Nose feeding tube swapped for a tummy version

Lilian went into hospital to have her nose feeding tube swapped for a tummy version. Originally only a 24 hour visit. Lilian became extremely ill and spent  few days on intensive care.

Went into hospital and got ready for surgery in the morning. Lilian was a good girl and it was only mummy (who stayed overnight) that caused trouble. She thought the emergency cord in the toilet was the light switch.

Thursday: Lilian had surgery in the morning. She was moved to Intensive care afterwards and given morphine to settle.

Friday: Thursday evening / early Friday morning Lilian got a very high heart rate (218) and fever (39.4). They did loads of tests to find out the cause. Lilian impressed the doctors by showing how quick she was. All the doctors where gather around her bed and when they all looked she decided to pull out her nose tube in front of them. I am sure she had a little grin on her face when she did it

Saturday. Lilian was better and moved back to the ward.

Sunday: Lilian was giving the nurses a hard time, she kept pulling her canola out. Reason she got her hand wrapped.

Monday: We finally got her home
Lilian dressed up for her home coming party.. All cool in her sock trainers and her sticky toy on her head.

Sticky Fingers

It was Lilian's Grandpas (my Dad) 60th birthday party on Sunday. We all whisked him off to a restaurant in London called Sticky Fingers that is owned by the Rolling Stones bass player Bill Wyman. He and Grandma then went to see a show in the West End and stayed overnight in a very swanky hotel.

Lilian was a very good girl and enjoyed herself very much. She must be used to her parents record collection by now as the 60s rock and roll in the restaurant didn't phase her at all. We only had one costume change during the day too which was good going as I think Lilian is going through her Madonna phase and wants to wear at least 5 outfits a day at the moment.

Lilian thought Sticky Fingers was literal and proceeded to get very sticky fingers using the left overs of my chocolate brownie pudding.

Photo Session at the Hospital

We had an appointment with the dermatologist team at Kings, they needed to take a look at some small lumps on Lilian's scalp. They decided to take a sample when the g-tube surgery is performed and we will then find out what it is. Since no one has come across it before we where asked to go and see the medical photographer and get some photos taken. Mummy couldn't help sneaking in a few personal photos and we ending up getting professional photos of mummy and Grandma taken. Here'a couple of pics of Grandma.

Story Time

Lilian's danish cousins Anton and Tobias has given her some brilliant new baby touch books. Lilian loves them and she is getting really good at turning the pages and grabbing onto anything she can get hold off.
