Thursday 30th June- Happy Anniversary
It's all been good news here this week. Max is responding to the new treatment and he hasn't had a blood transfusion since Saturday! He isn't attached to an IV pole anymore so I can finally take him for little walks around the hospital. The other day my sister bought in a stroller, we rigged up his IV and took him downstairs to the park. It was so amazing to take him outside. I'm not sure he appreciated the moment but I sure did. Yesterday his blood pressure was NORMAL after weeks of being obscenely high. It's like he's decided that he's had enough and wants to go home.
I love that Max gives hope to other people. There's another mummy here who can't believe how sick he was when I showed her a photo of him in ICU. Now he's babbling, laughing, grinning and playing like a 'normal baby'. All things that I was so scared I wouldn't see again. Fingers crossed that the news stays positive.
