So far – in your short little life (just 48 days) you’ve spent 13 days in the Royal Berkshire Hospital. After mummy’s Cesarian and a nasty blood infection, mummy and daddy have spent lots of time worrying about you. You caught a blood infection called Strep B within your first few weeks and unfortunately it lingered around unexpectedly and we rushed you back in on your 5th week. Mummy and daddy took it in turns to stay with you and get you through it. We have our fingers crossed you won’t need further antibiotics but, if you do, next time it’ll be Oxford as they have better equipment for tiny people.
