Grab a cuppa and some biccys. were finally back!!

Hello my lovelies how are you? I hope you all had a great Xmas and new year. Ours was quite Xmas day. Our first one at home by ourselves, it was lovely. We were all spoilt ( no stitchey stuff though )and I ate way too much! Boxing Day we went round my nanas for cold meat and mash which is one of my favourite meals! Yum yum! New Year’s Day we went round to my granddads for party games which was great fun as most of the family turnt up. Im sorry for not updating sooner but i have been drained 3 Days in hospital was a killer.

Connors health took a turn for the worse and after a quick visit to the doctor we ended up at the hospital. He couldn’t sit up by himself and was very sleepy. His tonsils were so swollen that he couldn’t swallow liquids or eat.  After while he was put on a drip as he was dehydrated after 6hours sleep during the day he really perked up. So we went home with an appointment the next morning to see the ENT specialist. Well we went back up the next morning and had been given the wrong time so we ended up missing him. We stayed in that day so they could keep an eye on Connor and do a sleep study that night. His sleep study showed that he does stop breathing in his sleep. By this time his tonsils was not swollen. We saw the ENT in the morning and his tonsils are naturally large. We are waiting for an appointment with a specialist anaesthetist as his so tiny, and then he will have to have an operation to remove his tonsils, ananiods, and grommets. Should be sometime in the next 2 months as it’s no longer an emergency. Then he will have another sleep study to check his breathing has improved. The ENT also reckons that his sleep apnea is why his not growing. The growth chemicals are released in deep sleep but because he stops breathing it means that the chemicals are not being released. So once we have his apnea sorted he should start growing. Maybe for the first time in almost 2 years! He still wears 12-18 months which is terrible as he will be 4 this year!
Perky Connor
I managed a little bit of stitching but not a lot as lights go out at 9 for parents too L mainly white on a snowman one but not worth showing a photo. I have kept up to date on all your blogs and your all doing so well I can’t believe how many finishes there has been already ....so come-on fess up ...what’s your secret? I plan on stitching tonight but I’m not rushing to finish the “A new baby” pillow just yet. I didn’t manage it before Xmas so will properly keep it till her first birthday which gives me 7-8 months to get it done. Ill properly leave it till last minute though. I would like to say a big THANK YOU!!! To Mouse after the plea for help in my last post she emailed me detailed directions and now it makes complete sense to me! Thank you! You are a star!
