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 leaves PICU

When Little Leons Mummy and Daddy arrived at the hospital this morning, it was to find little Leon off all of the drugs except the Morphine and the ventilator had been taken out . He was looking wide awake and patting Noel on the nose!

Little Leon telling Dr Noel its a job well done!

Noel and  The blanket bear had been keeping an eye on Little Leon all night and were very tired. Well just as Mummy and Daddy were getting ready to go for a coffee Leons nursey laydee came in and said because he was doing so well and there was excessive cuteness on ICU they were going to move him back to Ward 10 where he was originally from. Leon was very happy about this and had Nurse Ann and  Mummy pack his things, even so he left his hat behind and it was sent up in a pod!!  So, off he went down the corridor with a young man pushing his cot, its fab, it has wheels and goes up and down!  Up in the lift, down another corridor and back to HDU at the bottom of ward 10, Nursey Rachel was pleased to see Little Leon and plumbed all the monitors in for him.

While Nurse Rachel was plugging things in, Mummy got to hold Leon for the first time since Monday morning, woo it was a lovely feeling and Little Leon enjoyed being cuddled, he is waiting for afternoon story time, so Mummy can read and Daddy can have  a cuddle as well. 

Mummy Holds Little Leon for the fist time all week

Little Leon gives Daddy a cuddle!
Story time 'The Most precious thing'
He is making good progress so far and getting his milky through a tube, Daddy fancies getting  his beer that way!  Soon Little Leon can start on his milky and food again so he can grow stronger and his heart will get better and the repair will get stronger as well!

Mummy and Daddy are worn out from mainlining adrenaline for five days ! As they were leaving for the evening Little Leon snuggled under his blanket for a nap before the night nursey comes in and he can show off his new pink cuteness!
