Living Arrows 2017 // 27/52

buzzoole codeThis year I am joining in with What the Redhead Said‘s project Living Arrows which is all about celebrating childhood.

Each week I will be posting a picture of Dexter showing what we have been up to or something new he has learnt.

What an awful start we had to the week. Last week I posted about how we ended up in a Alder Hey on Saturday after Dexter falling in the bath and cutting open his lip. On Monday we had an appointment to see a plastic surgeon and it was decided Dex needed a small operation to stitch up his lip to stop there being a permement jagged scar. He was put to sleep and the procedure was done by a lovely consultant who did an amazing job, we were able to take him home a short while later.

He spent the next couple of days recovering at home with me; he was tired, grumpy and dehydrated but looking at him now, you can barely tell all of this happened less than a week ago. He is now back on solid foods (we had to give purees for a few days) and is as happy as Larry. We are returning to Alder Hey on Tuesday for a follow up appointment. Here’s to a better week next week!

    It looks really neat, I don’t think you’d even notice unless you knew to look! Poor you though, I bet it was an awful time. Thank goodness for great surgeons! #LivingArrows

    I hope tomorrow goes well lovely! Atleast he’s still able to give that big ol’ grin of his!! I tell you, it will be one of those super hot scars when he’s older – the type that girls have to lean in REALLY close to see (if at all). #livingarrows
