Helen's 19th birthday!!!
We visited in the afternoon. We didn't really know what to buy her so bought DVD's, clothes and smellies!!
We had a quiet Christmas. Visited Helen on Christmas Day. I left a couple of banners for the nurses to put up for her birthday, which they did. She got a card from the HCA's and nurses, which was really sweet. She got loads of new earrings and several balloons. Her boyfriend got her a beautiful bear that he recorded a message on.
She has an infected toe nail on the right foot. It is red but no pus yet. Toenails are ingrowing on both feet. I informed the nursing staff and they will ask the doctor to review on 26/12.
We were informed by the nurses that Helen is moving on 21 January to Holy Cross. Have asked for clarification and whether this is correct.
Helen's hair cut was cut off on 24 December as per my request :( It was getting so matted and couldn't be brushed properly. It looks lovely but at the same time it looks strange!
She is very sweaty looking with a temp of around 37.5. But she is alert. Her head is very concave after her shunt.
