Yesterday Dounya went to Belfast to have her 1st cardiac appointment after her surgery. Although she is doing brilliant feeding wise and in her weight gaining , I was a bit nervous about this appointment....you never know!! But thank god her heart is working well and she just has a slight leakage in her AV valve. But the doctor said that this is normal is after the kind of surgery
she had. They will keep an eye on it to make sure it will not increase. We also can stop giving her the diuretics which is great...she is now officially medicine free!! She has to come back in 4 months time so all in all it was a good appointment!!
It is a bit of an strange time now here in Northern-Ireland after everything that happenend in the last couple of days. Useless killings by a group of people for whom I really don't have a polite name to call them.. Why do they want to put people back in misery and sorrow?
I feel so sorry for the young men and the police officer that lost their lives and my thoughts are with their families.
The police officer was killed near where we live and close to the school my boys go.
It is sad to see the place where it happened...
The whole community here is feeling sad and angry over this because they went trough a lot during the Troubles and they certainly don't want to go back to that time!
I have seen it only only on the telly when I was younger and still living in Holland but I have heard stories about it from people here and it was a terrible scary time...
Hopefully these horrible events will unite the people in Northern-Ireland in their effort to keep the peace process going.
