Liam is Here!!!

I am so very sorry to have taken so long to post this wonderful news...Liam was born at 2.25am on July 19th after a marathon 54 hours labour! He weighed in at 5lbs 1oz which was really good considering he is 5 weeks early because of Priscilla's cancer.
Liam is thriving, nursing fiercely and winning hearts and his Mum has my complete and utter admiration for her strength, courage and maturity...I call her Warrior Queen now!

This is Day 1, Liam spent his first 12 hours on a ventilator, he had x-rays and blood tests too...2 hours old and then 12 hours old after the breathing tubes had been removed. He's a beautiful baby.



On the second or third day he was moved to what Priss calls his "big boy bed" and he was able to breast-feed at last...


These photos are from Monday so he's 3 days old in them...we're deliberately  taking and sharing lots of photos as visitors are strictly restricted, Priss is still recovering and Liam needs to be kept quiet and safe from illness etc...













As he was rather fussy 2 nights the Night Nurse looking after him thought it a good idea to blame Priscilla for his condition...suffice to say she was "told" by Priss and removed from caring for him!

Not long after Liam's birth Priscilla was taken off for an MRI scan of the tumour and we're still awaiting the results of that. Fingers crossed please.

So, a long and stressful week or two for every-one concerned. Liam is here now, very healthy and so much loved by all...can't wait to hold this little Love in my arms for real.

Thank you all so much for your kind words, thought, prayers and messages,
Love from us all
