Our New Arrival

Our New Arrival

I have been very pre occupied of late because of this fabulous little person.

His name is Louie John and he was born last Wednesday and weighed 6lb 12 ozs,although he is now less as he has been quite a sicky baby,but, slowly getting better.

He was born by c section,so we have to give Mum lots of help the next 6 weeks (feels familiar).

Very emotional since if I hadn't been here,I wouldn't have seen him,but getting over that now and onwards and upwards!

Hope all you lovely ladies are doing as well as expected,

Love to you all,

Carole xxx

  • He's just gorgeous Carole, hope he starts to thrive very soon and that mum is feeling better too. Lovely name. Enjoy him and give him lots of big cuddles and love ❀️Xx Jane

  • He's so sweet, and so perfect looking. Xx

  • What a gorgeous baby Louie is! Enjoy him. What a joy grandchildren are. I have 3 daughters, 2 grandsons and a grandbaby due on 1st June. Wonderful! Xx

  • So beautiful. I totally understand being emotional. It's what this diseases does to us but as you said time now to enjoy and do it big time xxx

  • What a gorgeous little babe! Congratulations, Carole. I can empathise with you feeling emotional , thinking you may not have been here. I feared I wouldn't see my seventh grandchild born, due four months after I was diagnosed ten years ago. I have been so lucky to welcome four more grandchildren and two great-grandchildren since.

    Hope all goes well for your daughter and Louie soon stops being a sicky babe. I was reading recently that Mum's about to have Caesareans can be treated with the good stomach bacteria and then the baby having the same thing for a while, after they arrive. (I've forgotten the name but it's what's found in natural live yogurt, for example.) Trials found babies were much happier without being so colic-y. With Caesarians, babies are born quickly so don't swallow so much as they would as babies born during their longer journey down the birth canal. Sorry, this is a bit garbled. What it showed was that babies can be given the good bacteria which then helps their digestion. I don't know whether it's being done yet but might be worth asking about it if he doesn't soon settle more.

    Don't get too tired yourself, love Solange 😊

  • Thanks Solange for your advice,he seems to be settling down a bit now,he is so small and I agree about the swallowing,but he is taking more feed and swallowing better,

    Thank you xxx

  • That's good news!! Xx

  • He is so gorgeous! You must be so proud.

    Very happy that you are still here to enjoy him. Big hug

  • Oh he's so lovely, Carole. Babies always make me emotional and in our circumstances it's even more understandable. Enjoy!

Enjoy lots of cuddles with your beautiful little boy.

    Are you well?

    Carole xxx

  • I'm so so happy for you all 😊 Enjoy every minute of it.

    I'm doing ok at the mo...been fighting a horrid virus lately (seems a few are going round!) and awaiting results from prostate biopsies my Dad had recently, which has been a bit of a whirlwind worry! Still, life goes on doesn't it.


  • There's always something love,not my turn for a virus this year lol!have had them the last 3,just drink lots of water,lemons and honey and do the Vicks inhalers,my remedy to help for what it's worth!

    Hoping Dad has a good outcome,my husband had a couple in that area and all came back clear,a worry at the time,but hopefully good news,

    Wishing you all the best,

    Carole xx

  • Thanks to all you lovely ladies for your good wishes,I hope this finds you well and fighting the good fight as we all do,

    Best wishes,

    Carole 😘Xxx
