… Well firstly I have to say, we are all running on empty here! We had been hoping to expose something very new next week on the 1st September, however that is going to be unfortunately delayed
Secondly, to all my lovely clients reading the blog, I am a wee bit behind, and thank you for your patience with me!
Where to start? Lets start by saying that here in Melbourne we are lucky to have the Childrens hospital. To all my photographer friends reading this blog, you may have read a similar (although with different circumstances) post on Rachel Devine’s Blog. On Sunday I was getting worried about Ashton’s raising temperature, which was not dropping from 39.8 – so I called the local doctor, however missed them by 10 minutes. Thankfully they have the local service and sent around a doctor to our home. She pulls out the usual checks and then informs us she was worried about his oxygen levels! I was a bit taken back as I’d rung her about his temperature. So we went to the Children’s hospital. at 9pm the Ventolin started, and continued every 20 minutes until 3am, when we were admitted into the short stay unit.
There it was dark (instead of the blazing fluro lights of emergency) and I got a “bed”. In the morning they informed me that Ash had a viral induced Asthma episode which may or not lead to continuous Asthma. That next day involved trying to stretch out the Ventolin to every 4 hours, when they would let us go home. Problem was, I wasn’t overly confident about going home!
The staff were fantastic, helpful, caring, understanding that I had no idea what I was doing and never once made me feel like I should understand the medical jargon that they had! Thankfully we were sent home later that day. with a follow up scheduled in 6 weeks.
So at home we were, and introduce feeling like there is a newborn in the house again! Every few hours we had to check in on our little monster and give him ventalin, which of course – he HATES!
Bring the end of the week and he is 100% on the weekend, and we are slowly recovering from the lack of sleep this week!
here’s a few iPhone photos I took in almost complete darkness!
