Alan's Birthday

Gosh, i can hardly believe Alan is 7 today, this time 7years ago i was being prepared for surgery for a c-section, he was born at 10.15 in the morning. 7 years its so hard to believe! We have had some rough times with his health and we have had some bad times dealing with his illness but i wouldn't change him for a minute.He is a special, loving and kind boy and we are lucky to have him in our lives.We are having some people over later so i will update with some pictures later on.

Infection :(

We got a call from the hospital yesterday afternoon, to say Alan is growing haemophilis influenza bug again, they have started him on 2 weeks worth of augmentin antibiotic. He has had a runny nose and a cough for weeks and i had handed in sputum after sputum but nothing showed up in the last 2 then yesterday the nurse says its a heavy growth! I was really hoping to get through his birthday without this but we will manage, he has to be re swabbed the day after his birthday.

I was so down last night with this news. The doctor was say how good a job i was doing keeping him well, then this! But today I'm feeling stronger and know i do do a good job with him, this is something out with my control.

Life back at school

Alan has really settled back into life at school, he was having real trouble with going to the toilet and Vikki from postpals had suggested to me to ask the school about him using the teachers toilets so i did, the headmaster said to me he hadn't thought of it before but there was a disabled toilet that he could use, oh my what a different boy coming out of school, he has not been desperate for the toilet all week and what a difference this has made, So Vikki if u are reading this a huge almighty thank u for your suggestion.
Alan has also been doing a topic at school on Castles, oh it really has captured his imagination, we already take him and Amy to the castles in Scotland to explore and he is really interested in them, but at school they are learning about knights and battles around castles and life in the days of old. Every night he has his drawing pad out drawing castles and knights and writing stories about them, he also had a shoe box and made a castle out of it with Amy, he had it all glittery it was fab.
Its such a joy to see him so happy and enjoying school.He is looking forward to his birthday he is 7 on the 24th i can hardly believe he is 7 already where does the time go?

Just a note to say I'm thinking of all the people lost in the 9/11 atrocity's they will never be forgotten, it makes you realise how important family are and how short life can be .
