Today we have been at the hospital again following last weeks appointment and things seem to be going in the right direction 🙂
The consultant was very pleased with H’s progress and agreed that they were now comfortable in him having his line taken out.
He will go back again in two week time for another review, just to make sure that he is still ok.
He will also have an x-ray in about 3 months time to make sure his bones are developing as they should be in his legs. These reviews are just a precaution as Hugo is their first case in someone so young so they want to keep a close eye on him.
Hugo will now start the process of his kidneys checks to make sure that they are functioning correctly, one of his kidney’s was slightly swollen which could be down to the huge quantities of anti b’s he has been having. So in 2-4 weeks time he will go into hospital and have a catheter fitted to flush coloured fluid through his system to see what happens. eeek. Fingers crossed its all ok.
Whatever happens though, today is a new start, Hugo is on the up, I am no longer scared of a little bit of plastic that has been attached to him for the last 7 weeks and we can start to live a “normal” life.
Welcome to the family H 🙂 xx
