What should I pack for my baby while staying at the hospital? Depending on the hospital that you are delivering at most of the time the hospital will provide you and your baby with basic necessities. In fact, when I was pregnant with my first baby I had no idea what I needed to take with me so I was stuffing all of the basic items that I might need…Continue

A normal hospital stay for a c-section delivery is 3 to 4 days depending on your hospital’s policy, doctor, your health, and your babies health. Once the hospital discharges you, it is important that you have help once you get home so that you can rest as much as possible. I remember when they were getting ready to…Continue

It's been some time since I've written and that's been for several reasons. Firstly, Dylan had several set backs the past few weeks. She had seizures, then an asthma attack that put her back on the vent, then two infections in her trach tube and finally, her spasticity has gotten progressively worse each week. I was emotionally drained a bit more each week and got to my lowest point during Week 13 where I just wasn't sure if I would be able to take anymore setbacks. But as usual, God was…Continue

Hello MBC'ers! My daughter, Dylan, suffered a severe asthma attack and seizures this Mother's Day (May 13th). She was without oxygen for quite some time and now is battling brain damage. The focus of my blog is now on the next leg of our journey....
These last few weeks have been rough. Other words that come to mind to describe it are shitty, unbearable, exhausting and nerve-racking. Dylan has been dealing with seizures and brainstorming (which means she had…Continue

The time has come for another (better) look at Baby Pregnantcitygirl. By another look I mean a 3d/4d scan. For those of you not in the know these are the latest in technological advance in the baby scan world; the Rolls Royce of scans! You can have them done anywhere from 25 weeks onwards, the later in the pregnancy the better the result. We have had a few 3d scans done already, early on at the CRGH and one that I mentioned in a previous post privately at the Royal Free (we are so dying to…Continue

My focus these days, purely involved what’s going in my hospital bag, and that’s it. With only 3 weeks until my expected due date, I think my timing is quite perfect! I’m a little bit crazy when it comes to packing for events and trips and…Continue

You know, the times where you feel like you messed up, or forgot something really important about your child or their schedule?
I just got a call from the Children's Hospital reminding me and giving me instructions for Levi's MRI appointment on Monday. Come again? MRI? Monday? Uh, okay...if you say so...wait, why wasn't I notified of this earlier?
Apparently I was notified, back in January. Just a few days after his two week post-op appointment. At least that's what…

I hear myself
Gabby used to be a very sweet, loving and affectionate child. She let me feed her as a toddler probably longer than I should have, she always liked to sleep in my bed or sit in my lap to watch a movie. Giving me kisses and rubbing noses was a regular in…Continue
