There is nothing quite like a hospital stay to make you realise how special every single day is. As stressful as it was spending a few weeks on the ward, we knew what was wrong and were busy fixing it. Other children came in with serious problems, lifelong problems and unknown problems. We never know what is right around the corner. Every single day together is a blessing and I am determined to make the most of this summer as we were unsure whether we would see any of it at all.Read more ⇨
Every single day is an opportunity to play, to learn and to spend time together. We are lucky enough to live within walking distance of shops, parks and beaches and this summer we will be there. When Archie and I had a few hours off from the hospital, we went for walks along the beach, saw friends and went swimming and kayaking in the sea ( It may have been more of a paddle for Archie).
Today, I bought a huge milkshake with all the trimmings and Dylan and I tucked in together, two straws, two scoops. Somehow we had never yet done this and we giggled as we licked the whipped cream and slurped up the dreggs. Tomorrow, who knows! Every single day is a blessing though and after weeks cooped up in a cubicle, I can't wait for our adventures.
Now we are home, we will not let Dylan's bad leg stop us from getting out and having fun. It may be a little while before he walks but there is so much you can do sitting and I am determined to do something different and something new every single day, even if it is only something little.
Every single day is precious so here is to the start of a fun filled summer!
