Madeleine...


Madeleine is a miracle...when she was 8 weeks old she developed rsv bronchiolitis and was put on life support...we were asked if we wanted to have her christened in hospital and told to bring in the family to say goodbye...you can see in the first photo she was a very sick little girl...she was in total organ failure and had oxygen levels of 56% and carbon dioxide poisoning and sepsis...TOTAL body poisoning through infection.


She was on life support for two whole weeks, going through 3 different sorts of ventilators, the third being the one that ultimately and miraculously saved her life.


A very stressful period in my life, as Jacob was also on life support at the same time...I'll tell his story when I do his page...


So, here is a page I did to celebrate her strength, her joy. her love and my love for her...


Hope you like it...she sure did...lol


Until next time

Lots of it

Mandy
