“He’s okay and making well, but they are being vigilant and cautious, thankfully,” she said and added “This strain is extremely powerful and contagious, so I do hope that people take extra care in the coming weeks.”
“Really didn’t want this to be the start of my families new year. Really didn’t want to be back in a hospital so soon after his traumatic birth. Once again I’m in awe of nurses and doctors. It makes me even more proud of my brother, a&e doctor @pondermed and my father, king GP @davidlloyd73 ….”
“Please wish baby a speedy recovery. He’s 9llbs 7 now, so he’s a stronger and bigger boy than he was when we were last in a hospital room (and the needle went into his hand with louder more powerful screams. Love and best wishes to everyone.”
Jessie Cave welcomed the baby boy in October after a “traumatic” delivery that left her son in the neonatal unit.
