Home at last

My tenth grandchild arrived a couple of weeks ago and it has been a roller-coaster of emotions. He was about two weeks early but a good weight, but his lungs weren´t working which meant he wasn´t breathing unassisted  and this put a strain on his heart. He was intubated and spent days in intensive care, and also caught a generalised infection. He was in intensive care for about a week but slowly overcame all the problems and finally went to the nursery and eventually was discharged yesterday. I shall be seeing him tomorrow. His name, which is highly appropriate, is Victor.


  1. What a lot of worry you have all had for the past 2 weeks. We were so pleased to read that Victor has improved and is now home. Life will be much happier now!

  2. Was this child born in Brazil or elsewhere? Good to hear he is home and presumably well.

    1. Thank you Rachel. He was born here in Brazil, I´ve just got back from going to see him and give him his first Nana cuddle!
