Mo has a TV next to his bed, and there is a big playroom with lots of toys where he can play. Mum has a foldable bed that can be put down at night time so Mo and Mum can sleep next to each other. The nurses’ check on Mo every few hours, day and night to make sure he is alright. In the morning the doctors come to see Mo and his Mum, they examine Mo and talk to him to see how he is feeling. Mo feels a lot better and the doctors think he is a lot better too. The doctors come to see him again in the afternoon and are happy for Mo to go home as he is back to his usual self. Mum and Mo wait for a bit until his medications arrive from Pharmacy. The nurse explains how to take the medicine and Mum and Mo are discharged home.
