Christmas time in our house
First of all Merry Christmas to all the followers of Ellies blog. Thank you for taking the time to read Ellies story and for providing support and encouragement.
We as a family had a great christmas day spent with family and friends, (however it was tinged with a bit of sadness as we were supposed to be in Newcastle with Lukes family) the reason we didnt go was as we are still playing around with Ellies seizure medication, we felt more comfortable being near home and Ellies doctors. Ellie got very spoilt, and got alot of great gifts, especially ones to help her, such as a large rubber mat to practice her rolling on, some therapy toys, and a small pool to splash around in.
Ellie also got the lovely outfit above from my younger brother, So we couldnt resist making her "Santas little helper" for the day.
An update on Ellies eye: Ellies eye is doing well, we have finally taken the patch of permanently, and YES I am now used to the glass eye... However we still need to be careful as it can come out quite easily, like this morning when I was giving Ellie a bottle, and for 1 minute I was looking at her thinking, she looks diferent.... it was then that I realised that her glass eye had fallen out.... after a quick freak out, we found it, under her tumble form chair that I feed her in... No idea how it got there, but we were quick to put it back in.
Once again, thank you to all the followers of Ellies story, and from our family to yours, We hope you had a wonderful christmas.
