    Evening all.... as im sat here in hospital with nothing much to do, i would like to take this opertunity and introduce possibly the youngest addition to the forum.....

    My Daughter

    Lily-Mae aged 14hrs 45mins

    [​IMG]

    Shes got a fight ahead of her due to having to go through heart surgery over the next 48hrs, so i thought that i would take this opertunity and try and get her as much support as i can possibly get..... also i would like it to help bring mum's morale up.

    Sorry to sound like a right big sop, but this has really put life into a different peespective.......

    I hope everything goes well, I'm sure it will, these things are routine these days but they do seem to give your the gloomy edge to their explanations of the risks. This time next week it will all be forgotten and smiles all round :)

    Congratulations to you both, you big sop! Big Thumbs Up

    Congrats to you both & I wish your daughter all the best for the op, not that she will know what's going on....but the vigil you as parents will go through must be very hard. As Colin has already said, the surgeons of today class this op as routine but that does not stop us worrying.

    Thanks guys, like you say, it is a routine op but it really doesnt stop us worrying. Got baby in ICU, mum in HDU and me in a chair not allowed to do very much..... feeling helpless are not the words.

    Hi guys...

    So baby had her procedure yesterday morning to expand the pulmonary artery valve in her heart (sends blood to her lungs) and all went extremely well.
    She then got transferred to PICU where she started her recovery. By yesterday evening she was off her ventilator and off prostin (used to keep duct open between heart and lungs) and is now back on SCBU where she is breast feeding.
    So with a few days of feeds and a few more tests, she may be able to finally come home.

    We are absolutly over the moon, and can not think of a way to thank the surgeon enough... I mean how do you thank someone for saving your daughters life?

    Me, mum and baby are overwhelmed by the amount of support we have recieved both from friends and family, as well staff here and also you guys on here - which we would like to class you all as friends also.

    We cannot show how happy we are.

    Thankyou all again :)

    Steve, Tash and Lily-Mae :)

    Just knowing they saved her life will be enough. The simple words "thank you" also help show your appreciation.

    Glad it all went well
