Hamza. That’s what we named this little lion which Coraline’s Aunt, Uncle and cousins sweetly posted to us as a gift to open on the ward. It was so good to get some post.
He is named after our two-week old neighbour on the ward, Hamza. Just before our package arrived his mother had told us about his name. She said they had learned he had a heart condition before he was born and knew he would need an operation soon after he was born, so they had named him Hamza which means strong, lionheart. He had had his operation two days before Coraline. His mother was happy for me to write about this here.#lionheart
