Story

Ok so this just got SCARY!!

I have just signed up to do a skydive and raise money for queens medical centre Nottingham! I’m now scared! I need to raise £395 for this and £120 for my Abseil on the 21st September! Please help me do this! Looked up at the hospital today and thought ok it’s not to bad so the abseil will be a test before the big one on 5th October!! 

Just thought I would add a bit in about what QMC have down for molly! When I was pregnant my scans showed up that something was not right with her. She didn’t seam to be able to wee. Her bladder took over all her body at the end and I was told her lungs might not even develop. Molly decided to come 6 weeks early but I was happy as my body had swollen up my legs had  tripled in size. No joke if I drank it went in my legs!! When she was born I was terrified!! They got a  catheter in her straightaway and she passed 600ml of fluid! For a 4lb 14oz baby’s that’s a lot! She was then screaming and was taken to the NICU in QMC. The start of a 6 month stay! Molly was and is a fighter. It was confirmed that she had a very  rare condition called MMIHS. http://www.mmihs.org/ This is a condition where she is limited to eating. She’s aloud 6  single quavers a day and 80ml of milk. She’s fed via a  intravenous drip in her central line called TPN. She’s 16 hours dependant. Molly also has a very large bladder and is not capable of doing a wee so she’s catheterised every three hours throughout the day. I also have to empty the contents of her stomach twice today as the acid and food just sits there. She also had a stoma bag for when she can pass things though her 25cm of small bowl. As her mummy I have turned into her nurses and have had to  Learn no end of skills in the 6 months she was in hospital. It’s a balancing act keeping her fluid levels safe for her. I also have 3 other children and they have been amazing though all of this! Molly has overcome liver disease and her kidneys have improved massively and well as having 2 bleeds on the brain and a hole in her heart! She’s my  miracle. Being a single mum is not easy!  

Any spelling mistakes I  apologise for not good at the writing side give me a plane to jump out of  rather than writing haha!!
