Not great news

Well, I went to CT to see Coralie and Tim, Henk stayed at home.

We took Tim to the Red Cross Children’s Hospital Tuesday for a bone marrow test to check for leukaemia. It was a very long day and Tim was wiped out when we left, he had a hole in his bum, and pelvis through which they had taken the bone marrow and got pretty sore after we got home.

He passed out in the car on the way home – he was so punchy from the drugs, poor baby. He had two grannies, one an Ouma, one a Granny, a god-mother, an uncle, and his parents to look after him, so he was spoiled for choice!

We left at 7am and got home 18h30. It was a long, wet windy and horrible-traffic-day.

Anyway real results are due in a week, but he is a VERY sick baby. I looked up on Google Juvenile Chronic Leukaemia, and there is no good news there.

I am in hiding until results come in, you understand

Such a little person should NOT have to endure such pain and trauma. No one should really. We trust with you for only good news. xxx

I'm so sorry to find out that Tim is so ill. I hope that the results bring good news and a treatment plan that will help him return to health. Hang in there, grandma!
