He is holding on.

After a most horrendous thursday and friday morning, he has kicked in again. Urine passing and a little poop, stable today. He has processed some food in the last 24 hours, which is just wonderful.

Eye specialist will come in, they may operate on Benjamin today to prevent him going blind, more news on that later today. Still being given Iodrops (forgive spelling/mispronunciation), a form of adrenalin to keep him alive and functioning), his ventilator is also on giving him around 30% oxygen.

He is fighting so hard for life, it just reinforces the hope within us. The doctors and nurses have been amazing, talk to them three times a day

Our hope our little man pulls through, we just don't know, it changes from one day to the next.

Sam and I are finally together, as we have been going through this while Sam is traveling around on business. Makes it so much easier to process this together, finally be able to be by Ben side in six days.

Need him to continue to be stable and then recover and hopefully come Home with us!

Thanks for all your love and wishes

  1. Come on ben, stay with us. You are such a little fighter, such a good darling baby, you are so loved. Sam, Phil, i wish I could be there to hug you and make you cups of tea. Phil, I would even bring over a range hood so you can peel the sticky coating off it to wile away the time until Ben is well and with you both.
