Hi, thought I would write a little update on Pickle. Today she had her fourth MRI in her short life, the second of which was under general anaesthetic. It's been a big day: Mr Sippycups got Pickle up at 1.15am this morning to give her a bottle before the cut-off of 2am and then we… Continue reading MRI
As anyone who knows me will attest I don't do uncertainty. I like certainty, or at the very least a very strong statistical probability.

It can refer to what you are now aware of and what you wish other people were… Continue reading Awareness (Day 30)
Today has been lovely 😊. Pickle has been really well and actually seemed to enjoy eating. She has got some new shoes that actually stay on her feet (plus they were reduced to £8 in the Clarks sale-bargain!!) and she had a fantastic hydrotherapy session. She has been an absolute superstar and it was lovely… Continue reading Shoes!
