Once upon a time, not so very long ago........

Little Leon was born with a poorly heart. This made his Mummy and Daddy sad and they decided to search for a special friend who would keep Little Leon company and look after him while he was in hospital.............

The Adventure begins..............

Little Leon goes HOME!

After 12 days of pink cuteness the Big cheese, assistant cheeses, Doctors and Nursey laydees decided that Little Leon was doing very well.  The drains were out, stitches were out, he was eating well and all the scans and x rays were clear.  So they decided to send him home!  Mummy and Daddy could hardly contain their joy!!  Never in their wildest dreams did they think he would be back so soon.

Little Leon was thrilled and set off around the ward to say goodbye to all his laydees and friends he has made in the last 12 days.  He will miss them, especially Nursey Steph who lets him have two wheatabix for breakfast!
Little Leon happy to be home!
So, Daddy put him in the car and set off down the motorway with Mummy, Little Leon and Noel, oh yes and Talbot all singing the wheels on the bus.....  They stopped off at both Grammas houses to show them how well and pink  Little Leon looks, also they needed a hug fix because they haven't seen him for two weeks!  No squeezing though, that would make him pop!  Woo thats a long time to go without hugs!  Leon ate lunch at Gramas house and sneezed pasta and tomato all over Mummy!

Its all too much for Little Leon who snuggles with his bear !
Little Leon was worn out after all his visiting and packing and saying goodbye to his new friend Aysegul who is still in hospital, she was blowing kisses at him when he was upset the night before he left, just to make him feel better and it worked, so Little Leon is sending get better hugs and kisses to help her get well.  He has invited her and the Mummys out to coffee and cake when she is home so they can enjoy the fresh air.

So, tired out from his long day, Little Leon snuggled down in his pillow nest that Mumny had been taught to make by the nurses, went to sleepy and made little kazoo noises so that Mummy and Daddy would know he was alright.

The Cotbed gang welcome Little Leon home at last!
But this isnt the end of the storey of Adventures of Little Leon, Noel and the Cotbed gang, no, this is just the begining, because there are lots of girls and boys out in the world who are poorly, lots of Mummys and Daddys who are worried about them.  Little Leon will continue with his adventures to let them know that there is life after major surgery, and that Mummys and Daddys can pull through too, even when they are really frightened about what will happen to their little ones.

Mummy, Daddy and Little Leon send lots of love, best wishes and a BIG thankyou to everyone who has followed his story so far! Mr W who fixed his heart, the Surgical team, laydee Eleanor and her Anaesthetic team, the nurses on Ward 4 (PICU), Ward 10, Dr Brown, Dr Sam and Dr Trinette.  And everyone else who has helped Leon through the last seven months, you know who you are !   

Love Helen, Don and Little Leon xxx

Welcome Home Leon! So happy for all of you. I have been following your journey, with prayers for a happy outcome. Continued for complete healing, got to get those snuggles and hugs in while they are little. They grow up so fast.
