Ongoing but nothing too scary …
Son of a food blogger assesses supplied breakfast.
Food blogger dad makes urgent cafeteria run for bacon and egg sangers x 3.
Coffee quite good, Greek salad looks great.
Staff fantastic, other kids and parents cool as.
Could be a long day!
Dad makes Alfrieda St lunch run; returns with awesome, freshly cooked chicken feet.
Having already dispensed with his hospital lunch, Bennie makes short work of the chook bits.
Bennie and I left Sunshine Hospital at about 5pm. He’d been transferred there by ambulance from Footscray just after midnight, after his mum had taken him there about 9pm on Friday night.
We left with prescriptions for antibiotics and ventolin, and an asthma plan. Even though this is probably not asthma.
It’s an outbreak of a bronchial condition we’ve been dealing with for quite a few years. The staff at Footscray were concerned enough, specifically about pneumonia, to transfer him to Sunshine.
We appreciate the care and the cautious approach that was taken.
I have told Bennie he’s old enough to assume some ownership of this, including medications and weather-suitable clothing.
There’s lots worse things to be visiting doctors and hospitals about. But this kind of thing can and does kill people.
I also found out that, at a pinch, I can publish a blog post – including photos – using just my phone!
We may even return – we liked the look of the chicken korma and chick pea and egg curry in the Sunshine Hospital cafeteria.
