra x

Doone said...

we know that most people do well despite us, and also that life is surprisingly stubborn and resilient, and then again - there is a fragility to life that can take our breath away when our nearest and dearest become threatened,

you have indeed survived, as a family, and my my my you all look good together (as it should be)

Be kind to yourself and know that soon you too will need to recover...being the rock is a good thing but rocks need sustaining too...

Big hugs and thank you for letting us know that you are all doing well.
