The date was with...

The date, of course, was with Paul. Lee Mead would have been nice but I would have had to tell him that I was unavailable last night. Paul and I have spent very little time together over the last 3 years. I have been living in hospital for long periods, most of the time over the last 18 months and, even when home, most of our conversation has been that of anguished parents over our son. A lot of our own life, dreams and ambitions have gone along in parallel.I'm not sure even how well we know each other these days and, now William has had his transplant, we have to rebuild this part of our lives as well. We have to start at the beginning ans see where we go. So, yesterday was a 'hot date' - one rule - William was not to be the subject of the conversation. We learned things we had missed about each other over the last year as well as things we had misunderstood. It was an important thing to do.

Hi hun,

I'm glad that you and Paul got some time together on your date, and that it went well.

And I'm glad that William enjoyed his delivery, I hope he can eat the chocs soon! How is his 'learning to eat' journey going?

Love and hugs,

Becky, Seren & Dylan xxx
