Early yesterday morning started like this. I was transporting Trigger and struggling with headcollar, dog leads and camera has not gone well in the past. Therefore, these pictures were taken on my phone. So much for Spring.
I don't know if you remember me talking about my friend who had her baby very prematurely back in October. He was very unwell and died after two weeks in ICU. I didn't mention his death at the time as it was their business and just too raw. He died from a Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia; something I had never heard of but which affects 1 in 2500 live births in the UK. Tomorrow we are going to a fundraising event for CDH UK, the charity that supports those affected and research into treatment and prevention. http://www.cdhuk.org.uk/ . From there we will be hotfooting it over to the Tourettes meeting - a busy day. OB's vocal ticks have been minimal for a while now which has been such a relief for him. After the heated meeting with the Paediatrician, we have now miraculously got the referral to Great Ormond Street Hospital we have been fighting for for over a year now. We've also heard from CAMHS regarding an official diagnosis of Aspergers after months of silence and what is quoted as an 18 month wait. Amazing what standing up to the system can achieve. Just a quick one today. Hail is crashing down everywhere and Trigger's hooves are due to be trimmed in an hour which promises to be an unpleasant experience for all. So until next time, another snowy view. Let's hope it's the last one until next winter.
