Sunday eve: mummy and daddy feeling relaxed after a fantastic weekend and the best sleep in over a year.
Sunday night: both Rory and Austin were unsettled and daddy hardly slept for caring for Rory.
Monday morning: daddy went to work, mummy was concerned with rorys breathing, video’d him, sent it daddy, mummy and daddy agree that it’s a hospital job, mummy can’t face it on her own again (she finds breathing related emergencies hard since his windpipe collapsed and Rory was in resus with mummy on her own) daddy comes home. Mummy and daddy take Rory to A&E at the childrens. Aunty Charlotte stays home with Austin. Nannie collects Beau Jangles.
Monday afternoon: Rory needs oxygen, awaiting bed. Chest X-Ray taken, it looked good, no signs of previous collapse or pneumonia, Drs convinced it’s a viral infection, support with oxygen.
Monday evening: bed found on M1. Unsettled night. Mummy did Austins tea, bath and bed routine then came through. Aunty Nat stayed home with Austin until mummy got home. Beau had a fit whilst at nannies 😢 mummy spent most of the night up with her. Daddy slept (or rather didn’t sleep) on a chair by rorys bed.
Tuesday morning: the respiratory consultant spoke to daddy, his kidney related tests had come back; too much protein in urine and high blood pressure evident. The dr on her rounds was happy to trust daddy’s instincts and wean off oxygen. The Drs know mummy and daddy well and know they are sensible and knowledgeable about Rory. Daddy said that if he can live without oxygen then we will manage his respiratory distress at home.
The dr agreed to let rory home providing mummy and daddy monitor his breathing closely and bring him back for oxygen if he gets tired again.
Rory has 2 different strong antibiotics over the next month.
Our favourite Drs who cared for us at Jessops and now work at Sheffield came to visit Rory and our favourite nurses from S1 came to say hi.
Eventually mummy and Austin came and we all went home.
Thank you to our friends and family again for slipping back into old routine of dog walking, Austin sitting etc.
