Little grand daughter has now been moved from the high dependency unit to a normal ward. They are keepinh her in hospital for another day and night but our daughter says she is improving.
Daughter hasn't had any real sleep for 2 days. A friend will take her in some fresh clothes and washing stuff so that she can at least freshen up.
Please keep her in your thoughts as her life has been filled with so much stress lately and it's frustrating, not to say anguishing to be so powerless to help.
Every time I woke up last night I started that hymn in my head " Lay your hands gently upon them" It's a beautiful hymn/prayer.

Thank you again good friends for all your encouraging thoughts and words. Bless you all.

At this stage I don't know Middie. She may need them removing at a later date when the throat has healed a little.
Of our 2 children 1 had them out and the other not.
These days they seem to prefer not to remove them unless the need is serious.
Hopefully we will get another call tonight with an update on her progress.
We hope to go down the week after next ( it's a 4 hour drive away) when I may be able to help by cleaning ,gardening and cooking so that our daughter may be able to get some vitally needed rest.

Have just had this evening's bulletin. Not the tonsilis at all but Tracheitis which apparently is a bacterial infection of the Trachea which young children can be affected by and which always requires hospital treatment. Thankfully, they know what they are dealing with and dealt with it promptly.
Little one is reluctant to drink as her throat is so tender but she knows that she needs to drink ( and often) if she is to go home tomorrow which is what she would like. I hadn't realised that whilst she was in HDU our daughter could not have a bed near her..just a chair in case immediate action requiring space was needed. Tonight she will have a bed next to our dear one and hopefully may get the odd hour sleep.
A friend of hers took her in something to eat as the hospital don't feed the relatives and her daughter didn't want to let her out of her sight!

Once again I thank all of you for listening and caring and praying. This is for each one of you

so good to hear that the little one is on the mend and I hope that Mum gets some peaceful rest soon

The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.
