I probably won't post for a little bit as this little soldier is in hospital. His cold and cough got worse and on Sunday he sounded really chesty and a little breathless. Then he had a coughing fit and he looked like he was choking, which was so frightening. Long story short - he ended up being admitted to hospital. He has bronchiolitis and needs a little bit of oxygen and is being tube fed. When they were checking the little man's chest they discovered a heart murmur. They did a heart trace and found he has a hole in his heart. We've seen a paediatric cardiologist who told us the hole is medium sized. Not small enough to close on its own but not big enough to need emergency surgery. They want him to recover from bronchiolitis and in a month they will see him again to determine what needs to be done and whether he needs surgery. Seeing your baby in pain is the worst feeling in the world - you just want to take it all away. I'd be ill all my life just so Rafe would be okay. It's been a tough, devastating, scary few days. But he's on the mend and already looking to me for milk so the milk monster is returning! Don't know when we will be out of hospital but hopefully not too long. But he's our little fighter. ❤️
