83: arrival

Serious little gentleman walks in checks in
Sits patiently through hurry hurry masks and wires

 

94: mask on

A comfortable in and out while we do puzzles,
put mouths where Mr Potato’s nose would like to be.

 

96: mask on

Pointing out the target reached and Mummy mask off
And finally some food now please and sips of drink

 

90: mask off

Eat and greedily eat and chat and gulp down drink while
Beep beep beep beep beep

 

88: mask off

BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP

 

86: mask off

Too long ignored, your ribcage heaves
and you talk. in bursts. of two.

 

97: mask on

Mask on watch TV and mask on do some sums and
mask on colour Peppa Pig in bold and violent red.

 

93: mask on

In sleep your peaceful resting face with green elastic tight
then sleep disturbed with slipping mask and slipping numbers

 

98: mask off

Unplug yourself for toilet trip slow slow wash hands
and amble back then show off your amazing score

 

95: mask off

The baseline and the path to home, the chart is ticked
and meds in hand you skip delighted to the door
A buzz a click and out you run to freedom and fresh air

      Me too! It is very hard. But they’re such troopers. The Boy actually had a very positive experience and speaks of his time on the Children’s Ward fondly, as if it was a little holiday.
