A special boy

My husband and I are off to see our friend and her 3 year old boy tonight. They are in Bristol Children's Hospital as, just over a year ago he was diagnosed with Leukaemia. He has been doing really well and has responded fantastically to the chemotherapy but is currently in isolation, after a hip operation (he had a build up of fluid) after coming out in chicken pox. Poor boy, I am not sure life could throw anything else at him.

We admire our friend so much, she is a inspiration. She lost her husband in a tragic accident when their son was just 5 months old.

It is a very humbling experience, visiting the children's ward and when we saw them last week, I came home feeling so grateful for our healthy boys.

We bow down to all the parents who are living, 24 hours a day, in a hospital, supporting their poorly children. You all deserve medals of solid gold.
