This post is going to look different as I am experimenting with blogging from my iPad.
I wanted to give you all an update. Elliott's surgery took place on Tuesday as there were further tests beforehand. Here is my brave boy having just had all these guide circles placed on his head - we chose to make lots of silly suggestions as to what these were for!
His operation was long and believe me I felt like I was holding my breath the whole time. By late afternoon he was in the High Dependency ward with lots of nurses fussing over him. The surgeon said it could not have gone better and was very pleased - all in all a huge relief.
He has a way to go but the main surgery is out of the way and my beautiful boy was even cracking jokes as I said goodnight.
I am fortunate to be staying across the road from the hospital in Ronald McDonald House, Camberwell.
I have to confess I did not know much about this charity until now but I've made it a mission to find out more. I spoke with one of the volunteers and she explained that the McDonalds restaurants pay for refurb/construction of these home-away-from-home dwellings for families with children in hospital but once the building is complete each one is run on donations.
Once my life clicks back to normal watch out! .... I'm organising a crafty day and online crafty kits with all proceeds going to this beautiful house - it has made my stay in London with Elliott both manageable and stress free.
Again I must say a zillion thanks to you all for your comments, messages and more - you are all so very wonderful.
Take care friends.
