That is interesting Bridget. Two things occur to me. I wonder if they treat the diease differently in Pakistan and if the British hospital had contacted somebody to find out.

Secondly How awful for the first hospital to state that he could not possible be the father without knowing the full facts. What trouble they could have caused.


Diamonds-R-A-Girls-Best-Friend Report 16 Jan 2012 23:24

Oh dear Mr, Ms or Dr at the London hospital should have known better.

Come on ZZ be strong.
We are all behind you with our love and thoughts.



Sylvia Report 16 Jan 2012 23:37

Still thinking of ZZ and her family.
ZZ you are a very strong and brave little girl.
Keep fighting little one.

Good afternoon to you all and thank you for your messages.
A few points.
ZZs family did not live in London when ZZ was born but to keep there privacy I am not allowed to say exactly where they did live.
The local doctor was very good and they were sent to a Famous childrens hospital in London. It was only when they moved because A doctor in London told them about Bristol having first contacted the Doctor there and as it is known to be the leading light in this area that they moved,
I hope that explains it more clearly.

Yes Ann the present Consultant is in contact with the doctor in Pakistan, and you all may be interested to learn that it was a Doctor in America who researched tjis and told the doctor in Bristol...they now work very closely together.

Well dear people I will notify again until I hear what happens on Thursday, unless there is something special to add,

My heartfelt thank you

Hello everyone.

Yesterday OH and I went out shopping and had a few good buys but when we arrived home we were both feeling worn out and un well. Mor about that on my Daily Diary
I have not heard anything from my sister, I called her just a few minutes ago but no reply, so trying to keep positive.

As soon as I get a call or a message I will let you know what the news is.....I am hoping that it is good news.

Bridget <3 :-)

Good morning dear people,

At last I have some news re ZZ. Telephoned my sister and left a message, she sent an email last night.,

It has been decided that as both My niece and ZZ are not sleeping very well, My niece being a well trained nurse and learnt to much about this condition that they could go home. So last night was the second night back home.
The plan is that ZZ may be inclined to have more food at home and must increase her weight by 1.5 Kilo within six weeks or she will have to go back into hospital. My fear is almost palpable that she is home because there is little else, if anything, that can be done. I know that ZZs chances are slim ......
but I have to stay positive and keep saying the prayers, and keep reading all your supportive messages. ( hope that sentence makes sense).

I worry about ZZs older sister, she must be bewildered at times, my sister is a wonderful Grandma and her aunt and uncle and their families who live very close by are caring etc but ........... I think you will know what I am trying to say.
Enjoy your day and I will be back again when I have more news. I do peek in and out just to reminded myself how marvellous you all are, staying by my side.

Hi Bridget,
I am thinking of you all. Hope you and your OH are feeling better. Praying for little ZZ. Maybe she will eat a little more in her own home. take great care. xx

Hi Bridget, I do hope little ZZ will eat more at home and put that weight back on, but whatever happens, it's probably nicer for her to be at home with her family and familiar things around her and that will make for better memories and times for them all. Your poor niece must be exhausted, bless her, she has worked so hard to help her little one. As long as ZZ's sister is helping within the family by maybe being given little responsiblities or whatever so she doesn't feel shut out, I am sure she will cope well, she has so many caring people around her.

Let's keep hoping for better news each day

take care of yourself
