My blood test results

This anaemia seems to be on it's way out now, thankfully. I had another good nights sleep last night, in fact I over slept and was still in the shower when the health visitor arrived! Midwife called in shortly after. They coincided, and clashed over Freddie's sticky eye needing a swab.

Was almost amusing watching two women I highly respect have a very professional non-argument in front if a patient. HV thought he needed a swab taking to check for infection, MW didn't think he did. Long story short, MW did the swab!

Other than his crusty eyes both women are happy with Freddie. He's gained a lot of weight! Last week he had dropped from 9lb 6oz to 8lb 12lb, his 6% loss. Today he's a whopping 9lb 12oz!!!

My blood test results came back as low but much better than previous, so I've been recommended to get a repeat on my iron tablets instead of changing or going for a transfusion. I can cope with that. My breathlessness has all but gone, I'm sleeping again, and I even have colour in my lips again.

Two of my sisters-in-law came to visit today as well which was lovely. We met up at the local brewers fayer (who did a better job that when we went with my MIL last time) and had lunch while the kids had their obligatory mental run-round. Freddie got snuggled for the whole day - which he loved - the bigger boys were thrilled to see their aunties, and Hubby & I enjoyed a good catch up with his sisters.

Been a good day all round!

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
