Our Last Appointment at our Local Hospital & 1 Month Today!!

Hey Everyone,

We had another appointment at the Royal Surrey today for a routine scan. They have a new consultant there who was really lovely. To be honest she just took a really human attitude towards us and was very sensitive about the situation.

Anyway things are much the same. James is looking adorable and is a big, strong boy. He was less camera shy today and gave us some really sweet little movements. I absolutely cannot wait to meet this little chap!!!

Having said that I found the day itself really hard. As we were in the waiting room a couple was brought through to the 'sitting area'. They had found something on their routine scan. Knowing the pain they were going through in that little room was awful to watch. I guess you never really understand those moments until you have been there.

So it's a month today that our little man should begin his roller! Coupled with the absolute joy of getting to see this characterful little bundle is the immense fear of the CDH roller coaster. We have tremendous support and I thank you all for your prayers. Please keep them coming......little one just did a big stretch - I think he's trying to say thank you to!

Finally for those who don't know, I am a singing teacher and run a small choir here in the UK. We had our 'end of term' concert last night and the students were so amazing. They gave me beautiful flowers and sung their hearts out! We put a little 'donations bucket' out to raise money for Ronald McDonald Houses and I was once again blown away by the generosity of this small group. They are all aware of CDH now as well so it was a great mini awareness drive. Thank you so much to all of the girls, boys and their parents - an incredible group!

Thanks for checking in folks.

With Much Love!!

I'm so sorry you had to see that couple get that bad news, whatever it was. I know you could relate, and that must have been hard.

Your group of kids sound amazing. How generous of them to give to the Ronald McDonald house. You must love your job.

Not much longer. I think we'll be about 2 weeks behind you. We're really going to try to make it to 37 weeks, as our MFM will be out of town the week before. I just pray that we can make it that long. I'm awfully uncomfortable.

Hugs to you and your family.

Love, Stephanie

I have been thinking of you guys!! 1 month is so soon. I didn't know you sang. I am a singer too, classically trained. I love it. I majored in music in college actually, as well as psychology. I used to sing to Max every day. As for the bracelets, just send me your address. I am not sure about shipping but will let you know once they are in the mail. :-) Much love and many prayers

I am sorry to hear about the couple who got the sad news. I have been their three times so I know how hard it is.

One month to go! I am thinking of you and praying for your little one. I am sure he enjoys you singing to him

I just stumbled across your blog. I wanted you to know that I am thinking of you as you prepare to meet your little son. I was looked after at St Georges when my son Joel was born just over three years ago. Everyone there is fantastic.My son Joel, despite a very brave battle, lost his fight but I know he was given the best care and was looked after by the very best people. I will be thinking of you
Lots of love Debbiexxxxxx

Hi Guys,
Just dropping in to say I thought good thoughts for the three of you last night. I hope James's prayer evening was a lovely evening. We're counting the days now til James makes his entrance and starts his CDH journey.

Love and kisses
