Aurora's open heart surgery went as well as can be expected, although she did lose more blood than they hoped. Her small size (due to her prematurity) has made this all a little trickier. She is still sedated to give her body the much needed opportunity to rest and recover. Today Aurora had her chest closed back up and her sternum wired together. She has unfortunately also developed NEC (necrotising enterocolitis), which they are treating on top of everything else. Aurora & her family still need plenty of prayers and well wishes sent their way. Yesterday was Aurora's due date - all of this has happened before she was even meant to enter the world. What a true fighter ❤
Hats off to the nurses & doctors looking after Aurora. You are absolute superheroes 🙌

My First Cuddle With Dad 💙 Such a special moment & such a special milestone 🙌 A dad's love for their beautiful baby is immeasurable, and that bond is so strong. Cuddles with dad & mum are so important in forming that special bond early on, and in the development of prem (and full term) bubs. Give your little darling an extra hug or two today 💕 #premmiemilestonecards #milestonemonday

- will travel. 🌎 I drink it every single day- even (and especially!) when I'm traveling! The body is extra stressed when you're out of a routine so we need to fuel it right.
Cheers to staying healthy while traveling!
