Despite our big move and being away from our familiar ward, Ellie was in a great mood today. Her oxygen saturation still isn’t up to it’s normal standards, but she had a lot more energy and was much less whingy (well until the afternoon anyway).
We had a great time and because Ellie was just stuck with me for most of the day (normally she gets lots of visitors) we had to make up our own fun. I think we succeeded.
It also seems a little clearer as to how long we will be here. Generally, there are no long termers on this ward, so as soon as Ellie’s cold is given the all clear we will be moved off again….hopefully back to where we were before.

Ellie has really learned to love dancing, it has become a way for her to communicate that she is enjoying something.
She has even started dancing when I read to her…..which is cute, but also counterproductive.
