It is so hard to believe that almost a year ago, I wrote this post. A year ago, our illness journey with our little EN had just begun. After a long holiday in a London Winter, our baby girl started to get sick. A stuffy nose, turned into a cold and flu which turned into tonsillitis brought on by an immune deficiency. What a journey it has been – through tears, prayers, injections and sleepless nights – dare I say that it is over.
The week following the op wasn’t as bad as most made it out to be. She ate and slept and was her usual self. But on day 10, she developed a throat infection in the fresh wound, she stopped eating and drinking and was terribly miserable – and due to her dehydration, we were admitted into hospital over night. 24 hours of an IV drip of fluids and antibiotics to fight the infection, we were home again and on the final road to recovery.
We are beyond delighted to report that little EN has been home, happy and healthy and free of any medication, IV drips and antibiotics for 2,5 months. She has started talking, has started school (which is full of germs) and she has spent the Summer outside in the sunshine and playing with her friends – being the toddler she is now allowed to be.
