Gavin: Sleepless nights

Sonny has now broken the Wittington's record for the number of infusions in a 24 hour period. 18 different things were pumped into him last night ranging from 4 different antibiotics, potassium and the pills we normally give him as his body is refusing to digest anything. Considering these take from 1 to 2 hours plus a flush at the end to go in, I'm surprised there's enough hours in the day to finish them all. He's not getting any better so we're off to GOSH tomorrow to see how they'll make him more comfortable and then work out the longer plan on Monday as Zo said below. It's been a long haul, but these last few nights, for many different reasons, have been the longest yet.

  1. Hi Gav and Zoe. I've been followng your blog and obviously talking to Sian. Fingers crossed that GOSH get Sonny's medication back on track within first couple of hours of being there, and Sonny not in any more discomfort. He is a great fighter, and he will give this horrible illness a good kick. Lots of love to all of you and our best wishes for things to get better. Jacky (Garner that was!) Simon and Georgia x
