August Bank Holiday 2015

When we woke up on Monday morning we didn't have a plan for our Bank Holiday Monday. I'd been keeping an eye on the iPhone weather app for everywhere (yes, everywhere) and on Sunday the only places having nice weather was Barmouth - but by Monday the Llyn Peninsula was meant to be sunny all day long.

Mark went out on his Bike after breakfast so we decided that we would have lunch at home and then head down to Pwllheli for the afternoon and take the girls to the fair (Osh is with his dad this weekend)

The fair at Pwllheli isn't very big, but it's really cheap as the rides are all £1 each. It's ideal for kids of our girl's age because they can go on all the rides.

The first ride they went on was the little train; I love the smile on Martha's face here - she look so happy.
Me and my littlest Girl.

Some news!

We should have caught the 07:22 train from Bangor to Euston today. We had an appointment at Great Ormond Street with Dr Ian Sullivan at 11:15.

But we're still at home. The appointment was cancelled.

As I stood in the Kitchen baking Martha's Birthday cake on Friday (the day before her Birthday) - the house phone rang.

The woman on the other end of the line asked if she was "speaking to Martha's mum"

My stomach wound up in knots - I knew what was coming. Emily was calling me from the Cardiac booking office and she was phoning me to make arrangements for Martha's admission.

So we have our date.

She'll have a CT scan and ECHO performed under General Anesthetic on the day we arrive in London and she's the first on the Theatre list for the following morning, her Surgeon will be Dr Victor Tsang.

So we have three weeks to enjoy a "normal" life and make some last minute memory's before we are once again thrown in to the world of Hospitals and Intensive Care and basically willing our little girl to pull through Open Heart Surgery number 4.

Once again I ask for your prayers and thank you in advance for your support.

Martha Grace turns Two

On Saturday 22nd August, 2015 - Martha Grace turned Two!!!! 

That I can even say that is nothing short of a miracle and we continue to be grateful every day for the time we've had with Martha Grace.

We decided we would buy her a Silver Cross doll's pram and a Baby Born dolly for her Birthday; we only have Isabella's pram for them to play with and to be honest it has seen better days - so now we have a nice new one. Though they've been fighting over it - so we might need to get Isabella a new one for her Birthday in October too.

I spent Friday baking while my Mother did a bit a lot of cleaning and tidying around the house for us as we were having a little tea party in the house for her on Saturday for our families and a few friends. I thought Martha would get overwhelmed with a house full of guests and going without her usual afternoon nap but to be fair to her she did really well (she did fall asleep in my arms about half five though) 

I thought I'd share a few photo's but haven't wanted to share too many as I don't think our families would appreciate their pictures being posted on the internet, so these are the few that I like and that I want to be able to look back on over the coming weeks/months.

I'd like to say a huge thank you to everyone to commented on my personal Facebook account/ the Heart Mammi Facebook page and Twitter and Instagram to wish her a Happy Birthday. We hope and we pray that we'll be celebrating another Birthday with her in 2016.
