glowless Day 11 #lungsbehavingbadly
Just been told we're not going home yet. Bobbin is still requiring oxygen. Some tests are being done and we've been handed over to the respiratory team.

I'm sitting outside a café, stealing their wifi because I don't have any data. I'm so tired, and I'm feeling a bit sorry for myself if I'm honest. Then I feel like a wanker because the other kids in our room are not going home for a looooong time and I should just suck it up.
Have eaten my body weight in caramel slice every day since we got here and I'm mainlining caffeine. If it wasn't frowned upon I'd probably sneak some bourbon in for the nights.

glowless I'm officially ready for the funny farm. Spending my nights finding crude words in #7LittleWords. Not much sleep with all the buzzers and bells on the ward.

glowless The one where you have no idea of the day or date until your husband comes in with anniversary presents. I kinda have a good excuse for forgetting. They make Bobbin's room pretty #7years #notinTibet 3d

glowless {UPDATE}

Bobbin is still in hospital. This morning she finally turned the corner and glimpses of my little firecracker could be seen. She ate a little food, coloured in, sung, and eyed off the rails to swing on like she did when she was high on ventolin last week. She even got cranky! A sure fire sign she's on the mend! 😀 She slept three hours after, completely exhausted, but it was so beautiful to see my feisty, funny chicken that I cried.

She is not tolerating any of the room air tests and is still requiring O2 constantly. Every day since we've been here the doctors have said discharge will be "tomorrow maybe". This is night seven (what?!) and it's the first time it seems plausible.
Thanks for all your finger crossing, well wishes, presents, visits and support xo P.S. I'm getting better at braiding.

glowless To try and get Bobbin moving and playing instead of wanting to sleep all day, we got a portable O2 tank and headed to Megazone and the Starlight Room. She lasted about five minutes before wanting to go back to bed, but it's a start!

She's only a whiff of O2, still crossing fingers for home tmw

glowless A warm bath, fresh jimjams, and my very first (pathetic) attempt at a braid. Settling in for another night in PMH, fingers crossed we can go home in the morning.

Bobbin continues to treat it like a fun house for the most part; thinks the nurses are her audience. #sickbutnotsick

glowless High as a freakin' kite.

Bobbin is spending the night in the observation ward. She has a raging fever and terrible oxygen stats, but she is still happy as Larry. She is pinging off the walls and sliding down the bed, lapping up all the attention #happywheezer
