This post is this weeks entry for The Gallery over at Sticky Fingers
This week is a special week over at The Gallery, Christine Mosler from Thinly Spread is off on an amazing journey with Save The Children to Mozambique. She has been invited along as part of their campaign to make a lot of noise ahead of the Global Vaccination Summit on June 13. The aim is to encourage the world’s leaders to plug the vaccination funding gap. They want a fair deal for children all over the world!

So the theme for this weeks gallery is I’m grateful for… and this week I found the theme far too easy. You see all this talk about vaccinations got me thinking about modern medicine and how lucky we are in the UK today. Regular readers will know of MasterB’s arrival into the world, he arrived 6 weeks early by emergency c-section. MasterB had to be resuscitated at birth as he was born blue and floppy ( I believe it took them 5 minutes to get him breathing by himself, I of course was unaware as I was under general anaesthetic), I lost over 3 litres of blood and received 6 units of blood and 3 units of plasma during theatre but we are both here now 3 months later, fit and healthy which is all thanks to the care we received and modern medicine, sometimes we take how lucky we are for granted but I can never be more grateful for anything in my life for the wonderful NHS and the care we received that day. And so here are my photos for this weeks gallery….
