Today is the one year anniversary of when Samuel came home from Neonatal Intensive Care.
I’m sure most parents don’t mark when their child came home from hospital, just their birthday, but for us it is particularly significant.
We spent 8 weeks in hospital watching doctors desperately trying to find the right medicine concoction for him and being warned that we may never get him home. They’d come over to his cot, scratch their heads and say, ‘well he’s a bit of a tricky customer isn’t he’. Tricky, but so very precious.
In some ways the last year has flown by, in others it feels like Sam has been a part of our lives forever.
We don’t have anything particularly remarkable planned to mark this day, instead Sam and I will spend the day cuddling and appreciating the important things.
