Best Laid Plans


I’ve described below our final night, but at one stage this afternoon it looked like it might not be. Hannah rang me up at work to tell me she had just been told that the last bed in the special care baby unit (NICU at St Mary’s) had just been taken. This meant that there would be no bed for our baby should it be needed. The result of that was Mr Ridley needed to be contacted to decide whether to delay the delivery until a bed was free (several days) or transfer Hannah to either Portsmouth or Southampton. I had just enough time to pop round to my manager’s office and explain this potential change of plan before Hannah texted me to say that they had found a bed in paediatrics and everything was back on for 9am tomorrow. Hannah was very upset when she initially heard about the possibility of it not happening tomorrow so it was really good that something was found.
