Big Sigh of Relief!

William had his endoscope and biopsies today and all looks good - NO REJECTION!! I am hugely relieved. We have to get on top of his high stoma outut and the blood sugars but these are just a matter of tweaking. It looks like we will stay in Birmingham for a few more days at least to sort these things out. I will blog more tomorrow as I am about to get the best nights sleep in ages now we know all is well.

I would have blogged more earlier in the evening but have been stuck in one of those books you just can't put down until you have finished it. Have you read 'My Sister's Keeper'. If not, beg, borrow or buy a copy, especially if you are Mum to a child like William. You will see yourself and your family on every page and it will be a huge eye opener. I will blog more about this tomorrow as well but, if you stumble across a copy in the mean time I strongly recommend you pick it up.

Hi Sarah,
Thanks for the good news. Just thought I'd let you know that I'm still reading. Max is doing well and will be back in The Brompton in the summer for his next heart operation. I met Oliver's Mum who had lost your blog address so I've passed it on.
Hope you are all back home soon.
Best wishes
Holly

I cried absolute buckets from about the middle of the book right to the end. It was incredible.

But far more importantly than that... YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!

Very pleased for you lovely. Another step in the right direction and back towards home :) xx

Fantastic news Sarah :D I hope the stoma output and blood sugar fluctuations can soon be brought under control.

I've read 'My Sister's Keeper' and thought it was incredible. It really made me think and was very powerful.
