At Last...

Well a lot has happened this week....

Little scrapper's hernia seemed to be going OK and wasn't getting any worse, but suddenly on saturday night she developed a matching second one on the other side....

Soooo...we then start chasing our urgent referral (which still hasn't come through after 1 1/2 weeks!!!) and finally, through the kindness of a medical sec who bumps us up the list, get seen yesterday by a paediatric surgeon.

He agrees something needs doing sooner rather than later, but as she's still tiny, we've been referred to Great Ormond Street where she will have both operated on. We go in on Monday, op is on tuesday adn then home wednesday all being well....

I'm feeling so many things at the moment: relieved to be getting it sorted finally (and in the best children's hospital in the world at that, which does set my mind at rest a lot) but I also know it's going to be horrible to have to go through it, and see her have a general anaesthetic and have to cope with the aftermath of it all....

I'm just clinging to the fact that everyone says it's a very straightforward op, which when it's all done, will leave her much happier.

I just wish it would hurry up.... :unsure:
