Birthday Suprise

Keir will be three on Tuesday (28th). We received a nice surprise from Nutricia in the post this week; a parcel with Keir’s name on it. Inside there was a birthday card, a recipe for a birthday cake and a packet of Loprofin Mix. What a lovely gesture! Thank you Nutricia for thinking of us!

My plan was to bake the cake today in case it failed. If I started today, I would have enough time to make few more attempts by Monday night. I have to confess I am not a great baker. I have not made many birthday cakes with success and never even attempted to decorate one so I was little apprehensive about making a low protein cake. It is like a double challenge bake for me.

This morning, as I was heading towards the kitchen to make a start, I heard my husband call over. He was changing Keir’s nappy. ‘Oh oh’ I thought. Poor Keir had blisters all over his nappy area. Shriek! Little I realised we had another surprise brewing up for his birthday. Chickenpox!  I’d better make his cake extra special.

    1. Thank you. He had it badly and it was worst on his actual birthday. He is so much better now. I am glad it is done and over. We didn’t get his phe results though so I have no idea how it affected his levels.
