We feel pretty helpless out poor little girl has been through a lot and is still fighting, we miss our wee family life so much, we've been told now she will need surgery we just don't know when,

She opened her eyes last night for the first time since New Year's Eve! She's awake but still intubated and on ventilator, it kills me when she cries no sound comes out and I can't lift her to comfort her just wish I could back to Christmas Day. I haven't held her for more than 5 minutes since then really starting to feel it now

That sounds like a great sign that she opened her eyes! I'm sure it's really hard seeing her a bit more alert and unable to pick her up though. Are you able to touch her at all? My MIL was quite ill when OH was a baby and unable to pick him up. The doctor showed her how to brushher fingers gently back and forth in the area between his eyebrows. Apparently it worked really well to comfort him without picking him up.

She was taken off the ventilator last night and is breathing on her own now, I got to hold her for a couple of minutes today which was amazing, a little awkward due to all the wires, she will need more surgery in the future but for now it's a good start, our house is so empty without her, we miss her so much

Thank you everyone, nobody ever expects to be here and I hope none of you ever are in this position, we've only had her 6 weeks now but our home feels so empty without her, I don't think you ever realise just how much you love your children until they're almost taken from you, kiss you little babies and hug them a little longer and take all the photos you can you just never know how long it could be until you get the next one xx will keep you updated
