Happy Little Jelly Bean...

Bubble was in surgery for 8 hours.
ICU for 24 hours.
On the ward for 6 days.

During this time she showed remarkable strength.

Day 5 in hospital.

This is the day that Bubble could finally open her eyes after being swollen shut. She wanted to get out of bed, play with Moo and Bear and explore all the things she hadn't seen but knew were around her.

This is the day we had waited for since giving her kisses 5 days before.

Her bandages came off the following day and she came home with a full head of hair.

It's been 6 weeks since her operation. She has been one very happy little jelly bean with no problems at all. In total she has 61 stitches in her head (I know because I counted them...twice).


  1. What a sweetpea. So glad she's doing well!

  2. Oh Steph, this photo really brings home what happened to Bubble. What a life changing event for everyone in your family. The kids look so happy. Go Bubble Go.

  3. So happy to her that she is doing well, It must be a huge strain on you and your family... 61 stitches WOW! what a brave little bubble! x

  4. It was so great to meet all your wee ones at the market recently Steph. They are all so happy, chatty, friendly and natural ... and it was just fantastic to see little Bubble running around having a blast so soon after her operation. xx
