Story

Barts Charity also fundraise the Neonatal Transfer Service London (NTS), they can't be forgotten as key to the fact Jasper is with us now.

When we were told Jasper would be transferred I naively thought a 'simple' ambulance ride...which couldn't be further from the truth. They put him in an incredible moving hospital with all life support needed and then also onto a cold mat that reduced his temperature to save his brain from damage. They succeeded.

I can't do justice to what they do but here it is from their website. They left us one of their storks and it warmed our hearts. Even if you can knit one of those, it helps. 

'The ambulance that comes to collect your baby will be specially designed and equipped with the necessary specialist equipment to provide intensive care for sick newborn babies.

Your baby will be placed in an incubator to keep it warm, will have its heart rate, breathing and blood pressure monitored and may require equipment to help with breathing.  This will ensure a safe transfer to the unit that will care for your baby.

The transport team will all be specialists in the care of sick, newborn babies and will include a doctor or an advanced neonatal nurse practitioner, a senior neonatal nurse, and a paramedic. They will all have undertaken specialist transport training.'

They also made such an effort to get Jasper back last minute to the North Middlesex on Christmas Eve and treated my hard worked for stash of Breast milk with as much care as Jasper to bring it to North Mid!

Any Knitting or Crochet fans, please please do use below as your next project.

It was almost 3 days in we discovered they had hung one from Jaspers machines and it was truly heartwarming. To think someone out there had made this for him. A gift no matter what we could keep and use to share his story.
