If Ellie was in a cricket game and her days in hospital were runs on the board then she has well and truly broken the club record….its time to retire Ellie!

The story of Finding Nemo has many correlations to a premature bubs struggle. Nemo is attacked before he is ready to come into the world but despite the difficulties it brought him (a small fin) he stayed true to his life motto – ‘just keep swimmin’ and never gave up. I know Ellie is going to have a similar gift of endurance when she grows up, she has been forced to learn perseverance at such an early age.
