Just a very quick note to say hello, we are home. Thanks all so much for all the well wishes and thoughts. Astrid was a very brave little girl. She amazed us all. Had it been me I’d have been screaming my head off if I couldn’t see for four days. The little head is no longer black and blue but purple and yellow and the little eyes are slowly opening fully. She’s still quite swollen and she will only sit happily in the car seat or in my arms.
I’ll write a proper post about it all in the next few days. Our little family saying helped us through; “everything is always over in the end”. We’re nearly there.
