Things were going pretty well until the last few days when Oscar has been felling unwell. He hasnt been eating, has been sick a few times and has shocking diarrhoea. We had been running overnight feeds into his NG nose tube but we think the milk is actually agitating his stomach so we've stopped the feeds and are trying to convince the Doctors over here to put him on TPN (IV nutrition, straight into the veins). If we were home in Belfast he'd be on it already! Could be a row tomorrow... He is on antibiotics as a precaution incase something is working on him.
Thankfully he has had a nibble at a couple of Happy Meals from McDonalds today (yes, 2 happy meals!!!) so hopefully he is starting to come round.
He got out for some big walks around Regents Park this week once his levels dropped below 800. At this level he is allowed out for an hour, but we must keep him away from people as much as possible. He had a great time feeding the ducks, pigeons & squirrels, and eating ice cream.
Away from the hospital, Izzie has been having a great time in London. Hamleys is her new favourite shop where mummy has taken her a couple of times. She just runs around screaming and shouting 'YAYYYYY' at all the toys. Her other favourite place to go is to the pub with Daddy! She gets lots of attention from the barmaids and gets a big glass of orange juice to drink while she's there.
