Son's health not going badly at present. We had a pretty torrid January and Feb with asthma, chest infections spreading to generalised septacemia and epilepsy taking turns to put him in a pretty uncomfortable state. (It was the aftermath of this that prompted me to start the blog.) Managed to keep him out of hospital with the help of his nursing team - he always deteriorates in hospital and he's had a reasonable month or so since things settled down. Six weeks off antibiotics is pretty good for him at any time, so from a caring perspective things are about as good as they get.
We still have the staff recruitment problem - it's difficult to be seen when your team is so small but the viral advertising campaign is now underway so hopefully we'll get some interest.
Daren't book a holiday this year, in case we don't get the staff but at present we're managing to cover the bulk of shift by filling in the gaps ourselves.
The long awaited shoes are still awaited but are promised this week.
CQC has responded to our entreaties not negatively.
The weather is picking up (though hay fever triggering asthma isn't good) and generally things don't feel too bad just now.
I just can't help wondering what's round the corner!
