Day 3 - Thursday 22nd June 2017

I woke up early again this morning, Lisa was trying to express some milk and was stressing out because hardly anything was coming out..... it was still early days though.... she was doing really well with it 😃

It was our first night together as a family since Thursday last week, so we all managed to get a relatively good night's sleep..... we all got up, got ready, and went over to spend the morning with Theo as a family ❀ ❀

Lisa's sister came up again to see us all in the morning, she has been so supportive to to us all, I don't know what we would have done without her this last few days....

I set off on a mission to furnish our new home at around 10am.... but first I had to sort the dogs out.... I took Bobby to my office as he was going to stay with one of my senior managers for the next 3-4 months; and then I took Coco to a close freinds as she was going to be stopping there, although our friend couldn't have Coco over the weekends or for more than a couple of weeks, so I needed to sort something else out for her, or both of them, as I would prefer them to be together.

I spent most of the day running around getting stuff for our new home for the next 3-4 months, and packing up what we needed from Home. I bought a privacy screen for Jack..... I know how hard this is going to be for him over the next few months living in the same room as his parents, especially at this stage of his life.....

I couldn't imagine stopping in the same room as my parents when I was 11.... but he was being really grown up about it.... It is almost the summer holidays and he's going to be spending it in a hospital, without any home comforts..... we had a telly in the room (albeit there was no signal because there was a problem with the server); so I picked up Jack's playstation so he could at least have some normality....

Theo has been pretty good today, they have put the new long line in his leg and got it in the right place this time..... it's a really tricky procedure.... it took two doctors, three attempts!! I am really worried about this honeymoon period, the doctors have said that prem babies are usually ok for the first 3 or 4 days, then they go downhill..... Theo will be fine though; he's super strong so I know he's going to be ok.... I love him so much ❀❀❀

Today has been a bit of a blank..... I think I'm running on adrenalin and I'm starting to feel pretty tired now, but I've got to keep going for Lisa, Jack and Theo.... they are relying on me to stay strong and get us all through this. Lisa is really tired and I know that she is blaming herself for everything.... she just wants to care for him but we can only hold his hand, stroke his head and tell him everything is going to be ok..... it's so hard to deal with.... I'm trying my hardest to keep it together but the whole thing is breaking my heart!

Tomorrow is another day and we just need to take every day as it comes, and hope that Theo gets stronger and stronger...... I know he will..... my little solider ❀❀❀
