11 August 2012

“The next morning Reuben was sick again and then he brightened up once more. We headed for Dean Forest and all enjoyed the Gruffalo trail and later visited a local carnival and fair. I had not been happy with Reuben’s health for some time and for 2 weeks he had been holding his head to the left slightly. I had asked our Doctors to look at his ears and they had seen nothing. When we got back to the hotel I made an out of hours appointment to see a Doctor at Gloucester hospital. We were called in by an elderly Gentleman. “Hiya Grandad” said Reuben… “ High 5 Grandad”… as most Mummy’s will know sat here today, whenever you pitch up to any appointment with a poorly child, they will practically tap dance in front of you and put on a one man show to completely show you up and make you out to be a real Pinnochio. Clearly the Doctor thought that everything was ok and when I asked him to take a look at his ears he did and gave us a prescription for an ear infection.. he advised us Reuben wouldn’t be able to swim on holiday and I was gutted… if only… I was relieved that a diagnosis had been made and we could head for Devon the next day.”

This was the photo I sent to God Mummy Ali, as she was really concerned and I said to him smile for Ali, so immediately we got “cheese”. Looking back, he does look tired in this photo….. we had just seen our 3rd GP and still nothing was untoward. Nobody could have known………

We have had a lovely day with the family and Jacob is staying for a sleepover…..
I wish things were different, but they are not. MISS is party of every day……
