    New toys!
    Thursday, November 23, 2006
    Yes my Cricut arrived on Monday and it is fab, fab, fabulous! I love it. So much in fact that i have had to order another 2 cartridges from the US. Unbelievably i bought 2 cartridges that cost me £60 which is the equivalent to the price of one here in the UK! So hopefully some time next week they'll turn up, along with some Christmas stamps i have bought for my Christmas cards. I really must make a start on that and also a calendar i'm supposed to be making for around 15 people *gulp*.
    I'm still suffering from my cold and think i have sinusitus again but thankfully i do feel somewhat better than i have done and also Corey is much much better thanks to the antibiotics. We were supposed to go out to meet a friend on Tuesday but she came to us instead and brought Corey a belated birthday present which he loves. A Bob the Builder jumper and also a car complete with horse box and horses. Yesterday was nursery and also a Hospital appt with Corey's respiratory consultant in the afternoon so as soon as i picked him up from nursery we had to head off into town which meant no nap so he was tired. Considering this he was really well behaved. I on the otherhand ended up very angry. Firstly we got there early at 3.10pm and our appt was at 3.30pm. We were eventually seen at 4.35pm. Unfortunetely i'm not the type to complain so kept my mouth shut but what really upset me was that we were seen by a doctor who we have never seen before and didn't know anything of Corey's medical history. Even though it's a respiratory appt the doctor normally asks about his development and gets him doing things to see how he is doing, we had none of this. The only thing he was really concerned with was his weight and basically said he was too skinny. Well yes he is thin, it's taken a very long time to get Corey to eat seen as he was tube fed for nearly 2 yrs so it's not as if he's going to start eating 3 course dinners anywhere in the near future. He is a very happy, very lively and energetic little boy. If he wasn't getting the calories he needed surely he would be tired and lethargic. Anyway he is referring us back to the dietician. I tried to call her this morning but in typical fashion she wasn't there so hopefully she will call tomorrow before we go out. So i was in a strop for a while yesterday about things but am ok now i've had time to cool down. We don't go back to the hospital for another 6 months so i feel a bit cheated really.
    Did i metion that tomorrow we are going to stay at the Alton Towers hotel? We just wanted a night away and though this hotel would be fab for Corey. We have bought tickets for the waterpark as well and corey is really looking forward to going swimming. The best part of it is that the rooms are £124 but after a bit of bargain hunting(i'm good at that) i found us a room for £20 on lastminute.com! Now how cool is that! Looking forward to just being able to chill out and eat some good food i hope!
    Finally here are a few pictures from Corey's birthday(at last!)

      He is gorgeous! Can I just say in defense of the hospital (!) that it's just the way the NHS works. They make the doctors "rotate" so they move on every 3 months and it's a pain for the patients, cos unless they see the Consultant, or at a push the Registrar, they will see someone different every time. Our patients used to get upset too. And for the waiting? Well, some patients are hard to get out the door when their time is up, and it pushes the whole thing back. It's not great, I know :( Hope you don't need to go there for that much longer. HUGS!
