I'm fine so far!!!

I had to wake up at FIVE o'clock this morning ... zzzzz ....




and before I'm even properly awake, here I am in front of the local childrens hospital - AT SIX IN THE MORNING ... SNORE !!! And on a VERY empty stomach ... gurgle ...


Hmm, well the beds certainly taste nice here

euw, maybe not, after all ....
OOh, these beds are mobile! Now I'm off to "imagerie interventionelle IRM"
(IRM is the French Word for 'RMI')
And whilst I go for a big Dodo (thats my word for 'sleep') Mama is going to sit here
for about half an hour

And she wasn't allowed back into my room until I was about to wake up ...
believe it or not, this is me just about to wake up .....

Sleeping beauty or WHAT???



And then I began to slowly wake up in my pushchair ...
I made Mama push me for two whole hours in my pushchair
around the entire
hospital, and we had a wonderful time discovering ward after ward after ward .... on six very very long floors ... ok, so I found it interesting. Mama was just happy that I was QUIET and happy .... its not easy coming out of that deep sleep you know!

Mumble mumble chew chew chew ...


MOVE IT MAMA ... MOVE IT!!!


No comments on the cellotape marks on my mouth ,ok? That comes from the thing they put on my mouth to keep me asleep ... no plagiarising ok??? I have my copyright on this look, ok?
I'm so hungry Mama I could EAT YOUR PHONE

Thank goodness my friend Dipsy is always there for comfort ....


What? The Doctor said they think my brain is a little smaller than my peers!!!
Did you not tell him that I have a TAILOR MADE brain?
the very enthusiastic IRM man told Mama lots of scary stories about my brain ... what a wally!!!
Thank Goodness my neurologist who has been following my development since the age of 8 months understands my brain a little better than the man who did the IRM - she tells me that she is going to study my IRM closely and get back to us after Spain ... but reminded us that Abigail is Abigail and that nothing has changed because of the IRM ... does that sound a tad philosophical or what?


Time to GO HOME!!
SPANISH BEACHES HERE I COME!!!
Nathan was SOOO pleased to see me back home ... he danced with me in the garden ...

and played hide and seek in my tiny tent ... just to be sure he couldn't lose sight of me ...
He IS a wonderfully protective brother ...

Mama don't you ever make me do that sleeping thing again ok?

Honey I'm not sure I can promise you that!! But we will know more when we get the results in September !!! SPAINISH BEACHES HERE COME THE BERNARD BUNCH WOOOOHHHOOOHHHOOOHOHOHOHOHOHOH

I have been praying for you sweet Abigail! Hoping for a positive outlook on the test results when you guys get settled in from the vacation in Spain!! Hope you have an AMAZING time!

Mummy and I have been thinking about you and hope you all have a fantastic holiday. Maybe we can finally get to meet when we come on our holiday to France in September? Oh and Mummy thinks she wouldn't be able to tell the difference between us when we are asleep.

I am so very glad that you did so very well for your "great sleep"! You must be a great princess to be able to have handled that so well, And how nice of Dipsy to have been there waiting with your mama. I think you looked a bit like "Sleeping Beauty"! Have a great holiday!

THAT is exactly why I have avoided an MRI with so much energy--I don't want to sit and listen to someone tell me all the things that are wrong with Charlie's brain. We've been there and now we're on to new things--life, here we come.

What a beautfiul family you have! I will keep Abigail in my prayers.
