High Fives All Around: The Wednesday Blog Hop...


Happy Wednesday lovelies.

Good morning. Happy Wordless Or Not So Wordless Wednesday.

Welcome back to this week's photo sharing linky party: 'The Wednesday Blog Hop'.

Do you have any posts with photos in them to share with us today?


I have been waiting for yesterday to arrive for 6 months now. 6 whole months. I know you should not wish your life away but when your child has a health problem, you just want the days to go quickly to see if it improves. 

6 months of waiting, a sicky feeling in my stomach whenever I think of her problem getting worse. 6 months of counting down the days, then getting on with life until the day the appointment is looming again. 

The weekend went by slowly but Tuesday soon come around one this week started. We had to visit the hospital to see if a tumour in my Daughters eye had grown. The waiting in the hospital felt like hours and hours. Minutes ticked by and I was watching the clock tick by every minute of the way.

First up some eye drops to make the pupils bigger and a 10-minute wait.
.
.
.
 Which turned into 48 minutes but who is counting? Hehe, yes me. Every minute and every second of them.

Then a visit to the eye doctor who scans the back of the eye. She was very quiet this time. Did that mean it was good news or bad news this time? She never said anything. Also, she never showed me the scan like last time. So what did this mean? I was on tend hooks.

Another wait in the waiting room to see the Doctor for the results.
.
.
.
Not to long this time before we were called. The Doctor is lovely. A very caring lady who remembered my Daughter straight away because my Daughters tumour is very rare. We sat down and she told us the good news. No changes. The tumour has not grown. I was so happy and I could feel all the stress drain out my body. 

It is the same size 'I asked again' Not grown? Yes, she said and turned the computer scream around to show me. It looks like a lot of sparkly tiny silver dots but them again the eye pictures are blown up so big the cannot be very big at all.

That is it for another 6 months and we will check again she said. Also before we went she asked if another Doctor could take a look as they had never seen anything like this before. I was so pleased there was no change I don't think I will be as nervous next time!?

When we got back to the car park and sat in the car, my Daughter said to wait. Remember the first time we came and you promised we could do jump and do high fives if nothing was wrong and we couldn't do it because there was something wrong? 

'Well, can we do them now?'

No, not now, there are people walking around and cars driving by?

'But please mummy?'

OK, go on then.

So we got out the car and jumped into a high five clap in the carpark!! Things you do for your kids eh!! 

As you can guess, I do not have a photo of us doing the high five, so I thought I would share this puppy photo today to show how much love went into it!!

  3. Oh, Claire! I had no idea your family is dealing with such a scary health concern with your daughter. I'm elated to hear there is no change with this visit and hopefully this is a good sign. I certainly will remember her in my prayers. I believe in miracles! A joyful moment of celebration is definitely deserved. Blessings to you and yours! {{{Hugs}}}
