Hospital day

A day exactly as unexciting as you would imagine. Which isn’t the worst thing in the world of course, since it meant entirely routine test and appointments. But so much waiting! Share this:TwitterFacebookEmailLike this:Like Loading...

Four weeks and five operations later 1

I wanted to get to this sooner, but really, nothing was important than being there with Will as much as possible, and I didn’t always feel like writing things down. But that’s changed. We brought Will home tonight. Well, home in as much as the hospital apartments that I’ve been living in for a month ...

And today was the big one

Yes, today was the day, the big kidney donation and transplant to Will double-whammy. And yes, you can bet I’ve written this well after the fact, because I was certainly in no position to write anything on this day! And retrospectively, you can be sure it all went very well Share this:TwitterFacebookEmailLike this:Like Loading...

Off to Sydney…

… For the first time since I moved away in early February. The whole family is going down there for just under a week, most for medical stuff for Will and Alex, but also the break and the shopping will be good. We’re actually staying at Ronald McDonald House, which sounds serious, but is really ...

Train in vain

Train in vain
The train trips seem longer than normal at the moment, with the weather really weird and variable. Last week it was over 30 degrees on one day, and now it’s back to winter, at barely 10 degrees in the morning, and apparently no more than 16 for the day. And the worst thing in the ...

A wee bit of progress for Will

Will has a lot of medical problems, as anyone that knows us is aware. Problems in his kidney and bladder, and it’s followed through to a number of other developmental areas. It’s tough, but we cope. On Monday, he had another operation, but just a small one this time. He has what’s called a visacostomy ...
