Dear All


Just before signing off PC, I wanted to add these two links:


Bliss Family Support Helpline on 0500 618140

The Helpline is available Monday to Friday between 9am and 9pm.

ALL calls are confidential.


The Bliss Family Support Helpline is a UK-wide service that offers advice
and support to families and friends of anyone with a baby who is in,
or has been in, neonatal care.

We also offer advice and information to professionals working with families.

Our team of qualified advisors can provide you with support and advice
as well as referring you to our other services, many of them free of charge.

The Helpline is free to call from landlines.


Also, this link:

provides a list of support groups for almost every situation where help is needed.


Hope this helps.

Take gentle care
Elizabeth, EOS

Well,our little Katie is still struggling.
They tried her off the ventilator again and on Cpap.she managed for a while but it didnt last.She may be moved to another hospital with a chest specialist.
They are finding it puzzling that she's not responding.
Feel so sorry for grandson and partner trying to cope.
Hope Linda's granddaughter is improving.


SueMaid Report 22 Sep 2013 23:24

A very difficult time for you all Brenda - I do hope things improve soon <3


kandj Report 22 Sep 2013 23:32

Poor little baby Katie, and what a worrying time for all the family. Let's hope and pray if baby is moved that she will improve with new treatment.

Ongoing thoughts and prayers for Linda's granddaughter too.


Sylvia Report 22 Sep 2013 23:33

What a terrible time you are all going through Brenda.
Praying things change and Katie is soon sorted out bless her. <3

Latest tonight is that Katie is being transferred once again.this time to the big city brand new children's hospital as she needs lots more tests to see why she's not responding to the treatment.

She can't cope without the ventilator and last night she had a sort of fit.
She is taking milk and seems strong enough to keep trying to pull out her tubes.
She is now 17 days old and not classed as a newborn.

We can't stop thinking of her and willing her to improve.
Hope to hear that Linda's granddaughter is getting better.


LindainHerriotCountry Report 23 Sep 2013 23:16

She is going for an echo heart scan tomorrow as her heart is on the wrong side and a mirror image of what it should be. Her feeding is no different, she still has to be fed totally through the tube. She now has high calorie milk formula which is only on prescription to mix with her mums expressed milk,as they want her to put more weight on.
Her tube came out today so they had to go to the hospital to get a new one put in. while it was out, they tried bottle feeding, but she just screamed. She has such bad acid reflux that she equates feeding with pain

I hope that the specialist children's hospital will be able to help Katie

Sending positive thoughts and prayers for both little babies and both families.

What a worrying time it is for everyone right now. I just keep thinking that the little girls are in the best place and will surely get the very best of care.

I hope both little ones will get stronger each day and their problems will be sorted out soon. It's so hard when you can't take your baby home to be with the family, and have to watch them go through so much treatment and pulling about.

Positive thoughts to both babies and their families
