Going on Holiday with a sick child

We’re all going on a winter holiday
no more hospital for a week or two.
Fun and laughter on our winter holiday,
lots more worries for me not you,
for a week or two.

The fact that we will be far away from our hospital is worrying enough without having to think about if things go wrong. I already have a bag just for medicines, treatment folders, telephone numbers and what to do in case something does go wrong. Plus I have to arrange to get Elizabeth’s line to be flushed somewhere down south.

The thought of infections, temperatures rising or any of the other things that could happen sends me into cold sweats but I know that we need this holiday, Elizabeth needs this holiday, Alison needs this holiday and I think I need to know that we can do this. Well I know that we can but I still need proof.

Innocent until proven guilty and all that, well I keep thinking this is impossible until proven possible.

Wish us luck x
