Life is a Rollercoaster

... isn't it though! So much has happened since last I posted, well not so much, just one major thing really.

My little girl has been in hospital since last Sunday with pneumonia. I thought it was a bug as she has a temperature and was constantly sick. When we brought her to the doc on sunday he thought it was appendicitis, so straight to the hospital. The poor babes was really out of it with a fever so as soon as they put her on a drip I felt more relaxed. The blood tests showed she had an infection but they couldn't tell where... She had no cough or sniffles so it was a huge surprise when after the chest x-ray the docs said it was pneumonia.

Two days after the anti-b's and about 13 hours straight sleep, she awoke nearly back to herself (what a relief!). She came out today, yipee!!! I'm looking forward to sleeping in my own bed tonight with my little girl. As alot of you probably know its impossible to sleep on the ward with beeps going off through our the night and the pull out bed isn't the most comfortable! Anyways, she was let out today, which was really a good thing as last night she woke up and asked me to sneak her out (LOL).

There was very little to do in hospital except wait, read and watch TV, but one of the days I brought my sketch book. I haven't sketched in aaaaaages so they are a little rough and Shona decided they need a little work and added her own little touches :-)
