Still no new line...

I have managed to escapte into Starbucks for an hour or so while William is with out community team member from CHASE. I really need to get some work done so this is just another quick update. William's line came out on Thursday but we have still been unable to put a new one in as he is still very poorly with infection. They feel the infection is coming from his intestines and is "systematic" meaning throughout his body, rather than just simply a "line infection". The fact that the line is out and he is still poorly does support this. We are hoping to get the line in tomorrow or Friday as he has had very little nutrition over the last month and is looking rather pale and skinny. It has turned into a lot longer haul than we thought and poor Hope and Ellie are getting upset with yet another period of being apart from Mummy and Mummy is feeling exactly the same way! It is all very wearing but can't be helped. We all hope the new line is in as soon as possible and Wills can come home so we can all settle down again!

Aww, I'm so sorry to hear that William's still so poorly. :o(

I really hope that the treatments kick in soon and he starts to improve and can have a line back in so he can get some nutrition.

It's not in the same league, but Dylan's still unwell as well, the 3 weeks of iv's don't seem to have helped much, so he might be needing to start another course on Friday, but we won't find out until his Dr sees how he is on Friday.

Sending you lots of love and hugs.
