Hi Ian & Helen, This must have been a frantic and tiring week for you both! Sounds like Samuel is getting expert help. Today's update was great news - getting rid of the tubes. Give him a kiss from us and keep the updates coming.
Hi Ian, Helen and Samuel. Welcome to the world - we will follow your progress with interest - keep fighting little fella!!
Hi Helen (& Ian), I have read your pregnancy diary on babyworld over the past months and have enjoyed reading every entry. Your witty updates often made me laugh out loud. Congratulations on the birth of Samuel and I'm so sorry his first few days have not been exactly as you would have planned (that's kids for you,they always bring the unexpected). I hope Samuel makes good progress and that you are able to take him home soon. At least he's is in the best place at the moment and I'm sure the doctors will soon discover what's causing him to have these problems. Wishing you all the very best of luck and by the way he is one lovely looking little boy. Take care and fingers crossed that Samuel makes good progress.
Have been reading Samuel's diary - he sounds like he's been getting into the student frame of mind about 18 years too early - obviously a little genius in the making.
I live in the US. I have been reading Helen's pregnancy diary via Freeserve and now I am following Samuel's diary. I just wanted to say that my heart goes out to you and your families at this time. You three have been through so much in such a short space of time. As I am reading Samuel's diary I feel so happy for him to have such loving, caring and brave parents. These things happen for a reason and hopefully make you stronger. Each day brings something new and I just hope the Doctors find what’s wrong so you can start your life at home as a family. I am due to have my baby in January and I just hope that I am as brave and loving as you two seem. Lastly :- HAPPY FIRST WEEK BIRTHDAY TO SAMUEL!!!!
Samuel - I have been reading all about you on babyworld and now here. You are a beautiful, brave wee boy. I hope the doctors aren't bothering you too much and that you'll soon be home in your wonderful nursery. take care
Ian and Helen - I can only imagine how you must feel - desperately wanting Samuel home with you. Yours was the first diary I started reading on babyworld just a couple of months ago and it was upsetting to read of samuels problems. My thoughts and best wishes go out to you.
Hi Hels and Ian. So pleased Samuel is progressing well. I love reading his daily diary of how he is doing he is looking well too. Hope the results from the biopsy tell you what you need to know.
Dear Helen, I just wanted to email you to say that I hope everything will be ok with Samuel who is a really beautiful looking baby. I really enjoyed reading your diary on Babyworld and felt rather miffed when you had the baby because it meant that you wouldn't be writing any more! Anyway, your diary was fab and your little boy is too, and I really hope he's home with you guys soon. All the best.
