It feels like months since I’ve seen her but Rose has been steadily improving and I’m almost symptom free! Poor Andrew must be seriously behind with work as he’s been sitting with Rose each day watching her sleep it off.
Rose is back on full feeds with few vomits, no panadol and she’s still on high flow at 6 litres. It sounds like she’s much brighter.
I need to be completely symptom free to be allowed back in to be with her. I really can’t describe how being away from her feels. It’s a type of madness, a deafening roar in the background of everything I do. I’ve been trying to ignore it. It’s definitely the most challenging part of this long NICU journey. I hope she isn’t feeling it too much!
