My little boy of 10 weeks old became really unwell with bronchitis. Being a first time mum it’s was really scary to see him on oxygen, feeding tubes and having to get suction to help him. The attention he got from all nurses in the ward was amazing but in particular Kirsty and Saffy. Not only did they comfort and care for my son but they ensured me it wasn’t my fault. I had really bad mum guilt as I had been unwell with cold before he was unwell.
Saffy was Excellent during the night, feeding my son so I could catch up on some much needed rest. It’s not an easy thing for mums to do yet I felt completely comfortable.The reassurance and the they way the helped you understand what is going on with your son is amazing.No matter what I needed Kirsty was there through the day to support me n my son. Teach me ways to help him through uncomfortable times for him. Giving me great advice for home care for him as in other experiences you left to figure that out on your own. I could tell my son like her too 10 weeks old and smiling at Kirsty. To me this just confirmed what an amazing job they did.
All in all the children’s hospital in Glasgow should be very proud of ward 2c.
"The care my boy got."
