Treatment has started

Hooray, we finally got going on Thomas’s treatment yesterday, and he is currently under anaesthetic for his second lot as I write. All is well, although we did have a rather grumpy Thomas all afternoon yesterday.We were a couple of hours late starting treatment today,as the machine wasn’t working ( a not infrequent occurence we have been told), so we have been trying desperately to keep a hungry and thirsty toddler distracted (he hadn’t had anything since 7pm last night and it is now 12.30pm). Hoping to keep the food intake up as much as we can through all this, but luckily I think Thomas has got some reserve on him….
We also moved into a house yesterday to give us a bit more room for when grannies and babies arrive. Huge fridge, backyard and a double garage, we are swiftly becoming the all american family.

    We are sat in alma de Cuba enjoying the meal we won the other weekend at the auction. Gilly is driving so I’ve sorted the bottle of wine, but it wasn’t in a brown paper bag. I am disapointed.
    Remember that we are all thinking of you and Hope that the American gas board is up to scratch.
    Gilly ordered pudding with fireworks in. I am not joking.
    Hope the bump behaves.
    Chris and Gilly

    Truly extraordinary where life leads. A kiss for the little man and then if you could kindly ask him (amongst all his treatments etc.) to give Mummy & Daddy a kiss in return. In our thoughts always.

    (Becca when you have a mo’ – can you give us a brief update on yourself and the new baby, will you have it at the same hospital as Thomas is visiting, have you met the midwives etc. Thanks lov xx)
