Harvey is now HOME!!!. .

Again, apologies for the overdue update. The past week has been a manic rush to get the house sorted because on Friday, Harvey came home. We have been waiting so long for that day to come and finally, it was our turn. We kept it quiet, we didn't want to tempt fate when really all I wanted to do was shout it from the roof top. A special thank you, (although thank you doesn't seem enough) to the amazing nurses at Sheffield Children's and especially on our ward/home M2 who made the day possible to bring Harvey home. In our eyes you will never be nurses to us but our friends and we love you all dearly. You have really helped us through the bad times and have enjoyed the good times with us. We miss not seeing you all daily and not being part of our lives like you have been but we will be visiting often and can't wait to see you all. 
Since Harvey's return home he has been happy and very smiley. We have fallen into routine with IVs, bag changes and general cares. I think the key is to not let an illness run your life, make it adjust to you!! And then show it the door and prove medicine wrong, which is what Harvey will do, just you wait and see. I kept telling the staff 'you watch, one day, he'll attend an appointment then come to visit, walking, talking and chewing on a chicken drumstick!!' Thing is, I say that but would probably freak if I saw Harvey walk towards me having a conversation.. Would be very strange :/  .. 
So, we are to visit hospital twice a week and have the community nurse (our Michelle) visit every 2 weeks. We have deliveries coming from all angles and mounts of supplies but hay, he's home and its all worth it. Here's a couple of snaps of the real supermini man who at present is doing good..
