Gavin: Bing Bong Merrily on high

It's never anyone's intention to spend Christmas in hospital, but all things aside it was a pretty good day. Sonny was much more coherent but is still pretty rough and managed to be awake for only around three hours. Both kids were amazing though, with Sonny putting on a brave face for his sister and Ruby acting like turning off the bong of the sats machine while eating packet Turkey breast was absolutely normal.
The ward made a huge effort by buying a remote control car for Sonny plus presents for Ruby, Zoe and I and laying on a big buffet in the play room. So alongside the generosity of friends and family and a really cheerful and positive vibe from the nurses it wasn't such a bad time. Well, you know what I mean.

PS: From Italy to Ireland and everywhere in between, we really can't thank you enough for all the presents sent. It took two trips just to get them all in the room and made it very special for him. You all know who you are.
