Thank you so much

To each and every one of you wonderful people that have emailed, messaged and sent cards, I am more than touched at your caring.

Baby Amy is holding her own. They have found out what is wrong with her, she has E Coli (we believe either from her mam not being treated with antibiotics against GSB (Group Strep B) even though the hosipital was aware that she is a carrier (she was treated before having her first child), and/or an infected belly button which was fobbed off for 6 weeks! The E Coli in infants causes Urinary Tract Infection (which Amy has), Sepsis (which they caught just in time we think although her blood is not reacting to the antibiotics as the doctors had hoped so she is now on supportive antibiotics to help the initial antibitoics). Thank God we insisted on seeing a doctor on Sunday night - I don't want to think what would have happened. A guardian angel sure was looking after our little princess.

She will be in hospital for a good few days yet, until the doctors get blood results that they are encouraged by. She will then be referred to the Freeman Hospital as they have discovered a heart murmur. She will also need kidney screening as a result of the urinary tract infection and is waiting for an appointment at yet another hospital as they are concerned about her hips. She has a long way to go yet poor little lamb, BUT!!! We got the most beautiful smile from her today - so she must be feeling a little better.

Here's a picture of Amy and Ben taken last week before she got sick.

Thank you again my friends, it means the world to me.
