I confess, this is first time I've read this thread and having done so, just couldn't write for tears. I too had to look up Edwards Syndrome. My heart goes out to you and your family and your wee grand-daughter. I pray you all get a chance to express in person your love for her. XX

Juts seen this having been camping this week. I am so sorry to hear the extent of the problem Mucker I remember you posting a while ago but hadn't realised the severity of the issue. I hope you get as long as possible with your granddaughter and that she is in no pain. I hope the pain that you and your family will inevitably feel can be eased a little by the knowledge of how much you all love each other

Thinking of you

No it's not a terrible thing to ask... and thanks again for everyone's kind words and concerns.
Latest is... we've just got back from opening their curtains and feeding their cat!!!

OK... Still little progress... they went back to hospital at 9pm last night (Saturday) as planned, and the hormone doodah to induce labour was re-administered there and then. Apparently, theory being that this could take up to 30 hours to achieve anything... not that the first lot achieved anything.
There has been talk of deliberate breaking of waters to speed things up, but for now, they (the hospital) are holding back on that option due to possible complications in general... and added discomfort for our daughter... so the wait continues, but with mention of "It feels like it's actually doing something this time" (as of about 11am today) and the fact that the sun is shining, I have, with or without good reason, got high hopes for today!

Still a lot of if's and but's, still a lot of hopes and fears in the air, but ultimately, little in the way of facts or progress.

I'm (it's all about me, me, me!) beginning to think this is turning into the longest weekend of my life (seeing as it started at Thursday lunchtime).
Daughter is crawling the Labour ward walls with boredom and frustration. Her partner is holding up well considering the surroundings (A very long story, but basically he has a severely disabled daughter (our 4th grandchild) already, so "bad memories/experiences of hospitals generally, and "Poorly baby wards" in particular, etc"!).
Baby's two other sisters have visited, so at least the surroundings won't be a shock to them, should they get the opportunity to re-visit to meet their new sister.

Muckerette is being an absolute tower of strength (and I know for certain that will not last!) I'm just plodding on like a typical bloke, with no emotions, and little in the way of practical skills, but doing an excellent job as a temp. chauffeur, and all round good egg!

We're off back to the hospital in the next hour or so, by which time, I'm hoping daughter is starting to at least look like she's in labour!

We're all making the most of the lighthearted/positive mood for now, at least (probably some sort of defence mechanism?), and putting any fears to one side for now (or at least giving that impression!)

If any of you are away camping, I hope the sun is shining on you, as it currently is here, on us.
I'm not jealous, as whilst we still have hope, I wouldn't change this weekend for anything... although I reserve the right to change my mind at any given moment.

Please, please, please, keep those fingers crossed for us. Things may have been somewhat delayed, but I'm certain this positivity won't last forever, and that the extra help you are all passing on will still be (very much) needed some time soon.

Love and hugs back at yers!

I keep looking in to see if there is any news. I can't even begin to understand how you all must be feeling, such a rollercoaster of emotions I would imagine.

Fingers still crossed for those cuddles x

Still got fingers crossed here too. All the love in the world is sent to you & your family ...& you doing the blokey & practical stuff may not seem much to you but takes the burden off others to be able to do what they need & want.

In my thoughts

Having been induced myself with my eldest that in itself wasn't too pleasant for me and from start to finish took almost 4 days to work! I went in Sunday night and my daughter arrived Thursday afternoon, so on that side of things your daughter has my sympathy!

Still thinking of you all and checking back here regularly x

Sending you a big hug and hoping you have some time with your little granddaughter when she does arrive. x

Don't know you Muker but am praying for you and your Family and your little grandaughter, who is still very much a life! Hope your daughter has a safe uneventful delivery of a live daughter. Hope you can all treasure that time. Face whatever happens next when it comes. Many babies die unexpectedly shortly after birth, at least you are prepared if this does happen. No-one knows the time she will have with you, bless her.
