Just a quick update - firstly, thank you everyone for all your good wishes, good vibes and prayers.
Eleanor has been gradually improving over the weekend and is a bit better again this morning. They'vetaken her out of the CPAP and she is only on nasal oxygen now. And sheis tolerating small feeds every two hours - they tried her with a gastric tube yesterday but after she pulled it out twice they gave up and started giving her small bottles.
Her temperature has beenmuch reduced since last night. So, I think we're over the hump. Theysay that they won't let her come home until she has been breathingnormal air for at least twenty four hours and that they like parents tobe able to be around for most of that final period. They are so tinyand things change with them so quickly ... I am terrified about ithappening again, which I suppose is normal. I've just spoken to thehealth visitor who is coming for a council of war later in the week.
B's taken Leo up to the hospital again now and I'm getting some R&R - yesterday this included helping a friend despatch ducks and today it is going to involve cleaning out the chickens and making lentil and garlic soup.
For today, that is all.
