Getting Better.

Our big little boy has been having trouble breathing and has spent a few days in hospital. He doesn't like it much. It's no fun at all having to stay in bed for a whole week, and put up with the nurses poking and prodding him, and as for that face mask.... well.... definitely not his idea of a good time.

He's been very brave. Mummy and Daddy and Grandma and Nana have been there to read stories to him. And Thomas the Train and his train friends Gordon and Bill and Stanley and Victor do a great job of cheering him up if he feels sad.


He can put up with all the inconveniences of hospital life as long as he gets some new toys every day. Fingers crossed and knock on wood, only another couple of days and he'll be right as rain, and running around at home, terrorising Leon the cat.
Thank you, doctors and nurses, for being so caring and kind and looking after our Callum so well.

Oh Dear...That has to be very hard on dear Callum, and on all of you, too. I hope whatever is wrong will get straightened out and that he will not have to deal with it any more. He looks adorable---even in that Hospital Bed! I send him (((HUGS))) and to you too, my dear.

Sorry to see this.
I hope he will soon be home. It's hard on little ones, hospital is a scary place. Hard on Mummies, Daddies and Nanna's too.

Ohhhh....it makes my heart ache to see our little ones having such a difficult time.
Praying for a speedy recovery for Callum and strength for you and the rest of the family.
New toys are good medicine.
I love the bandage that is heart shaped.
Wishing you the best.

I could echo Photowannabe's comment word for word. Except the "Sue" part. Mine would say "Craver" or something. :-)

So hard for little children to be in hospital. I hope little Callum is feeling much better now or will very soon.

It just breaks your heart to see this happen to our wee children/g'children, Sham. These pictures are precious...especially knowing little Callum is so loved. Now I'll find out more from your next post....
