I just thought I'd catch up with everyone that offered help and support over the past few weeks. We are now out in Australia and I am pleased to say that our DiL is now out of hospital with home support. She has had her medication reduced, is a wonderfully caring, if a little scared, new Mom. Our son has done an amazing job, I'm so proud of him, our new grandchild is the most relaxed, even tempered and happy child. The icing on the cake today was when my DiL came back from a hospital visit her daughter certainly seemed to give her a smile and DiL was delighted!! It was lovely to see!😍
We've had the privilege of our first babysitting day!!
Thank you all for your wise words, thanks to you, I don't think I have said anything inappropriate and I think we are managing to give support without unnecessary comment or guidance, which has made for a lovely relaxed first week here.
We aren't staying with the 'children' we have our own apartment and are careful not to visit every day or stay beyond bath time, so that Mom and baby each have their routine's unaffected by us.
I am still worried about my lovely DiL, but only yesterday saw the old sparkle in her eyes a little, which was such a blessing.
I know it's early days, but they seem to be getting good support and are in a much better position than they were a few weeks ago.
Just wanted to let you know and thank you.
Hoping you're all keeping well,
